Programme Brief:

One of the biggest challenges facing businesses today is Uncertainty and Constant Change. Change and Uncertainty create discomfort and leads to low morale and engagement. People feel insecure and start working in silos. And companies with low engagement also find it more difficult to hire and retain the right talent.

The single greatest advantage in the modern economy is a happy and engaged workforce.

When Gallup’s global workplace report reveals that only 13% of employees are “actively engaged” at work (this figure is even lower for Singapore – only 9%!) and the vast majority of employees (63% worldwide and 76% in Singapore) are ‘not engaged’ i.e. they are not emotionally connected to their workplace and therefore are less likely to invest in organizational goals or outcomes. And engagement is a function of employee happiness. Companies need ‘The Happiness Advantage’. A decade of research proves that happiness raises nearly every business and educational outcome

  • 37% greater sales
  • 3X more creative
  • 31% more productive
  • 40% more likely to receive a promotion
  • 23% fewer fatigue symptoms

Applying the latest research-based techniques from the field of positive psychology; individuals learn the practices of resilient leaders, they become more positive and adaptable and develop a capacity to “see” more opportunities, leading to better results.
