Harvard Researcher | Bestselling Author of The Happiness Advantage
Is there a connection between happiness and success? Shawn Achor is the world’s leading expert on the topic. His acclaimed TED Talk, The Happy Secret to Better Work, has been seen by over sixteen million people around the world, and his two books, The Happiness Advantage and Before Happiness, took The New York Times bestseller list by storm. Having spent over a decade at Harvard University as the Head Teaching Fellow in Positive Psychology, Achor bridges the gap between happiness psychology research and what it means for the workforce and individuals alike.
Achor has spoken in dozens countries to a wide variety of audiences including a third of the Fortune 100 companies, the NFL, the Pentagon and the U.S. Treasury. In 2007, he founded Good Think Inc., an organization that believes “research should be lived.” His work has received attention from the likes of The Harvard Business Review, New York Times, Forbes, CNN, and NPR, and he was the subject of a two hour interview with Oprah Winfrey.
