“In the Introduction, I mentioned the impressive meta-analysis of happiness research that brought together the results of over 200 scientific studies on nearly 275,000 people – and found that happiness leads to success in nearly every domain of our lives, including marriage, health, friendship, community involvement, creativity, and, in particular, our jobs, careers and businesses.”

A children's book, titled Ripple's Effect, is also available. It's a delightful tale, set in an aquarium, which tells the tale of a brave dolphin named Ripple who teaches a shark to smile. It's never to early to set your children on the path to success.
Increased happiness also improves the performance of every job..
“If a study has proven how CEOs can become 15 percent more productive, or how managers can improve customer satisfaction by 42 percent, then I think the people in the trenches should know about it, not just a handful of academics.” -The Happiness Advantage P. 23
“Optimistic salespeople outsell their pessimistic counterparts by 56 percent.”
A number of online corporate products are available as well as a scientifically validated material tool called the Success Scale that helps us effectively assess where you stand on three key measures of positivity: work optimism, provision of social support, and outcome mastery. Use it as an add-on to engagement surveys, pre-employment hires, or as a benchmark test across departments. Shawn Achor, and other positive psychology presenters, are also available for speaking engagements.
