Can True Happiness At Work Be Found? A Conversation with Happiness At Work Researcher, Dr. Kathryn Owler

Can True Happiness At Work Be Found? A Conversation with Happiness At Work Researcher, Dr. Kathryn Owler

"It’s good to take a pause and really think about what is going on for me, how do I want it to be, why is it not going quite how I would want it to be, why am I having these feelings about this job that maybe in the past it was all kind of fine, but now has all these different things going on; start to ask ourselves, am I having fun at work and if not, how can I start to do that a bit more?"


Dr. Kathryn Owler has become passionate about finding ways to experience more fun and enjoyment at work.  As a woman researcher she started her career expecting to have a blast at work all the time - only to become disillusioned in her first job and subsequent jobs thereafter. Consequently, she channeled her despair & disappointment into academic research – most recently sharing the secrets of workers who’ve had fun at any job they’ve ever had!

Listen in as Kathryn shares how finding happiness at work goes much deeper than just surface level fun and how finding true happiness in our career can help us achieve greater joy and purpose at work.
