How to Create Happiness in the Work Environment to Increase Productivity


What if you could make sure that the environment that you create in your workplace is completely positive, and it makes employees reach their maximum potential?


A lot goes into your business being at its absolute best. Resources, ideas, plans, strategies, networking skills and most importantly, an excellent team to execute all this.

Now the question- what qualities should be in the people that you have hired to make them into a good team?
There is skill, qualification, commitment, responsibility and drive all come to mind. But one aspect that most of us overlook, is that team members must be happy.

We all function at our best when we are happiest. There is more to work than just robotically finishing tasks. If we enjoy what we do, we create at our full potential and maximize productivity.
Take a minute to imagine- the people that you have hired based on their amazing skills and capabilities performing even better!

Being a leader and having seniority over others makes us responsible to ensure that the company receives the best, here are a few way we can do that:

  1. Ask Questions and Identify Interests and Strengths
Ask the team members relevant questions to understand their potential and inclination.
Find out the kind of work they are suited for and inclined towards, and their performance will increase drastically.
This will require you to spend one-on-one time with employees and understand them on a personal level.

2. Identify ‘Showing’ areas and ‘Growing’ areas
   When someone makes a mistake in the workplace, what is the first thing that bosses do? They yell and shout, and use negative motivation. If you deal with mistakes in this manner, the employee does not understand what went wrong. Take some time out, and explain what went wrong, ask their awareness on how they can improve on it and give them suggestions, not answers. Help them find a path and tools to navigate the situation in a better manner- don’t tell them they ‘can’t’ do it, tell them this is somewhere they can ‘grow’.       

Similarly, identify areas that are the strong areas of the employee and encourage them. Just like they should know what has gone wrong, they should also know what they have done right- this will result in repetition and expansion of the desired behavior.

3. Share Your Experiences
One of your roles as a leader is sharing your experiences, which is the path you took, the decisions you made and the conclusions you came to. It is not about controlling their path and their decisions; it’s about giving them the space to expand upon what they know so that they can make their own decisions and choose what is best for them personally. 

As a result, you have a healthier, more optimistic and more centered team.
Ask yourself then- What if you and your team could create the happiest business on this planet that generates more money that you can imagine?

Unlearn to be yourself!


The basis, or the ground on which you build your life, is the quality of communication that you have with yourself and others. The way you understand your communication pattern is by asking yourself the following questions:
In your intimate communication, how do you behave with yourself? Are you caring (respectful), honest, lucid and encouraging? Or do you judge, do you lower yourself and always see what needs to be done better?
In your communication with others (people other than your own self), how do you position yourself? When you are talking with others- is your agenda to be right, or to truly listen? Do you impose your vision on others, or are you open to others’ visions?

Conflicts arise when we don’t understand where the other person is coming from. You don’t understand, and they don’t either. Where does that leave your conversation? In a stagnant, unproductive place.
It is also possible, that you might listen (without the goal of ‘winning’ the argument), and find something of substance in what they are conveying to you. This will make you better in whatever subject that is the topic of discussion.
And then, when you show that you genuinely are interested to know the other person’s point of view, the person with whom you communicate might ponder as well over your views. In the end, joining the most enticing aspects of both your points of views, you have an engaging  and genuine discussion.

Similarly, in conflicts that are internal, do we truly accept and consider all the opinions we might have? In two paths that are in front of us, do we acknowledge and understand both paths? If we do, that will lead us to take the path that is best for us at that moment.

These are some of the things we can create by truly listening and communicating effectively:
– More fun to communicate
– Less conflicts
– Rewarding discussions
– Elimination of conflicts
– Problem solving
– Easier speaking in public
– Ease in professional and personal relationships
And so much more!

What is the easiest way to get back to you – when you lose yourself?
by Kass Thomas

There are always moments – which could last seconds, hours, days, weeks – where we suddenly realize: this is not me. When we enter a space where we are aware that something is wrong, something that makes you react in a way that is different from how you want to behave, there is a process we undergo, consciously or subconsciously, that lets us get back to our true selves.

We need to be aware of how we get back to who we truly are in order to understand ourselves better. What makes us refocus, recentre and return to our mind, body and being?

  1. Identification: Am I not being myself? What is the situation I am in- is it causing me stress?

  1. Accountability: What are the emotions that are blocking me from being myself? What are the actions that have made me realize this?Are these actions the result of these undesirable emotions?

  1. Choosing the Right Path: How do I get back to me? What are the activities and actions that will allow me find my path back to who I really am?

In order to run through my experience with this, here is my journey on how I get back to myself.

  1. Identification: It is easy for me to recognize when I am not being myself. How, you ask?
    To know when you are away from you, you need to first be completely aware of yourself as a person. What is your most recurring emotion? How do you react in a pressurised situation? How do you react in a favourable situation? Once you have answered questions like these, it will be easy to identify when you are not being your true self.
    At times when I feel unnecessarily cranky, nervous, irritable or I simply take myself too seriously, I realize- this is not me. This is not how I choose to react, and so I will change this.

  1. Accountability: We all have a certain set of emotions that we revolve around- for me, it is happy, free-flowing, laughter (humour) and energy. As soon as you identify emotions that you don’t normally feel, you have a feeling that something is wrong. Emotions give way to undesirable actions, and sometimes you might even shock yourself that you are behaving a certain way. Backtrack, and identify the actions, and find out the source of the actions- which are emotions. If I find myself angry, irritable, befuddled or discombobulated, I immediately STOP, and I ask myself- What is wrong? Why am I behaving this way? How do I get back to me, and what will make me calm down enough to enter my own space again?

  1. Choosing the Right Path: We all have different ways to refocus, recentre and return to ourselves. The place we want to reach is a completely calm, focussed and relaxed space. How we get there, is up to us.
What calms you down? What are the actions that make you feel close to yourself?
It could be reading, singing, dancing or even taking a nap!

Something that helps me feel close to myself is merely stopping to observe the simplicity and ease of my surroundings. I could connect with a tree, the sea, the sky or even an animal.
Then, if I connect with a tree, I might focus on its leaves, the softness with which they move with the breeze, or the flower beside it, so effortless in its simplicity, yet so wholesome with the complexity of its functions and structure. 

I might watch a cat, gracefully striding and suddenly stopping, watching with its sharp eyes, taking in its surrounding and truly registering it. I connect with the cat, and for a moment, take in the surroundings through its eyes, through its focus and objectivity.

Find your rhythm, find your path. Remember to always get back to you, because you are the best space for yourself.

Qual è il modo più facile per tornare a te – quando perdi te stesso?
di Kass Thomas

Ci sono sempre momenti – che potrebbero durare secondi, ore, giorni, settimane – dove all’improvviso realizziamo: questa non sono io. Quando entriamo in uno spazio in cui siamo consapevoli che qualcosa è sbagliato, qualcosa che ti fa reagire in un modo diverso da come tu vuoi comportarti, c’è un processo che subiamo, consciamente o inconsciamente, che ci permette di tornare al nostro vero sé.

Abbiamo bisogno di essere consapevoli di come tornare a chi siamo veramente per capire meglio noi stessi. Che cosa ci fa focalizzare di nuovo, ri-centrare e tornare alla nostra mente, al corpo e all’Essere?


  1. Identificazione: Non sono me stesso? Qual è la situazione in cui sono che mi sta causando stress?

  1. Responsabilità: quali sono le emozioni che mi impediscono di essere me stesso? Quali sono le azioni che mi hanno fatto realizzare ciò? Queste azioni sono il risultato di queste emozioni indesiderabili?

  1. Scegliere la strada giusta: Come posso tornare da me? Quali sono le attività e le azioni che mi permetteranno di ritrovare il mio percorso verso chi sono veramente?

Per riportare la mia esperienza, ecco il modo in cui io torno a me stessa.


  1. Identificazione: è facile per me riconoscere quando non sono me stesso. “Come?” ti chiederai. 
Per sapere quando sei lontano da te, devi prima essere completamente consapevole di te stesso come persona. Qual è la tua emozione più ricorrente? Come reagisci quando sei sotto pressione? Come reagisci in una situazione favorevole? Una volta che avrai risposto a queste domande, sarà facile capire quando non sei il tuo vero sé. 
A volte, quando mi sento scontrosa, nervosa, irritabile senza motivo o semplicemente mi prendo troppo sul serio, mi rendo conto: questa non sono io. Questo non è il modo in cui scelgo di reagire, e quindi lo cambio.

  1. Responsabilità: Tutti noi abbiamo un certo tipo di emozioni che ci girano intorno – per me sono felicità, fluire liberamente, risate (umorismo) ed energia. Non appena identifichi emozioni che non senti normalmente, hai la sensazione che qualcosa non va. Le emozioni lasciano il posto a azioni indesiderabili, e a volte potresti perfino essere scioccato dal comportarti in un certo modo. Torna indietro,  identifica le azioni, e scopri la fonte delle azioni – che sono emozioni. Se mi scopro arrabbiata, irritabile, confusa o scombussolata, mi fermo immediatamente e mi chiedo: cosa c’è che non va? Perché mi sto comportando in questo modo? Come posso tornare da me e cosa mi farà calmare abbastanza da tornare di nuovo nel mio spazio?

  1. Scegli la strada giusta: tutti noi abbiamo modi diversi di rifocalizzarci, ri-centrarci e tornare a noi stessi. Il luogo che vogliamo raggiungere è uno spazio completamente calmo, focalizzato e rilassato. Come arrivarci sta a noi. Cosa ti calma? Quali sono le azioni che ti fanno sentire vicino a te stesso? Potrebbe essere leggere, cantare, ballare o anche fare un riposino!

Qualcosa che mi aiuta a sentirmi vicino a me è semplicemente fermarmi ad osservare la semplicità e la facilità di ciò che mi circonda. Potrei connettermi con un albero, il mare, il cielo o persino un animale.
Quindi, se mi collego con un albero, potrei concentrarmi sulle sue foglie, sulla delicatezza con cui si muovono con la brezza, o sul fiore lì accanto, così spontaneo nella sua semplicità, eppure così integrato con la complessità delle sue funzioni e la sua struttura.

Potrei guardare un gatto, che cammina aggraziato e poi si ferma all’improvviso, guardando con i suoi occhi acuti, osservando l’ambiente e recependolo davvero. Mi collego con il gatto e, per un momento, vedo l’ambiente attraverso i suoi occhi, attraverso la sua messa a fuoco e obiettività.


Trova il tuo ritmo, trova il tuo percorso. Ricordati di tornare sempre da te, perché sei lo spazio migliore per te stesso.

Quel est le moyen le plus simple de vous retrouver quand vous vous perdez ?
 par Kass Thomas
Il y a toujours moments- qui peuvent durer quelques secondes, heures, jours, semaines, où nous réalisons tout à coup : je ne suis pas moi. Lorsque nous entrons dans cet espace où nous sommes conscients que quelque chose ne va pas, que quelque chose nous fait réagir plus que nous aimerion. Il existe un processus que nous subissons, consciemment ou inconsciemment, qui nous permet de revenir à notre vrai moi.
Nous avons besoin d’être conscients de la façon dont nous retrouvons qui nous sommes vraiment afin de mieux nous comprendre. Qu’est-ce qui nous fait nous concentrer, recentrer et revenir à notre esprit, notre corps et notre être ?
  1. Identification : Est-ce que je ne suis pas moi-même ? Dans quelle situation suis-je qui me stresse ?
  2. Responsabilité : Quelles sont les émotions qui m’empêchent d’être moi-même ? Quelles sont les actions qui m’ont permis de m’en rendre compte ? Ces actions sont-elles le résultat de ces émotions indésirables ?
  3. Choisir le bon chemin : Comment puis-je revenir à moi ? Quelles sont les activités et les actions qui me permettront de retrouver le chemin vers qui je suis vraiment ?
Pour partager avec vous mon expérience avec ça, voici mon parcours sur comment je reviens vers moi-même.
    1. Identification : Il est facile pour moi de reconnaître quand je ne suis pas moi-même. Comment, vous demandez ?
    Pour savoir quand vous vous éloignez de vous, vous devez d’abord être complètement conscient de vous-même en tant que personne. Quelle est votre émotion la plus récurrente ? Comment réagissez-vous dans une situation qui vous met sous pression ? Comment réagissez-vous dans une situation qui vous est favorable ? Une fois que vous aurez répondu à des questions comme celles-ci, il vous sera facile de déterminer quand vous n’êtes pas vraiment vous.
    Parfois, lorsque je me sens inutilement grincheuse, nerveuse, irritable ou que je me prends trop au sérieux, je réalise que ce n’est pas moi. Ce n’est pas ainsi que j’ai choisi de réagir et je vais donc changer cela.
    1. Responsabilité : nous avons tous un certain ensemble d’émotions autour desquelles nous gravitons – pour moi, c’est la joie, la fluidité, le rire (humour) et l’énergie. Dès que vous identifiez des émotions que vous ne ressentez pas normalement, vous avez le sentiment que quelque chose ne va pas. Les émotions cèdent le pas à des actions indésirables, et parfois vous pourriez même être choqué de vous comporter d’une certaine manière. Revenez en arrière, identifiez les actions et identifiez la source de celles-ci, à savoir les émotions. Si je suis en colère, irritable, confuse ou déconcertée, je m’ARRÊTE immédiatement et je me demande: qu’est-ce qui ne va pas ? Pourquoi je me comporte de cette façon ? Comment puis-je retourner en moi et qu’est-ce qui me calmera suffisamment pour retourner dans mon propre espace ?
    2. Choisir le bon chemin : Nous avons tous différentes façons de nous concentrer, de nous recentrer et de revenir à nous-mêmes. L’endroit que nous voulons atteindre est un espace complètement calme, concentré et détendu. Comment y arriver, ça ne tient qu’à nous.
    Qu’est-ce qui vous calme ? Quelles sont les actions qui vous font vous sentir proche de vous ? Ce pourrait être lire, chanter, danser ou même faire une sieste !
Quelque chose qui m’aide à me sentir proche de moi est simplement de m’arrêter pour observer la simplicité et la facilité de mon environnement. Je peux me connecter avec un arbre, la mer, le ciel ou même un animal.
Ensuite, si je me connecte à un arbre, je peux me concentrer sur ses feuilles, la douceur avec laquelle elles se déplacent avec la brise, ou la fleur à côté, sans effort dans sa simplicité, mais tellement salutaire avec la complexité de ses fonctions et de sa structure.
Je peux regarder un chat marcher à grands pas et s’arrêter soudainement, regardant avec ses yeux perçants, pénétrant son environnement et l’enregistrant vraiment. Je me connecte avec le chat et, pendant un instant, j’observe l’environnement à travers ses yeux, sa perspicacité et son objectivité.
Trouvez votre rythme, votre chemin. Rappelez-vous de toujours revenir à vous, car vous êtes le meilleur espace pour vous-même.
