In this hilarious and insightful speech, Rowan Manahan explains that happiness at work (in Danish: arbejdsglaede) is not a pipe dream but the best way to get your dream job, boost your career and become more successful.
Why don’t people pay a little more attention (and a whole lot more respect!) to their own happiness — and what happens when they do?
Rowan argues that this is the next evolutionary leap that mankind will make and has some simple, practical, and actionable steps that you can take to come out of the Dark Ages in your working life and into the Age of Enlightenment.
The speech is from our Arbejdsglaede Live! 2013 conference, held annually in Copenhagen Denmark in May.
