'Champions of positivity and ok-ness' NHS Leadership Development Team nominated for Happiest Team award

The Wolverhampton-based NHS Leadership Development Team 'educate, develop and support other teams and individuals to maintain their happiness at work', according to Catherine Lisseman, who nominated the team for a National Happiness Award 2018. We are 'champions of positivity and ok-ness', she added in her nomination.

Enabling safer patient journeys in a high-pressure environment is a vital part of the team's role, and according to Catherine 'Happy staff at work means a safer patient journey'. She goes on to say" 'We support our staff to communicate, think and judge clearly. Without the right support, staff can make decisions which can adversely affect patient care. Working in a highly complex environment with a staff base of 9000, this is no easy feat!

'The team teach system-wide, meaning they are installing a resilient and happy work ethic into even the most obscure nook and cranny of our organisation. They are a shining light of positivity and help many people to be the best versions of themselves.'

It is so encouraging to see a prestigious organisation like the NHS, recognising happiness as an important tool in improving performance and improving the wellbeing of their workforce.

Does your organisation, deserve a chance to win a National Happiness Award 2018, or maybe you would like to support Catherine with her nomination.

Nominations close at midnight tomorrow. Go to the happiness awards page and nominate today.
