On World Smile Day (October 7, 2022) sheatwork analyzes how smiles can keep you on top of the business game.
We celebrate World Smile Day on the first Friday in October and this year it falls on October 7, 2022. First celebrated in 1999, World Smile Day is a day devoted to smiles and acts of kindness.
And what is the background? The person behind this is Harvey Ball, a commercial artist from Worcester, Massachusetts who created the ‘smiley’ face in 1963. This day materialized as a response to his creation of the smiley face. Don’t we know that image has emerged as the most recognizable symbol of good will and good cheer today? Our conversations online is always punctuated with smileys. In fact, the Harvey Ball World Smile Foundation has the motto “Enhancing this world, one smile.” Significantly, World Smile Day is the perfect day to make others smile!
But, a smile should not be a luxory for a few.
Your smile can do wonders for your business. People definitely respond positively to people who smile.
In the business world, if you smile, you’ll encourage your employees to be more open, communicative and innovative too.When an entrepreneur creates a culture of openness at a new company, it can make a big difference to both employees’ and customers’ enthusiasm.
