Format:Kindle Edition
I have had the pleasure of working with Suzanne on our MSc Applied Positive Psychology course. This is an incredible book. Grounded in some seriously academic references, it mixes day to day practice in business and coaching with Psychology and well being research. It is throughly easy to read and suggests ideas for coping, stress management and career progression amongst others, in a very subtle and non patronising way (which I have found rare in this genre).

Being from a background in inner city secondary education and now lecturing I was able to access the book and find it very useful. I can highly recommend this to any educator, business or young professional. Positive Failure: Understand how embracing failure is a tool for development

This book does an excellent job of applying research from positive psychology in a business environment. It is easy to read and is packed with practical, evidence-based actions that promote a healthy work life balance. I have personally picked up many useful tips that will help me with changing my mindset, decision making and working effectively with others. I was also really impressed with the number of topics covered such as, flow, positive emotions, time perspectives, luck... so there is something for everyone! Overall, this book does a fantastic job of harnessing the latest scientific research in order to improve well-being and being more motivated and engaged at work.

5.0 out of 5 stars A framework for positive action 8 July 2013
The book provides a framework that can be utilised as a complete holistic approach, or the reader can select from individual modules according to their personal need and focus. It blends scientific evidence and latest research with some well established concepts, enabling the reader to make chocies and determine practical action for themselves. An excellent vehicle for provoking thought, reflection and for building concrete action and next steps. I have managed various teams for the majority of my business career, and I can thoroughly recommend it for professionals and managers alike.

5.0 out of 5 stars Inspiring and thought provoking 4 July 2013
By MrsH
I have known and worked with Suzanne for over 10 years and was lucky enough to receive an early copy of this book.

I am quite sceptical about 'self-help' books - so often they seem to have been written by theorists with no experience of the real world. By contrast, Suzanne backs up her ideas with both the latest research and anecdotes about her own experiences working for large organisations, both good and bad!

Great Days at Work is an inspiring and very readable book. I came away with practical and achievable ideas for how to ensure that I get the most out of work and have noticed the results already, thank you Suzanne!
