Bestselling happiness expert Shawn Achor urges you to find the joy in collaboration, dispel negativity and take the lead, whatever your formal position.
Bestselling happiness expert Shawn Achor argues that you can achieve more when you collaborate. Going alone leads to being isolated and unhappy, and to achieving only your “Small Potential.” When you lift others up and work in a team, you can achieve your major goals – your “Big Potential.”
Achor – who teaches in the Advanced Management Program at the Wharton Business School and collaborates on research with Yale and Columbia Universities – provides a blueprint for making minor changes that can have a major impact on your life and help you become a significant leader no matter what your position is in your organization’s hierarchy. He advises building your career by establishing a community of positive influencers around you. Learn to give praise and recognition. Create a defense system against negativity. Then, sustain this foundation to support you as you realize your maximum potential.
