UNIQUE ARTS CONFERENCE
HERE IS MY TALK AT THE UNIQUE ARTS CONFERENCE IN LA JOLLA. I HOPE YOU ENJOY IT.
This Guy is Happy at Work
This dumpster was just dropped off at my house so that the gardeners could cut down massive vines in order to reveal a beautiful wall beneath.
You have so much beauty beneath the surface. Let it shine.
The best part? As I was talking to the delivery man, I asked him if he was happy at work. He was quiet for a moment and then a giant smile spread across his face.
“We have started a team competition with walking. I am getting to know people inside my company.” He was happy. Work was fun.
When a company wants to build a great culture, it’s not all about the money. It’s actually the little things that make a difference.
I teach this to corporations and I have a feeling that his company (Marborg) is on its way to ‘getting it.’
Happy People – Happy Company
I shop at Whole Foods. I love that store. Wherever I go, I search for signs of happiness or unhappiness at work in the eyes of employees.
Why is it that the employees at Whole Foods seem so happy each time I come in, I wondered. Always helpful, never in a hurry. Consistency throughout the shopping process.
And then I saw it.
Signs on the wall.
AND a ping pong table in the employee break room, which was encased in glass so that shoppers could see that the employees were having a good time.
Now that’s a great cultural add! Good job Whole Foods. These are the sorts of things I teach to large corporations so that they keep their employees engaged and onboard.
