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 Master the Art of Public Speaking

How to Master the Art of Public Speaking

The idea for this Weekly Happiness Challenge was sparked back in May when member Paul was planning to give a talk for the first time. He had recorded himself doing it, but was struggling to keep it within the time limits. He also wanted to find the right balance between reading and improvising. “Can anyone share any good […]

Agile’s answer to extremism and terrorism

Agile’s answer to extremism and terrorism

We are all, in part, to blame for the extremism that causes terrorism. Extremism most often happens to people without options. When we allow a generation to become hopeless, we make it easier for them to become vulnerable to false promises of a better life. Unemployment and underemployment combined with racism, isolation and hatred can lead to a […]

Four Ted Talks on ultimate bootstrapping and working with what you have

Four Ted Talks on ultimate bootstrapping and working with what you have

This month’s Weekly Happiness Challenge is about startup bootstrapping, making do with what you have, getting creative with limited resources. So this month’s TED Talk countdown offers you inspiration, not from startups that have coders doing guerrilla marketing, but how people with truly limited resources not only make do, they succeed. Hopefully it’ll remind you […]

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 […]
