Available Formats: Keynote (Virtual or In-Person); Breakout Session


Program Description:

Over 225 studies show that the benefits of being happy range from being healthier, making more money, and being better leaders.

When workplaces invest in creating happy cultures and employees in their personal happiness, there’s a literal Return On Investment (ROI).

So, if happiness is the goal, why is being happier so challenging? The problem is that we see happiness as one emotion. But as we all know, happiness is more complicated than that for workplace cultures and individuals. The real and practical way to be happier is to expand your definition of happiness and manage your Happiness Zappers.

In this interactive program, Pamela empowers audiences to discover the happiness they didn’t even know they had, better manage the experiences that zap their happiness, and learn how happiness does and should change.

“Want to know why we find happy people annoying? Because they don’t fully understand what happiness is. They think it’s about ALWAYS being happy, upbeat, cheerful, and chipper. So, they fake it. The faking is what annoys us. Pamela has given us a way to be happy and to mean it. Practically. Realistically. Authentically. And while we will not always be happy in every moment, at least we can be happy consistently and with meaning. Give this book to someone as a gift and you could be giving them the gift of real happiness. Who knows? Maybe that person is yourself.”
