Joy is the euphoric feeling we experience when our thoughts, feelings, and actions are in complete harmony with our purpose. When we live with purpose and passion and make work fun, we create zones of inspiration. When we are inspired, we are open to the strengths and potential greatness in others and Synergy is inevitable. As the power of communication and collaboration improves and fear subsides, employee relationships become more Synergistic, strengthening every facet of the business, creating profitable work environments.
If you’re not enjoying work the way you deserve to, if you’d like to feel more energized instead of drained, if instead of getting stuck in dances of distrust and competitiveness, you’d like to feel comfortable and affectionate with your colleagues, this book was written with you in mind.
In this book, Alexander includes a good mix of inspirational examples and step-by-step directions for creating joy in the workplace. Like most changes, achieving joy through Synergy means giving up some old ideas, unhealthy ways, and opening up and trying some new techniques and strategies. In this book, you will learn about managers and employees who have gained greater personal satisfaction and discovered how much fun it can be to get up and go to work everyday.
Joy in the Workplace features the importance of creating a happy and funfilled workplace and the reasons why successful companies such as Harley-Davidson, Southwest Airlines, Lennar Corporation, Ben & Jerry’s, Barratt American, and Fletcher Jones Mercedes Benz embrace the idea of taking care of employees. Alexander goes one-on-one with Senior Executives who believe in creating trusting relationships, removing fear from working environments, and empowering employees.
