Shawn Achor Headlines MSCA 2016 Opening Session

Most individuals follow this formula: if you work harder, you will be more successful, and then you will be happy. But, this formula is scientifically backward. A decade of research shows that first training your brain to be positive at work actually fuels greater success.

By researching top performers at Harvard, the world's largest banks, and Fortune 500 companies, author and researcher Shawn Achor discovered patterns that create a "happiness advantage" for positive outliers - the highest performers at the company. In the MSCA 2016 Opening Session, Achor will join us to offer guidance on the connection between happiness and success.

Don't miss out on the opportunity to discover the connections that will take you and your team to a higher level of success. You must be registered for MSCA 2016 to attend this event, so sign-up today at
