Unlocking Happiness at Work and Life
We train for marathons, we study before an exam, we practice before a driver's test, we pack before a trip - pretty much everything in life comes with an element of preparation. But with stress, despite its inevitability, we remain unprepared. We just let the worst come at us, then flail around badly, ineffectively, only to repeat this process over again.
Based on Jennifer's award-winning and best-selling book of the same name, this inspirational talk shares how one of the scariest six weeks of Jennifer's life would be a catalyst for future happiness. After dedicating her career to researching post-traumatic growth, Jennifer shares which micro-shifts need to be made daily, to build the habits, that embed the behaviors, to improve health, happiness, and high-performance at work and in life. Combining humor and storytelling with scientific research and real-world examples, Jennifer leaves her audience with a psychological fitness regime and the tools to flourish and reframe, even on their worst days.
Two-minute daily habits that will build hope, efficacy, resilience, optimism, gratitude, empathy and mindfulness - backed by research as the traits exhibited by the happiest, healthiest, highest-performing people in the world
The best small shifts we can make at work to improve performance
