We are all broadcasters. We are constantly broadcasting information to others, even if we don’t say a word. Managers broadcast to their teams during meetings. Team members broadcast to clients. Clients broadcast to potential clients. And the messages we choose to broadcast shape others’ views of the world.

Our words can move other people from a fear-based mindset in which they see obstacles as insurmountable, to a positive mindset where they see that change is possible, get unstuck, and take action. What makes the difference is what we choose to broadcast. Using scientifically proven communication strategies to ripple out positive change to others, we increase their happiness and success at work, as well as our own, instantly making us more effective leaders.

New research from the fields of positive psychology and neuroscience shows that small shifts to the way we communicate can create big ripple effects on business outcomes, including 19% greater accuracy, 31% higher productivity, 25% greater performance ratings, 37% higher sales, and 23% lower levels of stress.

Drawing from her experience as a national CBS News anchor, a positive psychology researcher, and her work with many of the top Fortune 500 companies, Michelle Gielan shares the strategies that have created results in Broadcasting Happiness.

In this book, you’ll learn how to choose the right message, get through to others, especially during moments of high stress, build resilience in the midst of challenges, and use non-verbal communication to your advantage. And, most important, you’ll understand why positivity is the most underutilized resource available.

After returning home from a long day at work, start your evening off with your spouse (the second you walk through the door) with a positive part of your day or ask about something positive that happened in theirs, as opposed to the all-too-common, “I’m exhausted. Today was quite a day.” Your power lead could even be a quiet kiss with someone you love, followed by a sincere, “I’m so glad to see your face.” You never know what might happen if you start off with that!
