Talk given to a PMI-H group of Project Managers. A 60-minute talk on how 3 streams of happiness (positive psychology) can generate success. (1) pleasure/positive emotions, (2) passion/engagement, (3) purpose/meaning. There are 3 BIG IDEAS - (1) You don't have to bring happiness (human flourishing) to work here—but it helps. (2) Happiness (human flourishing) helps people get things done. Unhappiness hinders people from getting things done. (3) Happiness (human flourishing) is a precursor to success more than it is a consequence of it!
