Recently, I gave this TEDx talk in beautiful theatre in Budapest. I wanted to challenge the widely held belief that the words ‘happiness’ and ‘work’ don’t belong in the same sentence. I present evidence about how functional happiness is by helping us create and seize opportunities as well build relationships. In a business context happiness at work helps foster a creative innovative culture and improves business performance. After making the case for happiness I go on to talk about what the key actions a business leader can take to improve the happiness of their workplace and present some interesting case studies.
All of this in just 17 minutes! I hope you enjoy it.
