Every human being is longing for purpose, meaning and happiness. Happiness is one of the most complex phenomena in individuals and society. Scientific research and experience has taught us a lot about the factors that contribute to a state of happiness at the individual level. And intuitively, we very well know what makes us happy. Yet, in our daily lives, human beings are very difficult to manage. We often behave irrationally, procrastinate or simply act in a way that does not contribute to our well-being.
This irrational relation with happiness and well-being does not only apply to individuals, but also to society as a whole. In the end, a state has the purpose of protecting the security, quality of life and well-being of its people. In the US, the right to the pursuit of happiness is even guaranteed at the basis of the Declaration of Independence. And yet, states, like individuals, take so many illogical and even harmful actions. We want to help our countries and our people achieve a state of happiness by exploring the vast body of research related to happiness and well-being.
Join us in this workshop to discover how happiness is possible in the workplace as we identify your personal strengths, opportunities, aspirations and results.
