Freedom To Be Happy

Freedom to be happy for all employees.  That is the mission of my guest on this episode.  Happiness in the workplace is not just a fluffy idea.  Happiness has a direct impact on the engagement of employees.

In this episode, Kevin Withane speaks with recently minted first-time author, Matthew Phelan about :

  • Why his early leadership heroes were John Barnes, Gary Lineker, and Paul Gascoigne (soccer players for those in America)
  • Leadership lessons learned from being an entrepreneur in his 20s; and
  • Why employee happiness is an indicator of things to come for businesses.

Matt is Co-CEO and Head of Global Happiness at the Happiness Index.  Matt is also the author of Freedom To Be Happy: The Business Case for Happiness.  You can get your copy from Amazon
