Happy Working Resource Hub

Happy Melly is a collection of people hands-on resources to help you learn how to be happy at work and to empower you to help others achieve job satisfaction.  The Happy Melly blog is where our Funders, Supporters and an occasional guest sound off on this topic. It’s filled with work-life balance tips, small business resources, how to motivate employees and find out what makes people happy, and how social entrepreneurship is allowing people finally to say “I Love My Job!” 

How to learn how to play at work

How to learn how to play at work

The School of Play’s Founder Portia Tung started her talk at the AgiNext Meetup by getting us up singing and acting out the infamous “Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes.” Yes, this was a room full of adults. Not only was Portia trying to wake us up after a long day, she was doing the absurd […]

Want to be mindful? Try being negative more often

Want to be mindful? Try being negative more often

I thought this month, as we focus on mindfulness and nurturing your EQ, I — the creator of Social Media Positivity Week — would talk about something more negative. I wouldn’t say I’m a pessimist nor an optimist. I’m somewhere between a realist and a get-the-f-over-it. Lots of supposedly bad shit has happened to me in life, […]

Four TED Talks on mindfulness and just taking a step back

Four TED Talks on mindfulness and just taking a step back

This month we’re taking a step back from our Weekly Happiness Challenges. No, we aren’t not doing them, we’re just instead purposely taking a step back for reflection, relaxation, and thoughtfulness. We’re focusing on how to be mindful at work and in other areas of our lives. We’re focusing on things that don’t necessarily increase […]

Why Management 3.0 fails

Why Management 3.0 fails

I could really call this why any management workshop or leadership course fails. I’m a known hater of the MBA as a useless, overly expensive piece of paper and statement of confidence a la what the Wizard handed the Lion. But I’d be remiss to not apply that same judgment to the Management 3.0 branding and messaging […]

Five TED Talks that look toward the future of management

Five TED Talks that look toward the future of management

This month our Weekly Happiness Challenges are dedicated to the future of management. Led by about a dozen of the many Management 3.0 facilitators, we are focusing on how to go past what’s considered the norm and to empower teams with motivation toward innovation. Only when we transcend normal management myths can we then find new ways of […]

Want to own the future of management?

Want to own the future of management?

The month of April will be filled with happiness challenges from one of the Happy Melly brands Management 3.0. About a dozen of the more than 200 facilitators are writing blogposts and setting up and leading our community in challenges and experiments, all surrounding topics of leadership and management. But before that week begins, we actually […]

Five TED Talks that support a lifetime of learning

Five TED Talks that support a lifetime of learning

They say March comes in like a lion and out like a lamb. (Unless you’re in the southern half of the world, when that’s your September.) But what better time than Spring (or Autumn) to kick off a season of learning? This month’s Weekly Happiness Challenges are led by Learning 3.0, one of the Happy Melly […]

Four TED Talks take four more steps to happiness

Four TED Talks take four more steps to happiness

In this month’s Weekly Happiness Challenges, we are continuing to count down Jurgen Appelo’s 12 Ways to Happiness. Each week, we are zeroing in on a different, small way to do a whole lot of good, at your work, at your home, and for your life in general. Happiness is often found when you make […]

Learning to take a step back from work

Learning to take a step back from work

Some that may read this (like, ahem, my husband) may find this quite hypocritical. I love my job, but I’m not very good at taking a step back. That’s become glaringly apparent as I’m well into my third trimester of my rather complicated first pregnancy. Soon, I’ll have to take a step back from work […]
