Wellbeing at workplace
Why wellbeing at workplace?
At Happiness Academy, we believe that wellbeing, happiness and satisfaction at work should be on the list of top-priorities of all organisations.
Purpose in what we do, engagement in everyday work tasks and projects, member and employees of the team or organisation fulfilling their own potential and having opportunity to leverage own strengths in a meaningful way,
Happiness at Work should be a top priority for all companies. It is good for employees: when they are happy at work, it supports the overall balance and feeling of purpose in life, as well as impacts health positively.
Both science and successful business examples support the idea that happy employees have a huge advantage over unhappy ones. They are more productive, flexible, resilient, healthier, creative, more motivated, involved, cooperative and make happier customers and work better with their colleagues.
So let’s put wellbeing and happiness at work in the focus of the way we do business.
We do not mean to say that it should be the only focus of the organisation, not at all – but it should be an integrated part of the organisations’ vision, going hand in hand with purpose and business goals.
Wellbeing at work is a shared responsibility. It is something that companies and organisations need to be aware off, but also something that each individual needs to create for themselves – by learning, understanding and applying the tools and the principles.
One of the way of doing that is using positive psychology to leverage science-based interventions and framework to support individuals and organisations in flourishing.
Wellbeing at work is about meaningful work, engagement, healthy relationships, personal development, leveraging and developing own strengths, and having fun.
Such a workplace is rich in appreciation, positive feedback, open communication, positive challenges, trust and feeling safe, meaningful results and personal responsibilities.

Most popular workshop topics
While we prefer to work in a way that is tailor-made and customized according to your needs and goals, these are some of the most common topics that our clients proved to be interested in:
Positive Psychology at Workplace – Wellbeing, and Satisfaction at Work
The science of positive psychology gives us an abundance of tools to strengthen wellbeing and satisfaction at work with a clear link to performance, resilience, results, and motivation. The workshop topic revolves around an evidence-based framework of 12 pillars of wellbeing to gain a broad understanding of all factors that, according to positive psychology research, impact our wellbeing and satisfaction at work. The same framework is leveraged to understand which of those factors are most relevant for everyone, making the learning highly customized and adapted to individual needs.
Mindset and Thinking Patterns
Absolutely everything in our work and life is a consequence of our thinking. Working with mindset means strengthening the “growth” mindset which makes one better at learning, and optimism. This is directly related to better results, performance, and wellbeing. Working with thinking patterns means taking ownership and control of own experiences and results as well as having more power and tools to deal with any challenges or gain more clarity and perspective on new situations. As with other workshops, working on mindset is based on simple, practical, straightforward, and research-based tools and techniques.
The Art of Resilience -Thriving in The Face of Challenge
Resilience is all about facing challenges in an optimal way: feeling confident and with a clear mind when facing difficulties, but also achieving optimal results. The skill of resilience benefits us both with positive challenges such as high goals or intense periods of change, and negative challenges such as problems and stress. It is a highly trainable skill and one that positively impacts all aspects of our life and work.
Flow and Engagement
The state of flow is a state of being highly immersed and engaged in an activity. It is strongly related to high performance, as well as the feeling of meaning at work, motivation to tackle challenges, and development of own skills. Flow is considered a key tool of high performers, as well as an effective way of skill mastery. The science of positive psychology dissected this elusive state into very clear elements that can now be used to successfully train flow, get better at, and use for own results, learning, and motivation. Working on flow skyrockets individual results, and at the same time is highly motivational and a key to engagement.
Strengths: Discovering and Developing the Best Version of Oneself
Leveraging personal strengths is strongly related to performance, resilience, wellbeing, and a sense of meaning. It builds one’s confidence, clarity of own abilities, strengthens motivation, and improves results. To leverage own strengths, the first step is using evidence-based tools to discover them – and then make a tangible plan of how to use them more in everyday work. The effect gets multiplied by leveraging the power of the team: by exploring personal strengths together, teams get empowered, motivated and boost their collaboration and teamwork.
Communication and Presentation Skills with The Foundation in Positive Psychology
Developing individual communication and presentation skills has a high positive impact on the results of that individual, but equally so on the team whose communication improves. Building on the research-based tools, principles, and techniques of the science of positive psychology makes the development of these skills tangible and effective and puts them in the service of individual and organizational wellbeing, resilience, and performance.
