Motivational speaker to present keys to work-life balance at NAFA conference

Motivational speaker Shawn Archor will lead a discussion on the keys to home and work-life happiness at the upcoming NAFA Fleet Management Assn. 2015 Institute & Expo. The event will be held April 14-17, in Orlando, FL.

“Ninety percent of your long-term happiness is predicted not by the external world, but by the way your brain processes the world.” People who are happy are shown to be more effective and more creative at work and at home, but how does one get to happiness if it is purportedly dependent on one’s approach?,” says Archor.

According to NAFA, Archor (at right) has keyed in on the field of positive psychology, whereby one’s relationship to the world is dependent on their viewpoint of it, not from the world’s cumulative effect on the individual…or, how you view the world affects the world and your relationship with it. Happy people, engaged individuals, are more likely to be creative, productive, enthusiastic, and able to accept change, challenges, and stress.

“NAFA wanted a motivational presenter for the opening day of the Institute & Expo, but more than that, we wanted someone who would inspire and put everyone in a great mood,” said NAFA’s Chief Executive Officer, Phillip E. Russo, CAE.  “Shawn Achor is not only an inspirational talent with interesting ideas, but he’s incredibly funny. The core of his work is of the importance of happiness in our lives, and we’re confident that Shawn will inform, entertain, and set a phenomenal tone for the conference.”

Shawn Achor is the CEO of Good Think Inc., a Cambridge-based consulting firm that researches positive outliers — people who are well above average — to understand where human potential, success and happiness intersect. Based on his research and 12 years of experience at Harvard, he clearly and humorously describes how to increase happiness and meaning, raise success rates and profitability, and create positive transformations that ripple into more successful cultures. Shawn is the author of The Happiness Advantage (2010) and Before Happiness (2013), both of which are New York Times best-sellers.
