Can you really be both “happy” and “at work”? All of us want to be happy and engaged and satisfied with our job or in the career we’ve chosen. Loving work makes us less stressed, decreases our boredom, increases our motivation, and positively impacts our personal lives. As leaders, we want happier employees because they are more engaged and approach their work with enthusiasm and innovative perspectives. Studies show that employee disengagement increases anxiety and stress, negatively impacting health and well-being. Since we spend 90% of our waking hours at work in our lifetime, this is a critical issue for every leader and business owner.
