Well-being isn’t just a buzzword – it’s an important quality to foster in yourself. According to Dr. Robert Waldinger, it’s more than individual actions but the act of nurturing positive relationships with others that can support health and happiness in life and the workplace. As the current director of the longest-running study of human happiness and flourishing…ever, he’s got the science to prove it! 

In his new 6-part class with Big Think+, Dr. Waldinger teaches us how to deepen connections at work, build community and spontaneity in remote environments and increase happiness and resilience in the workplace. 

We’re excited to see how Robert and other world-class Big Think+ business minds can help promote well-being at work. Check out a sample from Robert’s class and request a full demo below for more detail on Big Think+ Leadership.
