Happiness in one aspect of our life can positively impact our satisfaction within other domains of our life. The opposite also rings true. Today's generation of working people have often been called the generation who want it all. But can we really have it all? And at what cost to our and others' happiness? Flourishing in Life, Work and Careers explores ways in which contemporary working people can thrive in a complex, volatile and uncertain world. Combining both research and practice, the contributors of this book cover all bases from individual wellbeing, family and work, to career experiences and leadership. They conclude by providing the reader with tools to combine what they have learnt and apply it to their lives. Researchers and PhD students interested in positive psychology and related disciplines will find this to be an intriguing book. Human resource managers and human resource development consultants will also find the tools in this book useful for their work.
