From the Publisher

In How to Have a Good Day, economist and former McKinsey partner Caroline Webb shows readers how to use recent findings from behavioral economics, psychology, and neuroscience to transform our approach to everyday working life.
 
Advances in these behavioral sciences are giving us an ever better understanding of how our brains work, why we make the choices we do, and what it takes for us to be at our best. But it has not always been easy to see how to apply these insights in the real world - until now.
 
In How to Have a Good Day, Webb explains exactly how to apply this science to our daily tasks and routines. She translates three big scientific ideas into step-by-step guidance that shows us how to set better priorities, make our time go further, ace every interaction, be our smartest selves, strengthen our personal impact, be resilient to setbacks, and boost our energy and enjoyment. Through it all, Webb teaches us how to navigate the typical challenges of modern workplaces-from conflict with colleagues to dull meetings and overflowing inboxes-with skill and ease.
 
Filled with stories of people who have used Webb's insights to boost their job satisfaction and performance at work, How to Have a Good Day is the book so many people wanted when they finished Nudge, Blink and Thinking Fast and Slow and were looking for practical ways to apply this fascinating science to their own lives and careers.
 
A remarkable and much-needed book, How to Have a Good Day gives us the tools we need to have a lifetime of good days.

    Q: Election season has polarized my company. Several employees argue over politics, and work relationships are getting strained. How do I keep things civil? A: You don't have to become a dictator to fix your office's cold political climate, but you will need to be a strong leader. And you're right to be concerned: Political commentary is often bad in the workplace, and colleagues who don't respect others' beliefs can create a hostile work environment for everyone.

    You’re Already Good. Here’s How to Step It Up

    THANK YOU FOR BEING LATE: AN OPTIMIST’S GUIDE TO THRIVING IN THE AGE OF ACCELERATIONS by Thomas L. Friedman The globe-trotting New York Times columnist’s most famous book was about the world being flat. This one is all about the world being fast. Globalization, along with breakneck technological and environmental shifts, is driving change at a faster pace than most people, companies, and governments can manage, Friedman writes. The book is a sprawling exploration of the state of the world—awesome, but kind of scary by Friedman’s rendering. His main piece of advice for individuals, corporatio

    Why We’re Addicted to Email—and How to Fix It

    IN TODAY’S DIGITAL WORLD, WE’RE OFTEN expected to be on email at all times. Recent studies show that office workers spend almost a third of their workday reading and responding to messages. This constant connectivity can be harmful: scientists have established a clear link between spending time on email and feeling stress. So why do we do it? Many of us are addicted: checking email activates a primal impulse in our brains to seek out what behavioral psychologists call “random rewards.” Imagine email as a slot machine. Most of the time when we “pull the lever” to check our messages, we get som
