Happiness = Competitive Advantage.
Volumes of research prove that happiness isn’t a “soft proposition,” but a wise business strategy to drive sustainable competitive advantage by making making people and organizations more resilient, innovative and sustainable. In fact, Harvard Business Review’s 2012 “Spotlight on Happiness” issue cited that happy employees are 31% more productive, their sales are 37% greater and their creativity is 3x higher. The powerful link between happiness and business performance is clear, but “what” happiness is and “how” to create it has remained largely illusive, until now
Happiness Can Be Defined.
Six years of research, development and teaching lead to our definition of "authentic" happiness: "The ability to locate and sustain personal serenity and excitement about life, regardless of circumstances." When shared and explored with others, this simple yet profound working definition begins to take the "mystery" out of happiness itself and inspires people to take the empowering steps of learning, practicing and measuring authentic happiness in their own lives.
Happiness Can Be Learned, Practiced and Measured.
Like a muscle, happiness must be located and worked in order to grow. That's exactly why we built Happiness Practice™ - a ground-breaking program designed to help people and organizations learn, practice and measure happiness and its impact on business performance.
The Happiness Practice™ teaches five key principles for creating “inside-out happiness and is supported by dynamic tools to equip people in daily practice. The success of The Happiness Practice™ is measured using Return On Happiness (ROH)™. ROH qualitatively and quantitatively determines not just increases in happiness, but also business performance improvements such as engagement, resilience, innovation, sustainability, collaboration, loyalty, and more. Because every organization’s goals are different, we customize measurements to be meaningful every time.
