Shawn Achor is the author of the #1 national bestseller, The Happiness Advantage. He spent over a decade at Harvard University where he won over a dozen distinguished teaching awards for his work. He graduated magna cum laude from Harvard and earned a Masters in Christian and Buddhist ethics. In 2006, he was named Head Teaching Fellow for Positive Psychology, which eclipsed Intro Economics as the most popular course at Harvard.

In 2007, Mr. Achor founded Good Think Inc. to share his research with the world. Subsequently, he has lectured or researched in 49 countries, speaking to CEOs in China, school children in South Africa, doctors in Dubai, and farmers in Zimbabwe.

When the global economy collapsed in 2008, Shawn Achor was immediately called in as an expert by the world's largest banks to help restart forward progress. Subsequently, Shawn has spoken in 45 countries to a wide variety of audiences: bankers on Wall Street, students in Dubai, CEOs in Zimbabwe. Mr. Achor’s research on happiness and human potential has received attention from the Harvard Business Review, New York Times, Forbes, CNN, and NPR.

Shawn Achor has now become the world’s leading expert on the connection between happiness and success. In 2012, his research on happiness made the cover of Harvard Business Review. His TED talk is one of the most popular of all time with over 10 million views, and he has a new lecture airing on PBS called The Happiness Advantage.
