Welcome to Happiness 1st Institute
Happiness 1st Institute can help you and your business accomplish amazing things.
Science has now proven that happiness is not a fluffy, “nice-to-have” emotion. Happiness provides valuable, measurable benefits for both individuals and organizations.
We are unique because we teach happiness from the root cause. Our techniques are not dose-dependent band-aids that must be reapplied continually in order to improve mood. We understand the root cause of happiness and so do our students. We understand what makes humans happy, how to attain it and how to sustain i
Scientific findings document clear benefits of increased happiness. The same individual is more intelligent when he or she is happy and less intelligent when not happy. Happiness has the same effect on creativity, and significant improvements in health, relationships, productivity and success are also caused by increased happiness. Summaries and citations to many of these studies are available under our Science tab.
One example is a company with 1,000 employees whose absenteeism declined an average of 1. 5 days per month, per employee, after the employees participated in a happiness increasing program. That equates to 18,000 additional work days per year in just one company.
The Benefits tab evidences some of the ways specific groups benefit from increased happiness, including businesses, sales people, individuals and children.
As businesses begin recovering from the recent economic downturn some will lead the way, others will follow, and some may not recover. Happy employees can help your business lead the return to prosperity.
You may have noticed that even at the worst of times some businesses and individuals were thriving. You have probably also noticed that even in the best of times there are those who do not thrive. Science turned its attention to the study of what causes flourishing almost 20 years ago and the results show that happiness and optimism have a tremendous impact on which category an individual experiences. Happiness and optimism are not just correlated to thriving, they are causative.
Increased happiness and optimism increase resilience and emotional intelligence. This means that the disruptive impact on employees (and their performance) from negative events is reduced when happiness and optimism are increased.
Our courses are available both in-person and online and can be flexibly designed to fit the needs of your organization.
