TED talk by Shawn Achor
Shawn Achor is a highly respected academic and consultant. He focuses on positive outliers—to understand more about people who are well above average. As he says in the talk “if we study what is merely average, we will remain merely average”
Author of the highly successful The Happiness Advantage, his TED talk has been watched almost 15 million times. Arguing that success does not create happiness, Achor sets out how we can actively increase our levels of positivity, which he has found to be the major determinant of performance.
