The mission of the Happiness Studies Academy is to educate leaders who are themselves dedicated to personal, interpersonal, and communal flourishing.

The Certificate in Happiness Studies (CiHS) program is a year-long online program that explores happiness through the lens of the different disciplines—including psychology and philosophy, as well as history, literature, theology, business, economics, physiology and art.

The program comprises two courses:
1. Introduction to Happiness Studies
2. Facilitating Happiness

Both courses include a healthy dose of theory and practice. However, the emphasis in the first course is on knowledge and understanding (what happiness is and what a field of Happiness Studies is all about) while the emphasis in the second course is on tools and techniques (how to generate happiness on the individual, interpersonal, organizational, and national level). The first course provides an overview, a survey, of the field; the second course provides some of the field’s greatest practical hits.

Welcome back to the event everybody, I’m so happy today. We’re going to be talking with Ben or pardon me, Tal Ben-Shahar. And he is the author and lecturer who we’re just, again, really, really happy to have here. He taught two of the largest classes in Harvard, university’s history, positive psychology, and the psychology of leadership. Now, I guess you can see why we have him on our event, because these are incredibly important things to the health coaching world. So, today Tal consults and lectures around the world to executives in multinational corporations, the general public, and at risk populations. I’m looking forward to delving into what he means by at risk populations. And the topic he lectures on includes leadership, and happiness, education, innovation, ethics, self-esteem, resilience, goal, setting, and mindfulness. 

Again, I think you see why we’re featuring Tal today. And his books have been translated into more than 25 languages and have appeared on best seller lists around the world. Tal’s also a serial entrepreneur. I’ve heard that term a lot lately. He’s the co founder and chief learning officer of Happiness Studies Academy, Potential Life, Maytiv and Happier.tv. So, he’s an avid sportsman, Tal won the U.S intercollegiate and Israeli national squash championships and today for exercise swims, dances, and practices, yoga. He obtained his PhD in organizational behavior and a Bachelor’s in philosophy and psychology from Harvard. So, again, I’m just tickled to have Dr. Tal here today. And hello, Dr. Tal, can you tell us a little bit about your background and such?
