Only 1/3 of Americans say they feel engaged at work.
This statistic led JoDee Curtis, SHRM-SCP, SPHR, CPA to write JoyPowered®: Intentionally Creating an Inspired Workspace, a book that challenges readers to make their lives and workspaces JoyPowered®.
Employees who feel positive about their company spread the joy around, which improves teamwork, leverages internal resources, and bolsters creativity and innovation. They’re more resilient through negative events, and they attract more enthusiastic labor and increasing loyalty. You shouldn't settle for a tolerable workplace!
Creating a JoyPowered® workspace is easier than you think. All it takes is a series of small, intentional changes, focusing on strengths instead of weaknesses.
Putting the Humanity Back into HR
After the success of JoyPowered®, JoDee teamed up with Susan Tinder White, SHRM-SCP, SPHR, CEO of Susan Tinder White Consulting and former Senior Vice President and Human Resources Executive at JPMorgan Chase, to create The JoyPowered® Workspace Podcast. The co-hosts strive to put the humanity back into HR by talking through career and business issues from both employer and employee perspectives. Some episodes are even eligible for SHRM recertification credits!
Creating a Joyful Family
Our work life has a significant impact on our relationships at home, and vice versa. In 2018, JoDee collaborated with Denise McGonigal, MA, Corporate Trainer and former Director of Adult Faith Formation, to write a book about bringing the JoyPowered® philosophy to your family life.
The JoyPowered® Family helps families (biological or self-defined) understand how focusing on strengths can bring out the best in others and themselves. Joy can start with one family member at a time; it starts with YOU, wherever you are.
Building a Joyful Team
Do you find joy in working with your team? In 2019, JoDee put together a team to write a book about joyful teams. JoDee, Erin Brothers, SHRM-CP, Peggy Hogan, SHRM-SCP, Denise McGonigal, MA, Laura North, SHRM-CP, Susan Tinder White, SHRM-SCP, and Liz Zirkelbach put their heads together to bring the JoyPowered® philosophy to teamwork.
The JoyPowered® Team helps business leaders and associates build strong inclusive teams, navigate workplace challenges, revitalize teams who falter, and thrive as teams evolve. Joy can start with one team member at a time; it starts with YOU, whatever your role, industry, or area of expertise.
We love teaching people about JoyPowered®! In our talks and training sessions, discover how to create a dynamic and inspired workspace by focusing on strengths instead of fixating on weaknesses. The JoyPowered® philosophy helps organizations and individuals understand how to focus on their strengths, bringing out the best in others and themselves. A healthy work culture doesn’t have to start at the top; an inspired workspace starts with YOU!
