Every organization, every leader, and every employee has an identifiable strength: something they can do or create or contribute that separates them from all others in their field. Businesses and organizations that embrace this concept are more likely to create harmonious, happy and productive teams that complement each other and thrive. And, as we’ll hear today, they can have some fun in the process.

We sit down with Ryan Berhman, owner of Systemic Agility, a training and consulting organisation, and owner, facilitator and trainer with StrongSuits, a systemic team and organisational strengths development tool, based on insights from modern psychology. His discusses his experience working with hundreds of managers, coaches and teams to collaborate, innovate, and work more effectively and joyfully together. He also shares how his newest venture takes the phrase “play to your strengths” to a whole new level.

Ah, technology. The double-edged sword of the working world. Cell phones and email have made the world smaller, connecting employers and employees, businesses and customers, and allowing a generation of workers to find opportunities and even launch businesses from anywhere in the world. But they’ve also blurred the lines between the office and home. A study conducted during the pandemic found that 70 percent of remote workers were clocking in on the weekends. And after-hours emails have become such a problem, that some cities have attempted to make them illegal.

Today we talk with Dustin DeVries, co-founder of Caffeine Interactive Technologies, a web mobile development agency with a remote team featuring professionals from across the globe. He discusses his attempts to push back, evening the scales of the work-life balance for himself, and his team.

Culture has been a buzzword in the business world for decades now. And, in many instances, that’s all it was: an empty word. But in recent years, as competition for quality employees has increased, workplace culture is no longer an afterthought. For companies who take it seriously, it can be both a recruiting tool, and a competitive advantage. And it has the added benefit of bringing just a little more happiness into the world.

Today we sit down with master coach and Delivering Happiness Culture Chief Sunny Grosso, who has spent years helping companies across the globe build and grow strong, distinct workplace cultures. We discuss what she’s learned in her work, and her recommendations for business leaders hoping to move past the buzzwords, and get down to the business of making people happy at work.

A good story can change an opinion, can change a vote… it can change the way we see the world and our place in it. But stories also play a powerful role in our working lives. Businesses and organizations can rise or fall based on the stories they tell their employees, their customers, their partners, and the public. Leaders who value storytelling – who eschew boring, artificial corporate jargon in favor of active, intentional, engaging communication – can do more than just hold an entertaining meeting. They can close deals, inspire teams, and transform their organizations in powerful, lasting ways.

Don’t believe us? That’s OK. Because today we sit down with Francisco Mahfuz, a national champion public speaker and one of the most sought-after storytellers and organizational coaches you can find anywhere in the world. And he can be pretty convincing. Learn more about Francisco here: https://www.franciscomahfuz.com/

At home and in the workplace, happiness can be a balancing act. Our health, family, and finances can often prevent us from focusing on our own enjoyment. But what happens when we make a habit of that? What happens when we start letting other, smaller things take precedence over our happiness? Things like fear, comfortability, self-image, or other people’s perceptions of us. What happens when we’re so afraid to rock the boat, that we never even get in?

Today we sit down with motivational speaker, TV personality and best-selling author Shari Alyse, who spent time struggling with that balancing act, and losing sight of her own happiness. She shares what she’s learned about joy, self-discovery, and just how fun it can be, to rock the occasional boat.

**Have you ever pondered about the following questions?**

  • How do we give people and their happiness the attention they deserve in our organizations and transformations?
  • How do we enable change for people and not push change on people?
  • How do we create the culture and environment we need for people to express themselves?
  • How do we move forward and not get stuck in bureaucratic change management?
