Husband, Mom, Dad, Son, Daughter, Brother, Sister, Friend, Best Friend, Schoolmate, Colleague.
You've been in one of these and I'm sure your connection may be different from each one, but everyone is connected and it's all the same-LOVE.
Fiona, our beloved CEO (boss, friend, sister,cool mom, our fairy godmother and everything in between) is a big fan of Vishen Lakhiani's work - "Code of Extraordinary Mind" and now, #LoveWeek.
Vishen shares the science, the art, the business, the study, the experiment of #LoveWeek at work and I think everyone would agree when we say that we all want to share some LOVIN'!
#LoveWeek as explained by Karina Swenson, (director of content marketing) is Valentines meet Secret Santa (or we Pinoy fondly call Monito-Monita!) and here's how it works - Each person plays a "Secret Angel" and a "Human" to somebody. Before Loveweek starts, everyone draws a name of someone to be a "Secret Angel" to for Love week without actually revealing their identity. Throughout the entire week, every single day, (or if you are really that loving!) multiple times of the day, You as the angel, SECRETLY do something nice for your Human- post it notes with empowering quotes, cards, candy, food, paper crafts, origami, flowers from your garden, the list is endless. On the other hand, your duty as a Loveweek HUMAN is to receive all the love and care and be grateful and feel good at work all day!
Vishen believes in Modern Science that when people working are happy, they are much more productive- boosting happiness, we boost productivity. Harvard Study proved that Social Connections among staff at work helps to connect. We spend majority of our waking hours at work, why not fill it up with Connections? Joy? and Happiness?
GO-VA joins the world to celebrate #LoveWeek. One of our Company Values CARE fits perfectly with this and brings in the fun with the other four - DRIVE, LEARN, EXECUTE and FIND A WAY.
The secret is not with the gifts, based on the book "Good to Great" by Jim Collins, it mentions that in great companies, employees love their jobs because of who they do their jobs with. One Key ingredient is Friendships at Work that are formed. Gallup Study shows that if you have a best friend at work, you are 7x to be engaged at your job.
Fiona's doing #LoveWeek, rather make that #GOVALoveWeek and we invite everyone to join her as we celebrate a whole week of lots of lovin'!
