Zappos believes in delivering it. Coke wants you to open it. Countless books try to help you achieve it. Research demonstrates that you are more productive with it.
And yet the truth is that so few people feel it, especially at work.
Is it because leaders don’t create “happy” workplaces? Is it because work is inherently miserable? Is it because of our attitudes about work? Or perhaps it’s who we’re working for (more on that in a minute).
A negative boss, bad working conditions and a toxic culture can certainly make people unhappy.
I’ve also seen how leaders can create happier and more productive employees by creating the right culture and work environment.
However, I believe the biggest determinant of our happiness at work is… us.
Our happiness has less to do with forces outside of us and more to do with what’s inside of us.
Happiness is an inside job… and it begins in our minds.
