Our definition is “a mindset which enables action to maximize performance and achieve potential”, so it’s a simple yet practical definition which applies to an individual, a team or an organization. But the key focus here is this mindset: approaching something in a positive manner is more likely to get results than doing the opposite.
At iOpener, Happiness at Work is based on a researched-based and practitioner-driven model. The Performance-Happiness Model is made up of 5 important components, which we know as the 5Cs. They are:
These are all interlocked, working as an ecosystem which means that they have a strong impact on each other. Trust and Pride in an organization and Recognition back from it help form the context in which the 5Cs are operationalized. And, to be happy at work, an individual must have a sense of achieving their potential, which is why it lies at the heart of the model.
What leaders need to understand is how to create that context of pride, trust and recognition, then it’s more likely that their team members will be able to deliver on the 5Cs.
You can do more about your Happiness at Work than you probably realize right now. Once you’ve taken the assessment, your report will show you how the various elements of Happiness at Work fit together and what you can do to improve each one of them. One of the ways is by giving you self-coaching questions.
And, our i360 feedback tool and report dive deeper into leadership competencies that enable happiness. It empowers individuals to leverage their behaviors that are already encouraging workplace happiness. And to work on other behaviors that can further increase performance-happiness.
By aggregating individuals’ Happiness at Work scores, you can see how your team is faring. Once you have this information, it provides an opportunity to have a guided conversation about the things that matter to team happiness and performance. And to make a collective, positive shift happen
Your organizational happiness at work assessment is a measure of your happiness culture. And it enables you to identify and compare the happiness hotspots and challenge areas in your organization.
