Energy + Motivation (HBR Emotional Intelligence Series)

release date: Dec 06, 2022
Energy + Motivation (HBR Emotional Intelligence Series)
Manage your energy, stay motivated. Some work projects excite us--we jump right in and become so engaged and consumed with what we're doing that we run the risk of burning out. Other times, we find ourselves in a slump--everything on our to-do list is something we don't actually want to do. But we don't have to live in either extreme. We can regulate our energy and find ways to get started--and keep going--even on tasks we don't enjoy. We can set boundaries with ourselves and others to make progress and feel accomplished without feeling completely drained. Energy + Motivation explores how to manage your energy productively and boost your motivation even when your stamina falters. With the latest psychological research and practical advice from leading experts, you'll learn how to make choices about how you're using your energy and what and whom you're giving it to, build in breaks and opportunities to recharge, build a force field to protect yourself from those who drain your energy and demotivate you, and psych yourself up even when you're having an off day. How to be human at work. The HBR Emotional Intelligence Series features smart, essential reading on the human side of professional life from the pages of Harvard Business Review.

The Happiness Advantage

release date: Sep 30, 2011
The Happiness Advantage
Most people want to be successful in life. And of course, everyone wants to be happy. When it comes to the pursuit of success and happiness, most people assume the same formula: if you work hard, you will become successful, and once you become successful, then you'll be happy. The only problem is that a decade of cutting-edge research in the field of positive psychology has proven that this formula is backwards. Success does not beget happiness. Based on the largest study ever conducted on happiness and human potential (a survey conducted by the author of more than 1,600 students), Harvard lecturer Shawn Achor shares seven core principles of positive psychology that each one of us can use to improve our performance, grow our careers, and gain a competitive edge at work. He reveals how happiness actually fuels success and performance, not the other way around. Why? Because when we are happier and more positive we are more engaged, creative, resilient to stress, and productive. The Happiness Advantage will appeal to anyone who wants practical advice on how to become happier and also more successful.
