"With cutting-edge research, penetrating insights, and practical examples, Shawn Achor describes a new conception of 'success, ' and in doing so, reveals exciting new strategies we can use to meet our highest potential."--Gretchen Rubin, bestselling author of The Happiness Project

"A vibrant book on how to bring out the best in others--and how they can bring out the best in us."--Adam Grant, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Think Again and host of the podcast WorkLife

In a world that thrives on competition and individual achievement, we're measuring and pursuing potential incorrectly. Pursuing success in isolation--pushing others away as we push ourselves too hard--not only limits our potential but makes us more stressed and disconnected than ever.

Harvard-trained researcher Shawn Achor reveals a better approach. With exciting new research combining neuroscience and psychology with Big Data, Achor shows that our potential is not limited by what we alone can achieve. Instead, it is determined by how we complement, contribute to, and benefit from the abilities and achievements of people around us.

When we--as individuals, leaders, and parents--chase only individual achievement, we leave vast sources of potential untapped. But once we put "others" back into the equation, and work to make others better, we ignite a Virtuous Cycle of cascading successes that amplify our own.

The dramatic shifts in how we approach work today demand an equally dramatic shift in our approach to success. In Big Potential, Achor draws on cutting-edge original research as well as his work with nearly half of the Fortune 100 and with places like NASA, the NFL and the NBA, and offers a new path to thriving in the modern world.
