Reen has compiled the findings of positive psychology research studies to expose our misconceptions about happiness and how they apply to our work life.
If your feelings about work are predominately negative rather than positive, then you are not alone.
Why should businesses care whether or not their staff is happy? Research shows that happy workers are more productive, offer more to their organizations and are less likely to leave in search of a better job.
Many of the secrets in this book will apply just as much to your personal life as to your working one.
This book pulls together the secrets revealed by studies on happiness and provides strategies to increase the positivity in all areas of your life, especially at work.
I really enjoyed your book. Your subject matter is relevant to all of us - not just in matters of employment, but in relationships too. You are able to illuminate common situations at work. The “oh yeah, I’ve been there” points are examples anyone can relate to. Your thoughts are well organized and your book really flows through situations with practical examples of what to do, how to avoid, and “what do you want?.” The easy to read style is part of what makes your book flow. I was on a gentle walk, with you beside me, narrating ideas and situations. I loved it. We were laughing a lot on that walk :) Your humour is soothing for a potentially difficult subject.
