    Make Peace With Power: Your Team Will Be Happier

    Feeling powerful is linked with happiness and intrinsic motivation, which means leaders need to be comfortable enough wielding theirs to allow their teams some autonomy. 

    By Janet Choi (Chief Creative Officer, iDoneThis)

    People who feel powerful are happier, according to a recent study published in Psychological Science. Researchers found that authenticity is what connects power and “subjective well-being”, or happiness. When you have power, your behavior can align more closely with your desires and values so that you are free to be more authentic. And when you can go about your day being more true to yourself, you feel happier.

    Successful Women Share Their Accomplishments At Work

    Social tech tools are a natural solution and a great place for women to announce their achievements while building up more confidence and ability to promote themselves.

    By Ginni Chen (Chief Happiness Officer, iDoneThis)

    How many times have you received a compliment and responded, “Oh it’s nothing!”? I’ve done this countless times. In fact, I still do. I do it almost reflexively, because I want to seem humble, modest, unobtrusive, not a braggart, or attention-hungry or a brown-noser. I do it because I want approval of my personality at the small cost of belittling my hard work.
