Happiness as a source of performance
Happy employees are more productive !
This is the result of many studies as it appears that employees who feel happy are more efficient and are also better managers. They feel more committed to the company and show lower turnover rates. They are less often absent for illness and their risk of burnout is less important.
Furthermore, this phenomenon is contagious: the mood of leaders and managers has a direct impact on their teams. Thus, employees whose manager feels happy are more likely to feel themselves happy, be healthy and consider they work in a climate conducive to performance. A performance gap measured at about 30%!
It is happiness that fuels success, not the other way round. It is not success that makes happy: it is happiness that leads to more efficiency. And when we become more positive, our brain becomes more engaged, creative, motivated, energetic, healthier, resilient and productive.
Reprogramming our brains to become more positive. Contrary to popular belief, we do not have a determined propensity to happiness. But we can deliberately act on our happiness level and reap the benefits of a happier and more positive mind-set to achieve the extraordinary in our work and in our lives.
