The question is: How do we approach the age gap when it comes to happiness at work? With currently 4 generations in the workplace, this is a challenge that most leaders face.
Mal Fletcher, author and business leadership expert says that ‘building a better future will depend on our ability to appreciate generational differences’.
When we first started working Happiness in companies, we quickly understood that training managers on ‘leading for happiness’ wasn’t going to be enough. Through numerous meetings with HR departments we quickly mapped out one root cause for workplace unhappiness: the employees themselves.
We need to stop saying that Happiness is a trendy topic. Because it is only a positive branding for the mental health battle. A much needed one.
Happiness was never schooled. Nor emotion management. Nor mindfulness. Nor empathy. Nor resilience. Nor positive psychology. Nor self love. Nor living in community. Nor the power of vulnerability. The list goes on.
