Happiness Advantage Kilyx Leadership Symposium

Leverage the science of happiness to retrain your brain to capitalize on positivity.


Work hard and you will be successful. Once you become successful, then you’ll be happy. Right? According to positive psychologists at Harvard and other leading universities, the answer is “no.”


What their research reveals is that the idea that success creates happiness is backwards. That is, the research shows that “...happiness is the precursor to success.” In his Happiness Advantage best-selling author Shawn Achor writes that, “data abounds showing that happy workers have higher levels of productivity, produce higher sales, perform better in leadership positions, and receive higher performance ratings and higher pay.”


The research shows that people who are happy are also more successful than those who are not. Shawn writes,

  • “Optimistic salespeople outsell their pessimistic counterparts by 56%.”
  • Sales people at MetLife “...with more optimistic styles sold 37% more insurance than those with pessimistic ones, and the most optimistic agents actually sold 88% more than the most pessimistic ones. Furthermore, agents who were more optimistic were half as likely to quit as were the pessimists.” Based on this research, MetLife “...decided to hire a special force of agents picked solely on the basis of explanatory style. And it paid off. The next year, these agents outsold their more pessimistic counterparts by 21%; during the second year, by 57%.”


Here’s the critical point: happiness can be learned and increased. Here is the promise: in so doing, more good things will ripple through your life, in the lives of people around you, and in the organizations and communities in which you participate.
