Inhaltsangabe

Our most commonly held formula for success is broken.

Conventional wisdom holds that if we work hard we will be more successful, and if we are more successful, then we’ll be happy. If we can just find that great job, win that next promotion, lose those five pounds, happiness will follow. But recent discoveries in the field of positive psychology have shown that this formula is actually backward: Happiness fuels success, not the other way around. When we are positive, our brains become more engaged, creative, motivated, energetic, resilient, and productive at work. This isn’t just an empty mantra. This discovery has been repeatedly borne out by rigorous research in psychology and neuroscience, management studies, and the bottom lines of organizations around the globe.

In The Happiness Advantage, Shawn Achor, who spent over a decade living, researching, and lecturing at Harvard University, draws on his own research—including one of the largest studies of happiness and potential at Harvard and others at companies like UBS and KPMG - to fix this broken formula. Using stories and case studies from his work with thousands of Fortune 500 executives in 42 countries, Achor explains how we can reprogram our brains to become more positive in order to gain a competitive edge at work.

Isolating seven practical, actionable principles that have been tried and tested everywhere from classrooms to boardrooms, stretching from Argentina to Zimbabwe, he shows us how we can capitalize on the Happiness Advantage to improve our performance and maximize our potential.

Kritikerstimmen

"Shawn Achor is funny, self-deprecating, and devastating to my notions of what his field is all about…. I'm butter to his knife." ( The Boston Globe)
"Achor bases his training on a burgeoning body of research on the positive psychology movement, which emphasizes instilling resiliency and positive attitudes." ( The Wall Street Journal)

Great Speaker and content

These principals should be taught in school. The audio book is easily understandable, and with only about 7 hours should not take more than two days.

Inhalt interessant, Stimmspur blechern

Während der Inhalt in weiten Teilen sehr interessant ist, ist der Sprecher in der Aufnahme teilweise recht schwer verständlich. Die Stimmspur scheppert" manchmal, so dass Laute verschwimmen. Schade und nicht wirklich die technische Qualität, die ich von Audible gewohnt bin.

"Effeminate" Voice and reading style! DON`T BUY!

The Scholar is reading himself. Book is very long cuz "unabridged". So if you can buy the abridged version. Book is good and interesting. But due to the very effeminate voice and reading style of the reader - at least when ur a "regular" man like me - you WILL feel strongly nerved and disturbed and wont want to listen to it further. Only after a looong while of painly and stressfully listening you get used to the reader and find a way to concentrate on the topic.

I really cannot advise you to buy this. It nerved me THIS much! So the advice is clearly: DON`T BUY!
