The Happiness Advantage

Orange Frog™ Workshop

Do HaPPIER PEOPLE PRODUCE BETTER RESULTS?

We all know the answer to this....but common sense is not common action!


In fact, a recent Gallup survey of 230,000 employees across 142 countries made for stark reading:


13% happy/engaged

63% unhappy/not engaged

24% actively unhappy/disengaged



THE BENEFITS OF HAPPINESS

In recent research people who were happy were…


6 times more engaged

31% more productive

40% more likely to receive a promotion

3 times more creative

Achieved 56% Greater Sales

39% more likely to live to age 94

Reported 23% fewer fatigue symptoms




THE FORMULA IS BACKWARDS

More than a decade of groundbreaking research in the fields of positive psychology and neuroscience has proven in no uncertain terms that the relationship between success and happiness works the other way around than most believe it is.


We work with world renowned Positive Psychologist, Harvard Professor and best-selling author Shawn Achor who says:


"If you observe the people around you, you'll find most individuals follow the formula: if you work hard, you will become successful, and once you become successful, then you'll be happy. Success first, happiness second.


The only problem is that this formula is broken.


...not only do our goalposts of success keep getting pushed further and further out, so that happiness gets pushed over the horizon. Even more important, the formula is broken because it is backward.


Happiness and optimism actually fuel performance and achievement - giving us the competitive edge that I call the Happiness Advantage".



THE HAPPINESS ADVANTAGE

3 CORE IDEAS

Positive Outliers must be embraced – made to feel comfortable.


Happiness is a Choice!


Create Space for Positive Emotions – people want it but need to know when and where it is expected and appropriate…

3 ESSENTIAL PRACTICES

Mindset Matters: 

Create Positive Emotional Experiences


We need to set aside time and a means of routinely HELPING OTHERS reset their emotions to positive.


Tetris Effect: 

Create New Filters – to filter in “The Positive”


We need create time and a process to HELP OTHERS routinely scan for meaningful positive patterns.

Falling Up: 

Create, Identify, Tell and Publish Stories


We need to find time to celebrate stories of overcoming obstacles and publishing our stories of “winning against the odds” (Joseph Campbell).

YOU CAN BRING THE HAPPINESS ADVANTAGE TO your organisation

Imagine the power of embedding positive practices into work routines, reframing how workers interact to insure moments of joy, happiness and positivity.


As organizations and teams become more efficient they will agree to organize these practices into processes or routines that are repeated over and over.


Smart teams consciously identify routines and intentionally embed positive practices into the routines as a way of insuring their use.
