Are You Career Positive?

Happiness1Do you have a list of your workplace successes handy in the top drawer of your mind? If you don’t, you may be missing out on a powerful source of energy in your work life. Most of us have a strong tendency to forget to “stop and smell the roses” within our careers – (I am guilty, as well) – and this can create a success paradigm that we can never entirely fulfill.

This week on LinkedIn, I explore the fascinating movement of Positive Psychology, as applied to our work lives. (Find the post here.) Based on the simply brilliant TED Talk of Shaun Achor, we travel the path of potential well-being and success, through the process of learning to be a bit kinder to ourselves and others around us.
