According to Jessica Pryce-Jones, happiness at work is not some abstract idea but a practical reality with a clear impact on you and your workplace. This book reveals that the happier you are the more you'll achieve, yielding tangible benefits to you and your organization.

Jessica Pryce-Jones is CEO and founder of the Oxford-based consultancy iOpener, which enables people to improve their performance and organizations to develop sustainably. A regular speaker and media commentator, she featured in the BBC series Making Slough Happy and CNN's special on happiness at work. Pryce-Jones teaches and coaches leaders at London Business School, Chicago Booth, Saïd Business School in Oxford, and Judge Business School in Cambridge. Clients include multinationals in banking, IT, health, publishing, and engineering as well as the public and not-for-profit sectors.

Sharing the results of her four-year research journey in simple, jargon-free language, Pryce-Jones exposes unexpected secrets about being happy at work. Moreover, she provides readers with the information, knowledge, and skills to make the most of the nearly 100,000 hours most of us will spend in our jobs over a lifetime. Pryce-Jones explains what psychological capital and happiness at work are and how you can go about getting more of both. Along the way, she demystifies the latest research, illustrating her findings with a fascinating array of over 80 revealing interviews with people all over the world: business leaders and politicians, particle physicists and philosophers, sheep farmers and bankers, to name just a few. The result is a unique strategy with five components that build your happiness at work and help you to achieve your potential. Timely and insightful, Happiness at Work uncovers what really works at work and gives you the tools and motivation to create not just a happier tomorrow, but a happier today.
