We talk a lot about leadership, problem solving, communication and other soft skills that help you get a job.
But there’s one soft skill that we don’t talk about often enough… one that not only helps you get the job, but excel once you’re there. That skill?
The ability to remain positive – and exude happiness, even when things aren’t going just right – is a critical workplace skill. Consider:
- Happy workers take 15 less sick days than their unhappy colleagues
- Those that are happy stay with their employer twice as long
- Happy employees are 186% more likely to talk positively about their work online
