THE INNOVATION AND HAPPINESS
INNOVATION IS USUALLY FOCUSED ON PRODUCTS AND SERVICES
AND NOT ON WHAT REALLY MAKES EVERYTHING HAPPEN: PEOPLE.
The most challenging task to achieve is to build an innovation engine, an open space where the company can build their own future. So far, tools and processes have been built, but the biggest challenge is to find ways to build with confidence the right organizational culture for an innovation engine that can live next to the execution one.
Think for a moment to flare up the full potential of people working in a company, focusing innovation on them. What will happen is that people will begin to create a culture of innovation, they will promote innovation led by values, they will cultivate happy customers and they will help to create amazing products and services.
THE ELEMENTS THAT LEAD INNOVATION ON PEOPLE CONTRIBUTE TO INCREASE HAPPINESS AT WORK AND VICE VERSA.
THE TWELVE PRINCIPLES OF INNOVATION ON PEOPLE
PURSUE HAPPINESS AT WORK
Happiness is a all-round skill. When people are happy they are more creative, more innovative, more emphatic. work better with others, fix problems instead of complaining about them, have more energy, are more optimistic, motivated, and healthy, they are less concerned about making mistakes and make significantly less ones, learn faster and take better decisions.
CARE COMPANY CULTURE
All the people in the company participate in the innovation cycle: Employees, suppliers, partners, stakeholders, customers and shareholders. The right company culture favours an input and output movement of stimulation and prospects to and from the company, implementing an open innovation.
CREATE A CONTEXT THAT MATCHES PEOPLE NEEDS
The creation of a growing environment where people express their full potential in work promote the very expression of the individual. Only a work environment attentive to the needs of employees will actually contribute to innovation.
When the innovative approach is a fun experience, the child within us regains the ability to play. Fun is a key ingredient of creative thinking because it helps people to play with ideas, makes them less critical and allows them to see things in new ways. The wealth of perspectives lead, indeed, to universal innovation.
BE MORE DEMOCRATIC
The more democratic organizational structures promote a cohesive working environment for people, where both success and failure are appreciated. Focus on coordinating the work and not on that of people will distance the company from the hierarchical model and assure that people feel part of the organization.
Simplicity is powerful. Agility increases the happiness of people and facilitates the organizational processes to reduce the effort involved in doing things. People can work more efficiently and devote time in surplus to what they like most.
CREATE A GREAT EMPLOYEE EXPERIENCE
The successful experience of the employee begins the first day of employment because there is not a second chance to make a good impression. Similarly to the customer experience what happens when an employee interacts with the company determines his degree of involvement and all his decisions: to be more motivated, to not resign and to do more in that environment.
50% DIGITAL 50% HUMAN
Digital technology helps increase happiness if used correctly. Our brains are not accustomed to the complexity and amount of information of today, but technology can help. The welfare of the person goes through the use of technology as a form of aid and not as a tool that increases complexity.
FOSTER HAPPINESS OF CUSTOMERS
The employees know the customers better than anyone else and happy employees lead happy customers. Innovation takes place at the extremities of the organizational structure where employees work directly with customers. It is essential to put people in the best working conditions possible and ensure that they can express themselves fully in their role.
LET PEOPLE BE DIVERSE AND BE INCLUSIVE
People need to realize their different potential in every type of environment and when that happens innovation bursts. The diversity of perspectives inside the company allows to create universal products and services. The right company culture also includes different trends that promote alternative styles of management and leadership.
RELY ON EQ MORE THAN IQ
Happiness is the barometer of emotional intelligence (EQ), that makes a big difference on how people are in life and at work. Encouraging an attitude besides skills and experiences promotes the emotional intelligence that helps to be more efficient on the workplace and to create better leaders, more aware, more transparent and trustworthy.
ESCAPE THE CULTURE OF AVARAGE
Happiness enriches the working environment and promotes the growth of a new group of talented people. The talents come out of their comfort zone by exploring what they are able to do using the strengths to overcome the threshold of sufficiency. Encourage the thrust generated by the talents makes the entire company leap forward.
