Shawn Achor on Positive Psychology and Work


I just have to share this great TED Talk by psychologist, Shawn Achor.

He says everything, (very fast), that I have read, learned and now believe to be true about the relationship between happiness and business. These ideas are central to the work we do with business, organizations and individuals.

I’d add that what we add to his equation, is mindfulness and focus or attention training, as the bedrock on which happiness can be built. Studies show that mind-wandering, a lack of focus is associated with depression and unhappiness. And of course, those things are not associated with success in business or in our personal lives.
