What is Delivering Happiness?
First, there was a book…
In 2010, Zappos CEO Tony Hsieh’s first book, Delivering Happiness, A Path to Profits, Passion, and Purpose blasted to the top of bestseller lists with its blend of business advice, tales of worm farms, raves, multi-million dollar deals and – above all – the belief that creating a culture of happiness can be used as a model both in business, and in life.
And WOW… did people respond! From Seoul to Lithuania, Sacramento to Sao Paulo, we heard an outpour of positivity from people inspired to make a change – big or small – towards happiness. So much to the point we couldn’t help but believe that happiness is on the tipping point of world transformation.
Then there was a bus tour…
A few months after the book launch, the team drove a big blue bus cross-country to talk to folks inspired by Delivering Happiness and hear firsthand how people were making happiness a priority in their own lives. Watching this community of enthusiastic happiness-seekers and culture enthusiasts come together, we knew we had to figure out a way to collect that energy and so the happiness could keep flowing.
Now, a company with a cause…
Today we’re a culture coachsulting [hybrid coaching + consulting] company with a cause – to inspire passion + purpose in workplaces for a happier world.
Why does it matter?
It’s a universal belief most people just want to be happy in their lives. Yet the research shows we’re really bad at predicting the things that actually make us happy. (How’s that for Irony-with-a-capital-I?)
Backed by twenty years of research within the science of happiness and positive psychology, we’ve learned that there are actually tangible ways to increase the happiness in our lives. We’ve also discovered that happiness is really good for business, increasing every positive business outcome including 300% more innovation [HBR], 37% increase in sales [Martin Seligman], and 31% increase in productivity [Greenberg & Arawaka] and decreasing everything that you don’t want 125 less burnout [HBR], 66% fewer sick leaves [Forbes], and 51% less turnover [Gallup].
And that’s where Delivering Happiness comes in. We exist to help people, companies, and communities apply the different frameworks of values-based cultures and happiness to their workplaces.
How are we doing it?
We are a CULTURE COACHSULTING* company [hybrid coaching and consulting], applying the SCIENCE OF HAPPINESS and best practices from workplaces around the world.
