A Touchy-Feely Guide To Productivity
How can you create a culture of positive thinking at your workplace? According to business advisor and consultant Paul David Walker, author of Unleashing Genius: Leading Yourself, Teams and Corporations, there are seven steps you can take to help your employees come to work with a can-do attitude and stay in the zone while on the job. "Studies have discovered that happiness and well-being are natural states of mind," says Walker. "All types of suffering are simply conditioned responses to our thoughts. Thoughts that we repeat to ourselves detract us from insight and our natural feelings of joy, love and gratitude." Negativity begets negativity, and keeping a positive attitude can help employees be more engaged in their jobs and more productive at work. Practicing these seven steps, Walker says, can cultivate happiness in your teams. Leaders can have a better effect on their staff and employees can approach work with a better attitude and contribute to a happier, healthier bottom line.
