Happiness Is The Ultimate Economic Indicator

Happiness Is The Ultimate Economic Indicator | Success Leadership | Scoop.it
One factor that is increasingly being cited as an important economic indicator is happiness. After all, what good is increased production and consumption if the result isn’t increased human satisfaction? Until fairly recently, the subject of happiness was mostly avoided by economists for lack of good ways to measure it; however, in recent years, “happiness economists” have found ways to combine subjective surveys with objective data (on lifespan, income, and education) to yield data with consistent patterns, making a national happiness index a practical reality.

donhornsby's curator insight, September 3, 8:02 AM

(From the article): Become project based. Contrary to popular belief, expecting one person to know and do everything is not ideal. To maximize a team’s output, it is critical to identify the right person with the right contextual knowledge of the subject at hand so that he or she can take that project and run with it. However, doing so creates a shift in the balance of power as the team’s focus morphs from being leader-centric to performance-centric—a paradigm not welcomed by all.

 

Whether it’s apparent or not, teamwork is how business gets done.   Without the collective interests and efforts to execute corporate strategy, progress—and therefore, performance—becomes limited. Even if you work solely in data and metrics and your best friend seems to be the computer, you must still report to somebody out of a common objective that binds the company: long-term success.

Eric Frykman's curator insight, September 23, 4:36 PM

This article has a four point list:

1) Credibility

2) Product

3) Service

4) Price

 

This was not written by anyone in sales, as #4 should be off the table completely. Product is "do you have more bells" and Service is "can you be better than your competition."

 

None of this is useful to a small company competing against a giant.

 

What you really need is to build 

5) VALUE

 

I.e. Why are you here - what pain are you solving? How are YOU my savior? How do you fix all my problems and help me get to sleep at night? 

 

That's how you compete and become a giant-killer. Focus your story around Value, and you'll win every time.
