The happy secret to better work
A fascinating and funny lecture from TED (as usual). This time it is Shawn Achor, who explains to us how to completely overturn our understanding: that success at work (and not only at work) results from the worker being happy, and not the other way around…
Shawn Achor is the winner of over a dozen distinguished teaching awards at Harvard University, where he delivered lectures on positive psychology in the most popular class at Harvard.
He is the CEO of Good Think Inc., a Cambridge-based consulting firm, which researches positive outliers – people who are well above average – to understand where human potential, success and happiness intersect. Based on his research and 12 years of experience at Harvard, he clearly and humorously describes to organizations how to increase happiness and meaning, raise success rates and profitability, and create positive transformations that ripple into more successful cultures. He is also the author of The Happiness Advantage.
