The Performance-Happiness Model
Happiness at Work and the 5Cs
Performance and Happiness at Work are evidenced by the 5Cs. They are:
- Contribution: what you do
- Conviction: your short-term motivation
- Culture: your feeling of fit
- Commitment: your long-term engagement
- Confidence: your self-belief
These are all interlocked, working as an ecosystem which means that they have a strong impact on each other.
And three other factors foster the context for the 5Cs. They are:
- Trust in an organization
- Recognition from an organization
- Pride in an organization
To be happy at work, an individual must have a sense of achieving their potential, so it lies at the heart of the model. And all this means we believe that Happiness at Work is a mindset which enables action to maximize performance and achieve potential.
