2 Programs By This Presenter

Machine-learning algorithms may soon get to know us better than we know ourselves. It’s critical to recognize where technologies already consume our attentions to increase our wellbeing and happiness.

With pragmatic solutions combining economics, emerging technology, and positive psychology. John Havens provides a human-centric roadmap to help attendees embrace their present to better define the future.

Learning Outcomes of Mind the Gap:

  • How to better pursue purpose on the job and at home.
  • How practicing gratitude can lower stress and correlates to better physical, mental, and emotional health.
  • How altruism and random acts of kindness can be used as a tool to improve employee morale, wellbeing, and productivity.
  • How to live to your values and increase happiness, job satisfaction, and productivity.
  • It’s time we knew more about ourselves than the sensors in our devices.
  • The study of happiness is exploding — the United Nations has issues its first World Happiness Report, and countries all around the world like Bhutan, the UK, and China are issuing reports based on hundreds of thousands of interviews from people describing what makes them happy and why.

 These trends of studying well being — the science and economics of happiness — have entered the workforce. More and more research is proving that employees who are happy, who feel a sense of meaning and purpose at their work, are more productive and valuable for their employers. Based on his Mashable article (and upcoming book from Tarcher/Penguin), The Value of a Happiness Economy, John will teach you why the global trend of analyzing well being is so critical for employers to understand, and how they can utilize existing tools to measure and improve their employee’s happiness.
