    Tal Ben-Shahar Speaker Biography

    Happiness speaker Tal Ben-Shahar has taught a variety of courses at Harvard University. The courses involved teachings on “Positive Psychology,” and “The Psychology of Leadership”.

    Tal Ben-Shahar teaches ethics, leadership, happiness, resilience, self-esteem, mindfulness, and goal setting executives, the general public, and populations that are at risk. He wrote several books, including Happiness: Life-Changing Lessons from My Barber, and Happier: Learn the Secrets to Daily Joy and Lasting Fulfillment.

    Speaker Tal Ben-Shahar co-founded the Happiness Studies Academy, Maytiv, Potentialife, and Happier TV.

    The Happiness Studies Academy aims to educate leaders who are willing to grow their interpersonal and personal skills. They teach happiness by employing a holistic and interdisciplinary approach. The HSA defines happiness as the experience of wholebeing.

    In order to truly comprehend, seek, and achieve wholebeing, we must adopt an interdisciplinary approach, drawing on philosophy, psychology, history, literature, economics, biology, theology, and many other subjects. This interdisciplinary approach is one that unites rather than dividing people, institutions, and ideas.
    Rich content taught in a unique way contributes to and enlightens people about the concept of happiness, as well as helping to alter the world.

    In 2011, Ben-Shahar co-founded Potentialife, an organization that focuses on improving well-being, to foster positive behavior in people worldwide. This is done by means of behavioral science and technology. Many businesses have found particular popularity in using this method for training leadership abilities in employees. They have also found it useful when running a variety of not-for-profit programs, such as with schools and communities. Because of the new way in which it tracks behavioral change data, Potentialife has started operations in twelve countries. That gives companies and researchers alike the ability to see the impact of positive psychology firsthand.

    Ben-Shahar is also an enthusiastic sportsman. He has a Ph.D. in Organizational Behavior and a Bachelor of Arts degree in Philosophy and Psychology from Harvard.

    Tal Ben-Shahar Keynote Topics

    Positive Psychology, "the scientific study of optimal human functioning," provides practical tools for better living. This new subfield within psychology is unique in that it creates a bridge between the Ivory Tower and Main Street - making rigorous academic ideas easily accessible. In this session, Ben-Shahar discusses current research related to the science of happiness and introduces ideas and tools that can actually make you happier. He covers topics including giving ourselves the permission to be human, simplifying our lives, recognizing the mind-body connection, and re-focusing on the positive.

    Most organizational and individual potential is untapped. Talented individuals are attracted to and thrive in organizations that bring out the best in them. Ben-Shahar discusses how leaders can create a positive environment that nurtures their inherent potential, as well as the potential in those with whom they work. Ben-Shahar presents research and practices from the world of Appreciative Inquiry, and the Strengths-based Approach to Leadership and Organizational Development and illustrates how to blend them into an approach that underpins extraordinary rather than ordinary outcomes, and enables people to reach fulfillment, happiness, wellbeing, and success.

    The work of the leader has become increasingly challenging with the world changing at an unprecedented rate, economic crises, political strife, and market pressures – to name just a few of the moving components affecting the work environment. What are the characteristics that allow certain leaders to flourish in uncertain and constantly changing times? Ben-Shahar looks through the lens of his SHARP model, which focuses on Strengths, Health, Absorption, Relationships, and Purpose to guide the actions of an effective leader. This presentation provides practical tools that allow leaders to bring out the best in themselves, their colleagues, and manage change - even in the most uncertain times.
