Hire a Chief Happiness Officer!

Wouldn't it be awesome if every company had a CEO and a CHO! A Chief Happiness Officer!
And while the CEO was busy attending to the bottom line the CHO kept his eyes on the "wellbeing of the company" - making sure that people working there were happy individuals (of course in the context: happy people perform better).

My friend Alexander Kjerulf is exactly that. He is a Chief Happiness Officer and one of the world's leading experts on happiness at work. He speaks and consults in businesses all over the world, including leading organizatons like IBM, Hilton, LEGO, HP, IKEA and many others - teaching them how to become happy organisations! He also wrote a book about it Happy Hour is 9 to 5.

His site Positive Sharing is just full of simple ideas and inspiration that all qualify as Happy Pills! Like this one when he forced the managers to do such a simple thing as greeting their employees in the morning! It doesn't have to be more complicated than that! Don't ya just love it!



Love ya!
