Happiness at work should be the rule, not the exception.
Alexander Kjerulf is one of the world’s leading experts on workplace happiness. Why? “You will spend more of your waking hours at work than anything else. If that time doesn’t make you happy, it’s a huge waste of life.” It all makes sense when he puts it that way, doesn’t it?
“You make a difference for every person you come into contact with at work” and vice versa. In a world where work consumes so much of our time and energy, why do we still limit ourselves? His energy and enthusiasm with sharing happiness at work is contagious and, more importantly, effective. Secret tip? “Want to have better and more effective meetings? Get rid of the tables in your meeting room. It’s weird but it works.”
Perhaps by now you’re thinking this is some sort of hippie doo-dah. But alas, my skeptics, this is the real deal. Alexander didn’t become the leading expert on workplace happiness without a reason. He is a speaker, consultant, and author. Alexander’s blog The Chief Happiness Officer is one of the world’s leading blogs about careers and leadership and is read by millions of people. On the business side, he presents and conducts workshops on workplace happiness at businesses and conferences all over the world including leading organizatons like IBM, Hilton, LEGO, HP, IKEA and many others. Alex has a masters degree in computer science from The University of Southern Denmark, and is the founder of Woohoo Inc., a consultancy firm offering lectures, workshops, and leadership training with focus on happiness at work.
