Happy Working Resource Hub

Happiness at Work Matters. When we achieve greater job satisfaction it has a huge impact on the productivity of our workers. The Happy Melly Business Network brings together videos, podcast, blogs, work life balance tips, and other valuable resources for entrepreneurs, managers and individuals who want to inspire happiness in their organization. So hopefully “I love my job” will become the new normal.

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 make the Delegation Board work for your team

How to make the Delegation Board work for your team

Thanks to Jurgen Appelo, author of Management 3.0 and Managing for Happiness, I learnt the technique Delegation Board. With Key Decision Areas on the Vertical and the seven levels of delegation on the horizontal axis, to me it serves as a visible, transparent matrix structure agreement between people.

Stop inviting. Sell your meeting!

Stop inviting. Sell your meeting!

“My dear friends, we are together today in honor and to celebrate the memory of Loïc, who left us too young due to a crisis of meeting.” Such could have been my funeral oration. I’d learned as a quality manager that a meeting should be prepared. I used the 7Ps Framework designed by James Macanufo in […]

Learning from non-experts: A Learning 3.0 Challenge

Learning from non-experts: A Learning 3.0 Challenge

The amount of times I’ve caught myself asking for business advice in the pub is pretty disturbing.

However, in twenty-first century market dynamics, there is no way anymore […]

Supercharge your learning with mindfulness

Supercharge your learning with mindfulness

How can we turn the lessons learned from tyranny of the classroom into an adult learning experience? I was a bit of a swot [British for smartypants] at school, but for me understanding the detail of subjects was often quite hard work. I got the concepts easily, but the retention aspect was difficult. The subjects I […]
