How do you measure success in your personal or professional life? Is it by the wealth you create or the goals you achieved? Discover the Bhutanese Way to Happiness and Prosperity.

Gross National Happiness (GNH) is a unique approach that the small Himalayan kingdom, Bhutan, is using to measure progress and development for the country and its people.

For decades, countries have used Gross Domestic Product (GDP) as a measure of their progress and development. However, the people in these high GDP countries are not always happy. Bhutan has taken a unique approach by prioritizing Gross National Happiness (GNH) as the tool to transform the future generation and as basis of decision-making in governance.

Implementing GNH can also be helpful to companies in managing their own businesses. By prioritizing the well-being and happiness of their employees and customers, companies can create a more positive and productive work environment.
