Ever consider why?

Praise is about giving and receiving conscious gratitude.  Taking a moment to recognize a fellow coworker for their greatness will not only grow your greatness but also create brain cell of engagement. Emotional contagion is a dated concept in science. Today it is getting traction because corporate america is getting unhappy or disengaged.  

How do you gauge happiness?

Asking someone if they are happy is one way to do it.  An ineffective way.  But as a box checker manager, you can ask, “are you happy?” Or as a leader you can make fst inferences through the people you trust. For instance get a sense of, how many people go on interviews.  That will tell you they seek novelty.  Inserting opportunities of personal growth inside the day to day increases engagement and drives corporate profitability.
