You think being Successful will make you Happy? Science suggests it´s the other way round [Current Research]

Once I´ll reach x (…put in one of your personal or professional goals…) I´ll be happy. This is a popular equation many people believe in. It´s promoted by a lot of self-help books as well. And it´s wrong – or at least incomplete. One of the central tenets in Positive Psychology is that happiness (positive emotions) actually lead to success. Researchers Julia K. Boehm and Sonja Lyubomirsky gathered the extant scientific evidence supporting this hypothesis for an influential review article in 2008. Ten…

A Definition of Positive Interventions

The community of positive psychology researchers has yet to agree on a generally accepted definition of positive interventions. While there are several definitions available that display a considerable overlap, there is still a lot of space for conceptual clarification (Parks & Biswas-Diener, 2013). I posit the following definition: A positive intervention is an evidence-based, intentional act or series of actions (behavioral strategy) meant to increase (away from zero) that which causes or constitutes well-being and flourishing in non-clinical populations.

Wir haben mit Nico Rose im Rahmen unseres HR Gipfels im Grand Hotel Heiligendamm zusammengearbeitet. Sein Vortrag zum Thema „Wie viel Demokratie verträgt Führung im Unternehmen?“ war nach Auswertung des Feedbacks einer der besten der Veranstaltung.
