Don’t worry (be happy)


Happy July! The sun is shining, the days are long and the smell of barbeques is in the air! It’s time to take a moment to relax and be happy. If you have any trouble doing this we’re sharing an article below with some great tips on what happy people do.

Speaking of happy, we’re pleased to announce that we’re partnering with David Ogle, the Founder of a successful North American coaching and leadership practice. Recently David delivered a workshop on “Leadership and Innovation” with one of our Vertical Bridge clients. The feedback was excellent and I was blown away by his delivery. It’s no surprise then that David led Lululemon’s Leadership Development team during their growth to a $2 billion company. Check out his full bio and please join us in welcoming David to Vertical Bridge .

Warm regards,

Here are seven habits of the happiest people, which will make the rest of us perpetually jealous if we don’t hop on the wagon and join them.

So much has been written about the burgeoning happiness movement within the ever-expanding field of positive psychology, it’s hard to keep up.

What scientists have discovered is that practices like compassion, gratitude, positive thinking, meditation, and kindness are not only good for your health and well-being, they’re especially good for business.

While we know that leaders are partly responsible for setting the right conditions for employee happiness, employees have to be held responsible for making wise choices to ensure their own happiness, no matter what curve balls life throws their way.

While combing through my own research and notes on what successful and happy people do, it struck me how intentional they are in working the happiness advantage, putting emphasis on choosing the right mindset and literally training their brains to become happier and more optimistic. It’s a lifelong commitment.
