I’ve always considered myself a generally happy person and, pun not intended, I’m glad. We talk about this at IMPACT quite a bit; How a person’s mood can really affect the team around them and we take it very seriously. If there’s something bothering you that’s work-related, talk to the proper person. If it’s personal, work from home or take some time off. Even with this culture, I never considered the fact that you can actually measure someone’s overall happiness.
Picture this. It was a hot summer day in Wallingford, CT. The whole team was in office for one of our quarterly team get togethers. We were in the middle of our annual Dip Day, which is the best day of the year - yes, even better than Christmas - because everyone makes and shares a different dip and you eat dips for days.
