Welcome to the first episode of the 21st Century Work Life podcast, a show created to look at how the world of work,and our attitudes to work are changing.
In this first episode, I reflect on how much how we talk about work has changed - we are now ok with placing the words "happiness" and "work" in the same sentence!
I also share with you Mark Trezona's thoughts and some tips on how we can move towards Happiness at Work. (Mark has made this subject his mission and he now delivers a Happiness at Work newsletter weekly.)
For the second part of the episode I have virtual coffee with Lisette Sutherland. I met Lisette on the Internet, when she interviewed me for her site (and now podcast!) Collaboration Superpowers. Lisette will be making an appearance in this podcast every other week and in today's episode she shares her tips on how to create the best Work Holiday. Yes, you heard right.
02:50 Changes in attitude to work - talking about happiness at work. What does happiness at work mean?
11.15 I read Mark Trezona's view on happiness at work and Martin Seligman's PERMA principles.
