Every organization faces crises where working as a team makes the difference. Here’s an example relatable to a business situation: “The Royal Navy assiduously records how cheerfulness counts in operations. In 2002 one of its ships ran aground, triggering the largest and most dangerous flooding incident in recent years. The Royal Navy’s board of inquiry found that “morale remained high” throughout demanding hours of damage control and that “teams were cheerful and enthusiastic,” focusing on their tasks; “sailors commented that the presence, leadership, and good humor of senior officers gave reassurance and confidence that the ship would survive.” Add ‘cheerfulness’ to your recipe for engagement inside your organization.
