The little book of lykke : the Danish search for the world's happiest people / Wiking, Meik
"A practical guide to what makes us happy, from the CEO of the Happiness Research Instititue in Copenhagen and bestselling author of The Little Book of Hygge. We all know Denmark is the happiest country in the world--but this doesn't make it perfect. Happiness isn't exclusively Danish. Nor is it just eating pastries, lighting candles, and practising hygge. Happiness is something available to all, wherever you are, and whatever your means. Starting from the Happiness Research Institute in Copenhagen, Meik Wiking, probably the happiest man in the world, travels across the globe on a quest to uncover the secrets of the very happiest people from Dubai to Rio de Janeiro, taking back to his native country their tips, tricks, and unique approaches to a fulfilled life. Exploring the happiness gap for parents, how much money you really need to buy happiness, and why--luckily for us--the expectation of kissing Rachel Weiss is better than the real thing, Meik brings together a global roadmap for happiness with his trademark wit. Weaving together original research and personal anecdotes, The Little Book of Lykke gives us a new approach to achieving everyday happiness."--

The art of active listening : how people at work feel heard, valued, and understood / Younger, Heather R.

Leaders can achieve better working relationships, higher loyalty, and higher revenues simply by changing their listening strategy. Organizations are caught up in the Great Resignation because team members have not felt heard for a long time. Even with renewed focus on human resources and DEI initiatives, we aren't hearing each other. Heather Younger says what we need is a new change model for organizational listening. She illustrates five steps in the "cycle of listening" in this book that will help break our current listening cycles so we can implement one that honors all parties and works for the long haul.

The gap and the gain : the high achievers' guide to happiness, confidence, and success / Hardy, Benjamin

"Most people, especially highly ambitious people, are unhappy because of what they measure themselves against. We all have an ideal, which is like a moving target always out of reach. When we measure ourselves against our ideal, we're in "The Gap." However, when we measure ourselves against our previous selves-the person we were when we set our goals and ideals-we will be in "The Gain." In "The Gain" we can more clearly see the progress we've made, and therefore will experience the happiness, confidence, and satisfaction that come from achieving-positive, powerful emotions that will motivate us to pursue new goals and ultimately become increasingly successful"--Provided by publisher.

Microjoys : finding hope (especially) when life is not okay / Spiegel, Cyndie.

"Bighearted and hopeful. Unflinchingly honest and healing. A profound compendium of intimate, inspiring essays and thoughtful prompts that will keep you afloat in difficult times and sustain you in the everyday. Microjoys are a practice of discerning hope and joy in each and every moment of our lives. They are accessible to all of us, at all times, if we can hone the ability to look for them. They are the hidden wisdom, subtle treasures, and ordinary delights that surround us: A polka-dot glass on a thrift store shelf. A cat that you didn't know you needed to adopt. A dear friend's kind message at just the right time. The neighborhood spice shop. A beloved family tradition. The simple quietude of being in love. A chai tea recipe. Cyndie Spiegel first began taking note of microjoys during the most difficult year of her life-when she experienced back-to-back unprecedented and devastating losses-and she found that these small moments of hope helped her move through each day with a semblance of comfort and a bit more joy. Through beautifully written narrative essays and prompts, Cyndie shares the microjoys that have kept her going through tough times and shows us how we can learn to see the microjoys in our own lives. Microjoys don't change the truth of loss or make grief any more convenient, but they allow us to momentarily touch joy, keeping us buoyed and moving forward, one step at a time"--Provided by publisher.
