BROADCASTING HAPPINESS

The Science of Igniting and Sustaining Positive Change

BY MICHELLE GIELAN

WE ALL ARE BROADCASTERS

We are all broadcasters. As managers, colleagues, parents and friends, we are constantly transmitting information to the people around us, and the messages we choose to broadcast create success or hold us back.

What's your broadcast?

What we broadcast predicts success.

New research from the fields of positive psychology and neuroscience shows that small shifts in the way we communicate can create big ripple effects on business and educational outcomes, including 31 percent higher productivity, 25 percent better performance ratings, 37 percent higher sales, and 23 percent lower levels of stress.

In Broadcasting Happiness, Michelle Gielan, former national CBS News anchor turned positive psychology researcher, shows you how changing your broadcast changes your power by sharing jaw-dropping stories and incredible research.

Learn Michelle’s simple research-based communication habits that have been featured in her PBS program Inspire Happiness and Oprah’s 21 Days to Happiness class.

Broadcasting Happiness showcases how real individuals and organizations have used these techniques to achieve results that include increasing revenues by hundreds of millions of dollars, raising a school district’s graduation rate by 45 percent, and shifting family gatherings from toxic to thriving.

Changing your broadcast can change your life, your success, and the lives of others around you. Broadcasting Happiness will show you how!
