ARE YOU HAPPY? WE NEED HAPPY CEO’S
As you drill down to get granular to control the bottom line (pardon my business babble) things can get grim. Punishing sales budgets. Grim. Anxious to be perfect Board Meetings? Grim.
Grinding along meetings focused on the present, not the future? Grim
How on earth to be happy? And why?
—let enough extraneous into the room so that you can find human humor
—step back and acknowledge some of the absurdity that goes on
—tell the goofy stories of the past
—get over yourself–Ceo’s aren’t that important!
—enjoy and allow the funny person on your team to be funny with no disparagement about not being serious enough about the business
—have a business cartoon wall in your conference room
—start with being happy yourself regardless of situations; then you will be contagious
Happiness is good energy. Hopeful energy. Contagious energy. Optimistic energy. Energy that gives an extra boost to do what seems impossible. Grim doesn’t make work work.
