This competitive edge is available to all who put in the effort. Referencing  Shawn Achor’s work (Author of New York Times best-selling books ‘The Happiness Advantage’ and ‘Before Happiness), Khyati Kapai, a seasoned trainer and coach committed to ‘facilitating positive change by improving thinking’, will share 7 principles that fuel higher fulfilment and performance at work.

Nic Marks

Original thinker, Statistician and CEO and Founder of Friday

Measuring Happiness at Work

Building a positive work culture is not easy but business leaders who do are rewarded with multiple benefits. In this webinar, original thinker, statistician and TED speaker Nic Marks will turn the traditional assumption that success leads to happiness on its head - and present evidence to show that the reverse is true: happiness leads to success, in terms of both profitability and productivity. Examining the concepts from both a personal and organisational perspective, Nic will present the compelling business case and provide insights into how leaders can improve employee happiness.  Importantly he will examine how you can in fact measure happiness along with the key drivers of happiness.  Attend this session to discover why focusing on building and measuring happiness in the workplace is critical to building a prosperous business and an amazing place to work.
