Love is what makes the world go round
There is no theme discussed, sung, and described as much as love. But it’s a word we don’t like to use when it comes to work. Quite strange when you consider how many hours we spend working in our lives. What we do and think is guided by what we care about and what we deem important. Actually: love. And that doesn’t stop at the boundary between business and personal life. Love provides us with a framework of principles and goals that emboldens us to dare to live our lives. By loving things, we can achieve our goals. If we didn’t love anything, nothing would truly have value in life. This holds just as true in a business setting.
People who love their work perform better. We actually know it: it’s the people who make the difference in organizations. Yet, we often do not act in accordance with that. That’s why it’s so important to put love on the agenda.
The book: Love@Work. Bringing back humanity into the workplace.
People that love their work and companies that love their people perform better. Deep down we know that it’s the people who make a difference in companies. But it turns out to be unruly to put that into practice. That’s why it’s so important to get happiness and love on the agenda at companies, especially right now. And that’s how my book came to be. Love@Work introduces you to why love it’s so important to focus on love in a business context, to various themes related to love and work and it provides practical tools so you can immediately start implementing love. A must-read for everyone who believes it’s high time for more humanity in organizations. The English version of the book will be available in June 2024. Here you can pre-order it.
The only thing of importance when we depart, will be the traces of love we have left behind.
