The 3 Pillars guaranteeing a successful year!!!
Welcome to a new financial year.
We all feel the pressures and stress of finishing a financial year and bouncing forward into a new financial year yet with an all time high of workers being unhappy in their current job, and an all time high rates of depression, the pressures continue to increase.
45% of workers are currently unhappy in their jobs
Depression rates today are 10X greater as what they were in the great depression
The mean on-set age of depression 35years ago was 29yo, today it’s 14 years old
Coming into the new financial year we need answers to address this, so I’ve developed 3 pillars that will help you and your teams to bounce forward to create the new financial year you want.
Pillar 1: Leveraging Positivity that fuels success
All the latest research and studies show that when we are positive, this fuels greater productivity, performance and optimum levels. We also have less sick days, become depressed or even quit.
Recent research shows that Positive sales people out perform their peers by 56%
Coal miners that are positive show 45% greater productivity and performance
Happy Doctors perform better diagnosis then unhappy doctors by up to 50%
If we are not priming out employees to think positive and raise their levels of happiness, we are handicapping them in regards to their performance, productivity and results by up to 50%
Pillar 2: Altruism ignites high performance
When we perform good deeds, we experience a myriad of physiological benefits from feeling more calm and peaceful, to overcoming depression, to better recovery from heart attacks and even increased longevity.
When we started a foundation recently helping the true poorest of the poor which are the children living with a disability, we had no idea how much we would get out of helping others. Recently helping a 14yo kids that has no schooling because he was born with a physical disability, but now helping him with a wheelchair and seeing him wheel to school makes me feel awesome!
A necessity in our workplaces is cultivating altruistic acts within out teams. Shouting someone for lunch, encouraging voluntarism or just donating money to a charity.
Pillar 3: Creating collaborative environments
Workplace communication and collaboration is important for growth & results. When we provide inclusive environments to allow for open communication channels, we empower our teams to bounce forward into the new financial year.
While many fortune 500 companies where laying off and going through massive changes at the start of the Global Financial Meltdown, PepsiCo CEO Indra Nooyi decided to do something different. She travelled around the world boosting her employee’s morale and encouraging them to see the good in every bad situation. This action had a profound impact on the company and also her as a leader. In fact Fortune Magazine named her the most powerful woman in the world in 2009.
Creating collaborative environments and opening the lines of communication within our teams is the secret recipe for bouncing forward into the new financial year.
So to recap, the 3 Pillars to help you and your team to bouncing into the new financial year are: Leveraging Positivity that fuels success: Altruism Ignites High Performance & Creating Collaborative Environments
I hope you have a sensational start to your new financial year!!!
