Be a Happy Leader

Create a motivated, positive, and hyper-productive team

The world of work and what humans expect from leaders and organizations has changed drastically. How an organization authentically prioritizes mental health and employee well-being are being considered when choosing to join or leave. Leaders are expected to be authentic, trusting, and caring. Our always-on culture and constant pressure for results make it easy for leaders to have chronic stress and feel overwhelmed. My question for you is…how happy and motivated are your team members right now?

A happy and inspirational leader is vital for team success. This powerful talk inspires leaders to prioritize their own well-being and create thriving teams by understanding positive psychology, neuroscience, and happiness at work research. When team member happiness is placed as a top priority, customers are loyal and the reputation of the company soars. Innovation and creativity expand when team members are happy while working. There are massive personal, organizational, and financial consequences if leaders do not focus well-being for themselves and for their teams.

A personal invitation from Tia Graham!
