This month I’m recommending a book called Broadcasting Happiness by Michelle Gielan.
We are all “broadcasters” and are constantly transmitting information to the people around us. The messages we choose to broadcast can either create success or hold us back. By using the principles and strategies highlighted in Broadcasting Happiness, I’m confident that you will not only be happier and more successful, but become a better leader impacting others in a positive way.
New research from the fields of positive psychology and neuroscience shows that small shifts in the way we communicate can create big ripple effects on business and educational outcomes, including 31 percent higher productivity, 25 percent better performance ratings, 37 percent higher sales, and 23 percent lower levels of stress.
Broadcasting Happiness will help you:
– Inoculate your brain against stress and negativity
– Drive success by leading a conversation or communication with positivity
– Rewrite debilitating thought patterns and turn them into fuel for resilience and growth
– Deal with negative people in a way that lessens their power
– Share bad news more effectively
– Create and sustain a positive culture at work and home
– Help people move from negative to positive in seconds
Broadcasting Happiness showcases how real individuals and organizations have used these techniques to achieve results that include increasing revenues by hundreds of millions of dollars, raising a school district’s graduation rate by 45 percent, and shifting family gatherings from toxic to thriving.
Broadcasting Happiness will show you how to be personally happier as well as spread happiness to all those around you!
