About this event

Conventional wisdom holds that if we work hard we will be more successful, and if we are more successful, then we’ll be happy. If we can just find that great job, win that next promotion, lose those five pounds, happiness will follow. But recent discoveries in the field of positive psychology have shown that this formula is actually backward: Happiness fuels success, not the other way around. When we are positive, our brains become more engaged, creative, motivated, energetic, resilient, and productive at work. Join us for a culture conversation where our speakers will share their experiences on how to create happiness in the workplace. Each speaker will bring a unique perspective to the conversation, sharing personal stories, best practices, and company trends. We know events are always more fun with others, so grab a friend, enjoy some snacks on us, and network with other culture heroes.
