The Joy of Leadership Summary

The Joy of Leadership: How Positive Psychology Can Maximize Your Impact (and Make You Happier) in a Challenging World by Tal Ben-Shahar

Think of the last time you were at your best and working in the zone. Now compare that to all the time you've spent just going through the motions. How would you quantify the difference between the two in terms of how you felt and what you produced? Would you rate it as a 5% difference. . . a 50% difference? Most people would describe the gulf between those two states of being as vast-as deep and wide as the Grand Canyon. For quality of experience, engagement, productivity, and just the sheer joy of living, the majority of people asked to rate the difference between flourishing and floundering found it to be around a factor of 10.

In their work with managers and executives at leading companies around the world, authors Tal Ben-Shahar and Angus Ridgway have identified a select group of individuals who consistently perform at their peak, and who make work seem effortless and working with them feel easy. The name they've given to those lucky few is 10X Leaders. You know who they are. They're the team leaders who bring out the best in everyone. They're the senior managers who drive growth and innovation. They're the dream bosses, dream partners, and dream colleagues. There's a good chance you've encountered at least one 10X leader in your career-you're probably thinking of one right now. And you wondered how they did it.

Dr. Ben-Shahar and Mr. Ridgway believe they know the answer. They have identified the core characteristics, behaviors, and cognitive styles that all 10X leaders share. Even better, they've developed a way for virtually anyone to cultivate those traits and ways of thinking in themselves to become happier, more effective, and more successful.

In this powerful new book they describe their revolutionary SHARP (Strength, Health, Absorption, Relationships, and Purpose) program for becoming a 10X leader. They tell you the true stories of people at organizations around the globe who've become more effective by learning to use these performance multipliers. And they offer proven strategies for mastering those characteristics and habits for lasting change-the kind of change that can bring you greater fulfilment and success, not just at work, but in every area of your life.
