Age has a significant correlation with happiness, mainly through socioeconomic factors influencing subjective well-being. This has far-reaching policy implication.
Extremely homogeneous society, almost full employment, low criminality, high suicide rate due to depression, fastest aging society and declining population, unique way of doing business, and economic growth of 0%. How to vitalize Japan?
Two decades of insights into many organizations, looking at current literature and trends, and most importantly my ‘Happy Colorful Growth’ spirit let me think beyond present common practices. For every organization (cooperatives may be already a step ahead) willing to take a quantum leap in the happier workforce revolution: These are my key objectives for a today’s transcending Chief Learning Officer role:
- 1 Commitment to the Unity of Leadership and Learning
- 2 Understanding Learning as a Strategic Asset
- 3 Outperforming through L&D Investment
- 4 Realizing Intangible Benefits
- 5 Allowing for Diverse Ways of (Learning) Performance
- 6 Bridging the Execution Gap
- 7 Having a Seat at the Board Table
- 8 Rewarding Intrapreneurship
- 9 Directly Reporting to CEO
- 10 Focusing on Strategy Enablement as a Business Partner
- 11 Educating for Change for the Better
“Leadership and Learning are indispensable to each other.” – John F. Kennedy
I believe that an organization’s ability to grow and compete is wholly dependent on the knowledge, skills, and attitudes of its people, as performance is the outcome of learning on individual, group, and organizational level. Not providing the right learning initiatives at the right time to the right group may leave the workforce unprepared for critical challenges.
My definition of hard work has to do primarily with openness, courage and authenticity, rather than just with working long hours and the goal of material profit, although it can involve massive action and material achievements too. I don’t agree with the saying about success that goes ‘One percent is inspiration, ninety-nine percent is perspiration.’ Accessing one’s spiritual foundation and deep inspiration makes hard work less a matter of disciplined suffering than a journey of happy effort. Inspiration either leads to success or a fantastic fun time. Personal growth / maturity is to learn to do what we really want to do, always again and with a lot of commitment to our true inner voice, which is the call of the universal intelligence that can not be wrong.
