S3Ep15: Happy Stakeholders, Happy Shareholders
The pursuit of happiness is a fundamental right guaranteed in the constitution and defined in the Declaration of Independence to freely pursue joy and live life in a way that makes you happy, as long as you act within the law. Consider rules as a frame to a painting, rather than a limitation on your freedom. Does that perspective change how you feel about rules? People make decisions for two reasons: it is either what the law requires of them, or it is what they want. People-first design is the most effective way to reach your goals. Human capital is the most important thing, which is why setting a Human Satisfaction Threshhold is such a gamechanger. Hence the saying, happy stakeholders, happy shareholders! Join us today to hear more.

“I feel a sense of freedom knowing relevant laws. Once you understand the borders, you know the frame, and within that frame you can go wild with creativity. Rules take away as much of your freedom as a frame does from the beauty of a painting.” — @baharansari [0:01:30]
“The human capital are what keep the lights on and serve the human customers. Human customers are those who consume whatever it is that the company provides and keep the company going. Yet these people’s happiness is often left out of any significant conversation.” — @baharansari [0:04:14]
