With the increase in population that separates ‘work’ from ‘life’, as if work is absence of life, it becomes increasingly important to study about what happiness means to people at work, so that they can be made to feel alive in their offices too. This session is aimed at introducing two interesting research studies that aimed to do just that. Also, this session helps people understand if agility keeps us happy in the true sense.
The two studies that this session will discuss about are as follows:
- Richard M. Ryan et al’s Self Determination Theory – led to a book Drive by Dan Pink
- Mihaly’s Measurement of Flow in Everyday’s life – led to book Flow by Mihaly himself
This session does not just explain these two research works but also will find the commonalities between these and will engage the audience with discussions using leading questions, thereby bringing out personal examples that they can relate to.
