After decades of research, Shawn Achor’s book explains the latest in positive psychology and neuroscience. We often believe, that if I we can just do “this” or get “that” we will be a happier person. Have you ever noticed that once you get what you want you soon need something else just as badly to become happier? Achor suggests that happiness is the precursor to success and not vice versa. When we are happy we are more engaged, have more energy and are more productive at work. When we are happy we are more successful.
By offering humor and interesting anecdotes, The Happiness Advantage isn’t only about how to become happier at work. It’s about how to reap the benefits of a happier and more positive mind-set to achieve the extraordinary in our work and in our lives.
