“Having an Open Door Policy was the biggest mistake I ever made as a manager. Stop it now.”


Cy Wakeman is the founder of Reality-Based Leadership. She says that people spend about 2,5 hours every day on drama oriented behaviour (1/3 of a working day): venting, complaining, judging gossiping, etc. It isn’t helpful for results and relations, for happiness at work. So this kind of behaviour doesn’t add to flourishing people and flourishing organisations. And it certainly doesn’t add to psychological safety the base of happy organisations and positive working cultures. So what can you do as a leader to stop this behaviour and led people to take ownership, responsibility and being accountable? Cy Wakeman explains it in this interview.


Former nuclear submarine Commander, author of the Amazon #1 Best Seller: Turn the Ship Around, L. David Marquet imagines a workplace where everyone engages and contributes their full intellectual capacity, a place where people are healthier and happier because they have more control over their work–a place where everyone is a leader. After being assigned to command the nuclear-powered submarine USS Santa Fe–then ranked last in retention and operational standing–he realized the traditional leadership approach of “take control, give orders,” wouldn’t work. He “turned the ship around” by treating the crew as leaders, not followers, and giving control, not taking control.

“One of the things that limit our learning is our belief that we already know something”

“With lots of happy thriving humans, the world would be a better place”


As a kid, Dr. Jenny Brockis loved the Just So story ‘How The Elephant Got His Trunk’. Like the elephant, Jenny was insatiably curious about the world. She wanted to know how things worked, why things were ‘Just So.’ Her curiosity led her to develop a sense of awe and wonder about the human body. Her vision is to empower everyone to be a happy, thriving human. Jenny has presented to and worked with thousands of people to empower them to cultivate a thriving mind, what it takes to stay well and think smart. Seeing the spark of insight in someone’s face when they ‘get’ what they can do for themselves, is what gets her out of bed in the morning. While knowledge is power, knowing how to apply that knowledge is the gold. And that gold you’ll find in Jenny’s newest book: Thriving Mind.


Dan Diamond has worked under extreme circumstances. He led the Medical Team in New Orleans after Hurricane Katrina and in Haiti after the 2010 earthquake. He noticed that people show different kinds of behaviours in stressful situations. Some act as victims, others like manipulators or bystanders. And there is a group that acts as a so-called ‘leaders’. When you take his theory and translate it to happiness at work, you can see that the behavior, or mindset, of the leader, makes you the happiest. These mindsets are not meant to label others, but ‘for internal consumption only’. We all show all four behaviours during the day. In this interview we discuss the four and what you can do to change, how you can help others to take ownership for results, relationships, and happiness at work.

“People perform best when they believe they have the power to make a difference and a conviction to put other people first”

“Two interactive learning feedback loops are important ’Feeling Fast’ and ‘Thinking Slow’ “


Nic Marks is a statistician with a slightly unusual specialty – happiness. For the last three decades, he has been creating measures of people’s quality of life – with an increasing emphasis on their emotional experience and happiness. His strong proposition is that by measuring people’s happiness, it kick-starts a process that builds happiness. With his business Friday which tracks employee happiness, he is helping businesses build a positive productive work culture. Friday clients who have increased their weekly happiness scores have seen 7% increases in productivity and 17% falls in staff turnover. If you want to discover how this is possible, come and listen to his story during the Global Online Happiness at Work Summit!

How important is trust to creating a happy work culture? According to Jennifer Moss - member of the UN Global Happiness Council, frequent writer for Harvard Business Review and SHRM, and bestselling author of “Unlocking Happiness at Work” – “everything flows through trust”. From effectively managing stress and staving off burnout, to inspiring innovation, to enabling a team to thrive in a time of extreme change, the essential role that trust plays cannot be overstated. Thankfully, there are some simple yet effective ways leaders and employees can boost trust at work. In this interview, we discuss some of these impactful ideas and offer guidance on where to start.
