Happiness Metric Webinar

All the questions and growing excitement surrounding the Happiness Metric have made us decide to host a webinar on what it is, how it can be used, and how powerful it can be. Jeff's time is incredibly booked, and we know not everyone can make it to one of his classes, so we thought we'd try a webinar to offer his insight into how you can push teams into hyperproductivity just by asking how happy people are. The one-hour seminar will be on Wednesday, June 27 and you will have a chance to ask Jeff questions in a Q&A session.

From the course description:
Happiness is the key to success. Measuring it is the key to improvement. This one-hour webinar with the co-creator of Scrum, Dr. Jeff Sutherland, will show you how to do it. Everyone knows it instinctively, happy people do better work, make customers happy, and make the workplace a better place to be. People are simply fed up with working in an unhappy company. More and more talented people simply won’t work in command and control environments based on punishment and blame, they’d rather be happy. 
But how do you make people happy? Or more precisely, how do help people make themselves happy? And most importantly how do you make yourself happy? 
Scrum was designed by Dr. Sutherland to bootstrap developers out of an environment where they were always late and under pressure into a team experience that could change their lives. He now studies the Happiness Metric for the companies he works with as closely as he does the balance sheet. Unlike financial metrics, which just tell you how much money was made in the past, Happiness taps into employees feelings about the future.
