   schema:reviewBody ""Happiness at Work: Maximizing Your Psychological Capital For Success reveals that the happier you are, the more you'll achieve, yielding tangible benefits to you and your organization." "Sharing the results of her four-year research journey in simple, jargon-free language, Pryce-Jones exposes unexpected secrets about being happy at work. Moreover, she provides readers with the information, knowledge, and skills to make the most of the nearly 100,000 hours most of us will spend in our jobs over a lifetime." "Pryce-Jones explains what psychological capital and happiness at work are and how you can go about getting more of both. Along the way, she demystifies the latest research, illustrating her findings with a fascinating array of over 80 revealing interviews with people allover the world: business leaders and politicians, particle physicists and philosophers, sheep farmers and bankers, to name just a few. The result is a unique strategy with five components that build your happiness at work and help you to achieve your potential. Timely and insightful, Happiness at Work uncovers what really works at work and gives you the tools and motivation to create not just a happier tomorrow, but a happier today."--Jacket." ;
