Write for the Happy Manager
The Happy Manager is a resource for managers, educators and students who want to help find a better way to manage. It’s packed with ideas, tips and tools to help you do just that.
We’ve been building the website since 2007 and it has grown to over 300 pages, on a range of management topics. However, we’re happy to accept your help in developing it even further!
Why write for us?
We are looking for motivated people who want to help us build the site and help find better ways to manage. If you’d like to contribute high quality pages or resources for our knowledge hub, or relevant, topical posts for our blog, then we’d love to hear from you.
Although there is no financial compensation for writing on the Happy Manager, you will benefit from your contribution. Last year the Happy Manager received almost a million page views, from a wide audience of managers, students, teachers, trainers and other professionals.
If we accept a submission from you it will give you:
- The opportunity to showcase your writing (and bio) to a growing, global readership.
- A chance to have your say and help us find a better way to manage.
We welcome well-written content on the following topics:
- Well-being in the Workplace
- Decision Making
- Problem Solving
- Managing Performance
- Goal Setting
- Happy Customers
- Time Management
- Personal and Career Development
- Managing Projects & Change
