Treat people not as you want to be treated …but as they want to be treated.

Today, I am discussing with Henry Stewart, the Founder and Chief Happiness Officer of Happy Ltd. He is also the author of two books Relax: A Happy Business Story and the Happy Manifesto. He helps people create happy workplaces!

In our conversation, Henry explains how he started Happy Computers after a disastrous job experience and why he decided to create a principled organisation where people are happy.

Henry believes that we should find joy in our work 80% of the time and shares the key elements to become happy at work and in life. He believes that making mistakes is a key ingredient of resilience and why you should never try to fit in. I am sure you will be energised by this fun and insightful conversation. 

Key points discussed 

  • How to choose an organisation where you are likely to be happy
  • Why the easiest way to be happy is to help other people
  • Why making mistakes is a key ingredient of resilience
  • How his childhood has shaped his worldview
  • Why you should treat people the way they want to be treated not as you want to be treated.
  • His vision to see happy workplace becomes the norm, not the exception.

Now let’s listen to my conversation with Henry Stewart to learn much more
