The Price of Business Digital Network has a new series of outstanding commentaries from thought leaders. This is one in that series.
Emotions are the driving force behind people’s behaviors, decisions, and habits; that means the quality of people’s interaction with themselves and with the outside world is affected by the kind of emotions they nurture. Thus, the more people nurture happiness-inducing feelings such as joy, satisfaction, and well-being the better is their involvement with the outside world; in such a condition they make optimal decisions, and exhibit good behaviors and habits. Promoting those happiness-inducing feelings in the workplace helps to create a conducive environment that empowers individuals to reach the peak of their performance, thus leading to better and more impactful organizations.
