Happiness at Work: Mindfulness, Analysis and Well-being (Paperback)R. Anand (author)
- We can order this
A handful of stressors and internal psychodynamics derail the happiness of normal people like you and me. Fortunately, rigorous science and psychology can be applied to this problem.
Happiness at Work: Mindfulness, Analysis and Well-being tells you what to apply, how to apply and why it works. It is utterly simplistic to wish away external stressors. However, are you taking the best decisions about them? Everyone gets some of their decisions wrong, aver the behavioral economists, as universal distortions are always at work. We can deploy some decision-making paradigms to minimize these distortions. We are beset with individual distortions too, as we are wired with certain tendencies and default modes. As soon as you understand the source and dynamics of these individual distortions, you would begin to heal. Your everyday errors, interpersonal interactions, nighttime dreams and body language, all give useful clues to this wiring. On top of this insight, you can build a fine temperament of mindfulness about your body, mind and interactions as well as your entire life. This would lead to peak emotional and mental wellness. Even as professionals leading busy lives, you would see the signs of progress yourself, in weeks and months. This is what `happiness at work' is all about.

`Anand has explored the theme of happiness in a fascinating manner, building upon psychological concepts and presenting real-world dimensions. This is an ideal playbook for all urban professionals as they embark on critical decision-making junctures several times in their career trajectories and go through a vortex of emotions. This is where Anand's book delivers a solid impact and makes an exhilarating read. This book in my opinion is a must-pick as a "transition coach" for all professionals dealing with high-stakes personal decisions in their careers.' -- Tarunesh Madan, * Partner, Amrop-Executive Search, Board Practice and External Successors (Amrop is the world's largest retained executive search firm) *

`As a musician and simultaneously a corporate executive, both worlds' come together when I hear the RJ on a popular channel sympathizing on a Monday morning with the weary whitecollar worker. The powerful concepts in this book should ideally be used by readers to obtain insights into their current state. They can then take the steps towards happiness and fulfilment that most of us yearn for but almost never discover. I firmly believe that holistic happiness and an ability to experience our world in its entirety are precious gifts we can discover as Anand takes us on this journey.' -- Krishnan Chatterjee, * Musician, and Head of Marketing, Indian Subcontinent, SAP *

The author has worked hard to explore multiple areas of scientific research for baselining, exploring and enhancing individual happiness and well-being. The many threads of being well that this book weaves is certain to attract future work in this area.' -- Dhananjay Singh, * Director General, National Human Resources Development Network (NHRDN) *
