I am an agile coach by practice and visualize everything in an agile way, where happiness and culture are major ingredients. Happiness at work or at home is a win-win situation. Happy, engaged people are healthier, more productive; they have more ideas, are more likely to contribute over and above the responsibilities of their job and perform to the best of their ability. So, if your team or family is happy, you and others around them are more likely to be happy too.
