Overview

Learn to create resilience and happiness no matter what’s going on in your life

In these tough times, there are few people who are completely happy with the current conditions. From business executives to the everyday Joe or Jane, everyone seems to be going through a rough economic and personal crunch. But acclaimed business school Professor Srikumar Rao says that we can learn to create joy no matter what else may be going on around us.

Rao shows you that it isn't the negative thing that happens to you that causes your unhappiness, it's how you see it. Happiness at Work is a thought-provoking new title that moves the mind away from negativity and forces you to resist labeling situations as "bad", but rather seeing them as neutral.

Happiness at Work provides:

  • Surprising ways of looking at change and problem-solving
  • Exercises that shift one’s perspective

Learn the vital wisdom necessary to achieving a joyful, successful life as you define it through greater resilience and a strong inner core. Get it now with The Happiness Choice.

"Follow Srikumar Rao’s instructions and you will enjoy the journey to more happiness and meaning in your life, no matter what!"
--Marshall Goldsmith, author of What Got You Here Won’t Get You There

"Happiness at Work brings new understanding of the essential role happiness plays in workplace learning and performance. Srikumar Rao’s guidelines for our journey to leadership include aspects rarely explored and newly significant."
--Frances Hesselbein, chairman and founding president, Leader to Leader Institute/Drucker Foundation for Nonprofit Management

"This book is a treasure chest full of wisdom. Each and every one of its 34 chapters introduced me to or reminded me of a very important principle for living a happy and successful life."
--Jack Canfield, co-creator of the Chicken Soup for the Soul® series and coauthor of The Success Principles

    Happy at Work? YES !!! It is possible!!

    Dr. Rao has written a very important book. I never believed it was possible to be happy at work. After reading this book, that thought has changed. I now believe you can absolutely be happy, no matter where you work! Thank you to Dr. Rao for helping me to finally see the light.

    One of the best book's in it's category

    The cover of 'Happiness at Work' is deceiving. The title is set above a pair of shiny black men's dress shoes with comically large springs. It looks like it's about jump-starting your career, which really didn't interest me.

    Luckily, I stumbled upon a wonderful interview of the author, Srikumar Rao, in a podcast by the Greater Good Science Center at the University of California, Berkeley. After reading the book, I am happy to report the content is much more interesting than the cover suggests. 'Happiness at Work' is a step-by step manual on the inner workings of happiness.

    This is a book of solid steps we can take and if practiced mindfully they will not only lead to more happiness but make us better people.

    Here are a few steps to finding happiness:
    - Stop labeling things "good" or "bad"
    - Invest in the process, not the outcome
    - Life is a stage and we are the actor, not the character.
    - Changing our mental model (our beliefs) will change our world.

    Rao tells stories and fables that help explain these steps further and his gentle, polite tone throughout the book makes it a pleasure to read. This is one of the best book's in it's category. It's message is an inspiration for those who are looking improve their life, find happiness and to be a better person.
