The world has been engaging with social media for decades now. And it seems like, no matter the platform, somehow these apps tend to bring out the worst in people.
A few years ago, Stephanie Harrison tried to change that. She launched a social media channel that didn’t delve into politics, didn’t share mean-spirited memes or spread misinformation. It was a channel based on an incredibly simple question: Can you make an impact on social media, just by trying to make people happy? It turns out, the answer is yes.
We sit down with Harrison, who has since become a renowned author, speaker, consultant, well-being expert, and founder of “The New Happy,” to discuss how business leaders, employers, and employees can embrace a new version of happiness in their working lives.
What leads to a happy life? What are the various ways to be happy? Happiness means different things to each of us, yet after doing extensive research, Management 3.0 founder, Jurgen Appelo, discovered a common thread: Happiness is something we create, it is not something to achieve. It is a path you choose, not a destination to arrive at. So many of us spend our time in pursuit of happiness, yet instead of searching for it we need to find ways to live it, embrace it and implement it into our daily lives. We created the 12 Steps to Happiness - you can find more information and even download a free poster of the 12 steps at management30.com/practice
