How Positive Psychology Can Help Your Organization

February 13, 2012 § 2 Comments

This  highly entertaining talk from Shawn Anchor might seem a bit off-topic but I feel it’s very relevant. It discussies the importance of happiness, not just at the work place.

Many of the interventions I speak about on here focus on the consumer/user/audience experience to create remarkable moments. Equally important for a successful organization and often neglected is the employee experience. If an organization wants peak performance from its team they have to create an environment and culture that focuses on their well being and happiness. Some do it by developing an stimulating environment using architecture and interior design (LEGO, Google, etc). Other organizations focus on a set values and living these values every day through actions and behavior (Zappos). Obviously a combination of both, with an environment that stimulates and a set of lived values that inspire, will have the most impact on the happiness of the employees and thus impact performance the most.
