About

The Happiness Advantage training video gives you a formula for improving productivity, overcoming challenges, increasing cognitive abilities, and improving teamwork – all while improving your mindset. This comprehensive training program is based on Shawn Achor’s book, Happiness Advantage: The Seven Principles of Positive Psychology That Fuel Success and Performance at Work.

What does being happy have to do with work? We've all been told that if we work hard, we'll be successful. And if we're successful, we'll be happy. What if that formula is wrong? What if the opposite were true and happiness is the secret to success - at work and at home?

The Happiness Advantage is a new video-based training program that shows you how happiness can improve your performance and satisfaction at work. Happy is a healthy state of mind and it is infectious! When our brains are happy, that positive feeling will ripple out to those around us, which can raise productivity and help us work faster and smarter. The implications for your workplace can be tremendous.

Did you know that optimistic salespeople outsell their pessimistic colleagues by 56%? According to bestselling author of The Happiness Advantage, Shawn Achor, happy employees have higher levels of productivity. Happy employees also perform better in leadership roles and receive higher pay! You might even find that happiness can be your single most important competitive advantage.

In the Happiness Advantage video, you'll learn the following:

  • You'll understand the science that underlies The Happiness Advantage
  • You will see how you can put The Happiness Advantage to work personally to improve your productivity, performance and satisfaction
  • You'll learn how you can spread The Happiness Advantage to everyone in your organization

In addition to the main training video, you can purchase the Complete Training Program that includes Shawn's five practical implementation modules. In these modules, you will learn how it is possible to make a positive workplace a reality.

The modules cover easy, everyday techniques that can turn even the most pessimistic worker into an optimist. Transform your organization into a happy and productive entity with these simple applications.

The Happiness Advantage Implementation Module topics include:

The Zorro Circle
- 7 Minutes
Too many unread emails, multitasking and impossible deadlines can hijack your brain’s ability to function productively. The Zorro Circle will show you a few simple, daily tasks that will help you reduce stress and increase productivity. Learn how to focus on things that you can control. Plus it’s fun to see how Zorro did it! :)

Social Investment
- 6 Minutes
Many people tend to keep to themselves when faced with stress. However, this is one of the worst things you can do! The best predictor of happiness is social support. Capitalizing on social relationships actually increases happiness and productivity. This module will teach you how to use your social support to get you through stressful situations.

Falling Up - 7 Minutes
With this program you can turn even the most pessimistic workers into low-level optimists. Shawn’s research shows that optimistic salespeople made 37% more sales than pessimistic salespeople. Your mindset is a powerful indicator for future success. Simple changes in mindset can make a huge difference!

Leading Positive Change - 10 Minutes
The perfect tool for leaders! Recognizing employees is the most important way to get them to enjoy their job. Praise is essential, but it is often misused. We often praise the result of an effort, for example “Great job meeting your monthly sales goal” rather than the process, for example “Great job working so hard, it shows that you care about your work.” Shawn teaches us how to spread the Happiness Advantage to others using a few simple techniques.

Mindset Matters - 7 Minutes
Your mindset makes a huge difference to your happiness. How optimistic you are actually affects your productivity, your ability to make sales, even the number of sick days you take. When you are positive, you have a significant advantage: You’re able to see opportunities for success that more negatively minded people simply pass over.
