Is happiness a science? Is it the holy grail? What does it really mean and include… What should, and can, we hope for to give ourselves and those around us a happier future?
Today, it is a great pleasure to speak to Julie Schladitz, business and career coach, international HR consultant who previously worked for Gucci, INSEAD and International Olympic Comittee. We are going to be discussing happiness – the holy grail for so many of us…
We will be discussing:
- The holy grail – a misnomer? Clarity on what happiness really is scientifically as well as our general non-specific idea of it – and how this impacts us both mentally and physically.
- Whether happiness equates to wellbeing, the differences and how to combine for best effect.
- Pursuing happiness at all costs – is this the ideal or is there a more balanced and realistic objective to aim for.
- How we can apply all this positively to our career, particularly in view of the changes brought about by the pandemic, when so many of us are reassessing our lives (and jobs).
- What companies can take on board and in what way – how much is our own responsibility.
- Creating our own checklist to have a better vision and reactions…
