  • Beyond Happiness Featuring Jenn Lim

    How Authentic Leaders Lead with Happiness and Humanity 

    Shep Hyken interviews Jenn Lim, CEO of Delivering Happiness and the author of Beyond Happiness: How Authentic Leaders Prioritize Purpose and People for Growth and Impact. They discuss how leaders can adapt to the new workplace by being authentic and aligned with their purpose. 

    Top Takeaways:  

    ·      As leaders, we need to get more real with ourselves. We want to celebrate the highs in our lives but we also need to recognize our lows and our blind spots. Then, we need to allow the people that we lead to do that, too.

    ·      In the past year, we have experienced the "Great Resignation" where a record number of 4 million employees, in the US alone, quit their jobs in April. The integration of work and life in a way that has never been experienced before has led people to evaluate what is most important to them and how they can align their lives with it.

    ·      The experiences that we have had in the past couple of years have prompted many to ask the questions like: How can I align myself and my life with what is most important to me? What are the things that I need to work on and be aware of so I can be a more whole person at work and in life?

    ·      When employees are unhappy and start leaving the company, leaders can learn so much by asking them why and actually listening. Have an open and honest dialogue as to where your employees are at work and in life.

    ·      Authenticity goes into the wholeness of a person. Leaders must respect who employees are as human beings beyond their skills and what they bring to the table.

    ·      The more employees see that they are respected inside and outside their specific role and title, the more they want to be productive, engaged, and loyal.
