Bio

I am the author of The Happiness Advantage. I spent over a decade at Harvard University, and in 2006, I was Head Teaching Fellow for "Positive Psychology." In 2007, I founded Good Think Inc. to share my research with a wider population. When the global economy collapsed in 2008, I was called in as an expert by the world's largest banks to help restart forward progress. Subsequently, I have spoken in 45 countries to a wide variety of audiences: bankers on Wall Street, students in Dubai, CEOs in Zimbabwe. My research on happiness and human potential have received attention from the Harvard Business Review, New York Times, Forbes, CNN, and NPR. I am currently releasing a training DVD on The Happiness Advantage for corporate audiences. I also recently launched the I Journal application for the iphone and Android.
