The history of business is the story of entrepreneurs, executives, leaders, and employees, all of whom along the way add to the theory of management. For the 20th anniversary of strategy+business, we, the editors, decided to track the milestones of management history. This interactive catalog is the result.

Appreciation is one of the highest emotional states you can experience. When you cultivate gratitude, you’re able to feel true joy and contentment, no matter what you have or don’t have in your life. And since the Law of Attraction states that like attracts like, when you’re grateful for what you already have, you will naturally attract more for which you can be grateful.

Brains? Grit? Luck? Nope, science says the most likely sign that you're going to succeed big time is something else.

Take a Vacation Already
As the Atlantic reports, Americans on average accrue 18 vacation days per year and only use 16, whereas our French counterparts use up to twice as much. Based on these statistics,Europeans seem to understand the value of taking a break and how productive it can be more than Americans. So, instead of sitting on a mountain of vacation time, use it. Take a trip somewhere you've always wanted to visit and enjoy the experience of disconnecting from the hustle and bustle of your daily life. Enough cannot be said about how effective a break can be in helping you reconnect with your family and loved ones and come back to work refreshed and rejuvenated.

I got Diplomat.  Diplomats prize interpersonal harmony.  They are the social glue and affiliative force that keeps groups together.  They’re typically kind, social, and giving, and often have deep personal bonds with their employees.  And they’re often known for being able to resolve conflicts peacefully (and avoid them in the first place).

Working for Diplomats is often more fun and social than working for other leaders (especially the Pragmatists).  Diplomats put less emphasis on challenging their employees than they do putting their people in positions to succeed and leverage their strengths.  Diplomats work to avoid having people feel uncomfortable or anxious.  Traditional measures of employee satisfaction are often very high for Diplomats. For the appropriate people, it’s a great situation.

Famous Diplomats include Mohandas Gandhi and Sheryl Sandberg (COO of Facebook).

Story

Share Happiness Evangelist
Introduction
Have you found your destiny? I have! I am an Evangelist of Share Happiness at Bluegreen Vacations where we believe in the power of vacations. In the economics of happiness, we know that more vacations equal more happiness. That being the case, we are simply Gung Ho about the experiences we provide and the talent that helps us make the world a happier place. 

Thanks to Bluegreen Vacations, I have over 17 years experience as an HR professional in a corporate setting. My goals currently center around Inspirational Leadership, developing greater depth in Human Resource Development, adult learning and organizational performance improvement. Strongly committed to the implications of the service-profit chain and realizing value through a work environment populated with satisfied, loyal and productive associates. I believe that truly vital organizations have the potential for untapped levels of performance that capture a balance of the two ultimate outcomes of any large-scale human collaboration (i.e., organizational effectiveness and organizational health). Further, I believe that organizational health enables organizational effectiveness but not vice versa. Organizational Health is then an outcome or the collective destiny for any organization that is up to the creation of a habitat for happiness!
