Happy Culture, Happy People

with Samantha Clarke


About This Class

Want to make a change in your workplace and grow together? Well, we want to help! This class is great for teams looking to prioritize happiness and growth at work.

What does it mean to have a happy working culture? When most of us picture it, it includes images of team members excited to begin their working day; smiling, laughing, and collaborating harmoniously with each other, under the watchful eye of a strong but benevolent boss. With a clear purpose, motivation is high and the company’s achievements are a direct result of the fulfillment of its employees.

Is this the reality? Sadly no. Forbes recently reported that over 50% of US employees are unhappy at work. That’s the bad news. The good news, however, is that we can change this.

This class is designed to shake up your business so that it’s firing on all cylinders by creating a culture of positivity and growth. By elevating emotional intelligence, empowering managers to look after their team’s well-being, navigating the impacts of technology and remote work, and by building an environment that supports, retains, and attracts happy employees, you can change your culture for good.

Together we will: 

  • Cultivate a positive and optimistic business outlook that is still realistic
  • Learn how to grow your employees inner strengths and resilience
  • Enable employees to interrogate the causes of their stress and anxiety and help them manage it effectively 
  • Teach methods for generating more positive emotions in turbulent situations and handle conflict with poise
  • Identify aspects of your culture which need to change in order for everyone’s well-being to improve

Samantha Clarke is a happiness consultant and author of Love It or Leave It: How to be Happy at Work. Through her platform, individuals can design and build better and happier ways of being and working and learn to live with real purpose and intention.

As a faculty lecturer at The School of Life and The Guardian Masterclasses, she facilitates workshops on career potential, managing stress, confidence and happiness at work. Her clientele includes LVMH, NHS, Nespresso and Virgin.

Pretty great actually—thanks so much for asking! We hope you’re having a great day as well.

All class times are listed in US Eastern Standard Time. We are working to add more time slots that are time-zone friendly globally.

While we wish we could clone Simon, science just isn’t quite there yet. That is why we’ve trained our Optimist Instructors to teach our classes. However, our two on-demand courses are taught by Simon – check out Find Your WHY and The Art of Presenting!

When it’s time for class, you can log in here and click on your class under My Live Online Classes. You should receive reminder emails the day before class and again two hours before. Please check your spam folder if you don’t see those reminders in your inbox. We can’t wait to have you join us!

Don’t worry, we’ve got you!

We are always looking to add more class options to accommodate our global audience. We hope to have some great options for you soon. In the meantime, Simon’s books have been translated into multiple languages and can be ordered online.

We totally understand that schedules can change at the last minute. An unedited recording is available for 48 hours after class ends for all classes except for our WHY series.

We’re glad you asked! Our 60- and 90-minute classes offer: more detail, more connection with your fellow attendees, more activities, and more interaction with our instructors. The 25-minute classes are more lecture-style. They feature more information-per-minute, but the shorter timeframe also means fewer opportunities for active participation.

We know you’re busy and, if you can’t easily spare 60 minutes, we don’t want to deprive you of an opportunity to grow!

Yes! Buy any three of our 25-minute classes in one purchase and you’ll get the third class for half-price. This means that if you purchase a bundle of three 25-minute classes, it will cost $100 instead of the full $120. The $20 discount will be applied to your cart automatically during checkout. If you buy three 25-minute classes in separate transactions, you’ll pay the full price for all classes. 

Yes, we have team options! We love that you are looking to take care of those around you. Your team can join a public class, and you’ll receive a team discount at checkout when you register 10+ team members.  

If you want a private class just for your team, on a date and time that works for you, then visit our private class page and our team will be excited to help you. 

 Our team is more than happy to assist you; just contact us here and we’ll get back to you ASAP.

A spark is something quite small and, by itself, not very powerful. But a spark has the ability to ignite. An idea is like a spark; alone it is just a set of words, but it too can ignite. A great idea can inspire others to dream bigger. Let us all work together to ignite something greater than ourselves.

Let us all be a Spark of Optimism.
