Happiness is often misunderstood as the presence of positive emotions and the absence of negative ones.
Happiness is more than developing positive emotions. It also includes two other parts.
Employers need to ensure workers can do engaging, meaningful and purpose-driven work to help achieve effectiveness and productivity.
People bring three dimensions to the job market: Physical, cognitive and emotional. Machines can take over both the physical and cognitive dimension. It is only in the emotional domain where humans still reign.
With increasingly more automated jobs, humans can still add value around creativity, relationships and self-fulfilment.
EI consists of four domains: self-awareness, social-awareness, self-management, and relationship-management.
Two daily exercises can help create foundational habits for EI.
Meditation and developing SMART (Specific, Measurable, Ambitious, Relevant and Timely) goals, a mission statement and a personal vision statement can also help to strengthen your EI.
