It would be impossible to encapsulate all that Shawn Achor has accomplished in his life in a simple blog post. However, since it was announced today that Fibernetics president John Stix and Achor have formed a partnership for John to spread their combined message in Canada, we’re going to try.
He is the New York Times bestselling author of the Happiness Advantage: The Seven Principles of Positive Psychology That Fuel Success and Performance at Work. Based on his experience working at Harvard University, Shawn’s message and mission can be expressed simply as, happiness is a choice.
He is a regular guest of Oprah (ya, that Oprah) on a number of her programs and is currently hosting an online series on her network called 21 Days to a Happier Life.
He is also the Shawn Achor who’s Ted Talk, “The Happy Secret to Better Work” has been views more than 11-million times.
Shawn is renowned as a public speaker communicating his message of the Science of Happiness to business leaders, employees and to everyday people with an overall mission to improve their quality of work, and life. But Shawn can’t be everywhere all the time. That is why his alliance with John Stix is such a big deal. There are few who are capable of carrying that message to the masses, and having John and Shawn aligned is, what John described as, “One of the biggest honours of my life.”
