Happiness at Work

At Management 3.0 we don’t just like to talk about happiness, we like to put it into action. 

So how do we do that? By curating content from the industry’s thought leaders and influencers about the best ways to implement tangible, practical daily happiness doses into your life.

Happiness is something we create, it is not something to achieve. It is a path you choose not a destination to arrive at.

Jurgen Appelo, Managing for Happiness
12 Steps to Happiness Poster

What is happiness and how do we know what makes us happy? While writing his book, Managing for Happiness, Jurgen Appelo spent time researching and learning about what makes people tick and what drives us to live happy, productive and fulfilling lives. After reading online articles and delving into works such as The Happiness Advantage by Shawn Achor, Stumbling on Happiness by Daniel Gilbert, The Happiness Advantage by Jonathan Haidt and Delivering Happiness by Tony Hsieh, he synthensized the results into what he’s coined as the 12 steps to happiness (all backed by science).
