A Few Kind Words By Our Students
I have been looking for training in this area for some time. As I believe that it will be an increasingly valued area in companies is undoubtedly the area in which I wanted to reinforce my skills.The course is very well structured and with very relevant content. It gave me a set of tools that I can use in my day-to-day life, with me and my team. I strongly recommend it.

I loved doing this course. The way it is presented and given, gives us a huge motivation for not wanting to stop and above all we absorb it in an extremely simple and effective way. The way the modules are presented is crucial for us to begin to understand what happiness really is and the importance it has in our daily life. We end up with an organizational happiness plan, a tool to use in our daily lives and manage to convey the message in a clear and objective way.

I had been thinking about doing this certification for a long time, so in November 2020 I decided to enroll. I can say that it was one of the best decisions I made. Even being a Product Owner in an IT company and not being directly linked to the role of Happiness Manager, the first module 'The Science of Happiness' allowed me to change my mindset in my workplace in a very positive way. The course is very complete, with lots of materials, from videos, book recommendations, scientific research that make this certification event more interesting. But the best part is the support given by the trainer Madalena and the opportunity to interact with a community that, like me, is learning. I really recommend this course!

The course has largely exceeded my expectations. We have been provided with an extremely enriching journey that invites us to act for change, to build experiences of space and working time with more meaning. I would also like to highlight the requirement of the process, the care in providing resources and tools that will facilitate the consolidation of lessons learned, the monitoring of themes with very relevant material and the availability of the team. The adopted methodology proved to be very effective, allowing to permanently monitor learning. A final reference for the preparation and pedagogical skills of the trainer, which has removed a barrier that is often felt in e-learning and in asynchronous training actions.

I found this course thorough and engaging! 5 modules with 19 sessions covering research, theory and practice, as well as management tools and assessements for organizations. It was no walk in the park as they say, but really fun for me to go through this experience and I learned quite a great deal from doing the work. I couldn’t get my eyes off the materials from the moment I started, that it motivated me to take the next step with CHO (Chief Happiness Officer) as well. Definitely a valuable, new and much needed perspective to bring to our companies, even to friends and families, especially in such times when we remember that organizations are ultimately made of people with hopes, dreams, desires and fears and taking care of them is good for business!

With a law degree, Madalena worked for several years in immigration and compliance, focusing on international education - but soon realized that that was not her path to happiness. Followed to her discovery, and through coaching for personal and professional performance, she then started helping people improving their realities. Through her experience (and tons of data), Madalena realized the number one reason for her clients' unhappiness and depression was related to labor issues - and found in her the urge to fix it. Madalena is today the Founder of Happiness Business School & Sustainability Buiness School, Course Diretor of the MBA Organisational Happiness in Lisbon and a Corporate Happiness Expert & Consultant, with several certifications and executive training: Coaching, Business Coaching, Neuro-linguistic Programming, Chief Happiness Officer, Science of Happiness, Science of Well Being (Yale University), and Positive Psychiatry and Mental Health (University of Sydney). To this day, Madalena has helped hundreds of people and companies all around the world. Her main mission? Boosting meaningful work cultures to promote purposeful careers.
