How to be happy at work? Found tips and share experience in this “Ask Me Anything” session where SSW’s Adam Cogan discusses with Kylie Hunt about happiness in the workplace.
They cover many different aspects such as dealing with a bad boss (what we mean by “bad boss” and how to help them improve), what it involves to be a people manager, how to help new employees or even 360 degrees reviews. They also answer attendees’ questions about concerns or more pieces of advice to share.
There is definitely food for thought for everyone whether you have a managerial role or not!
Do you have any tips to share on how to improve workplace happiness? Any story to tell? Let us know in the comments below!

SSW TV was there to run the ‘Ask Me Anything’ booth, where we grabbed some of those speakers after their sessions and talked about a number of topics.
