Our Story

Experience Happiness was born out of the recognition that unhealthy stress and burnout—a virtual epidemic in today’s fast-paced global marketplace—is impairing people’s ability to embrace change, cope with challenging situations, feel truly happy or even take on One. More. Thing. We help people and organizations thrive through happiness. We offer The Happiness Practice (THP) to empower leaders to proactively cultivate individual and organizational happiness while measuring Return On Happiness (ROH) at individual, team, and organizational levels. THP is a transformative life practice proven to simultaneously reduce stress/burnout, increase happiness, and build engaged, high-performance cultures of wellbeing that are strategically empowered to attract, retain and optimize talent.
