Publisher's Summary

In How to Have a Good Day, economist and former McKinsey partner Caroline Webb tells listeners how to use recent findings from behavioural economics, psychology and neuroscience to transform their approach to everyday working life.
Advances in these behavioral sciences are giving us ever better understanding of how our brains work, why we make the choices we do and what it takes for us to be smart and savvy. But it's not always been easy to see how to apply these insights in the workplace - until now.
In How to Have a Good Day, Webb explains how three big scientific ideas can help us be at our best every day. She shows us exactly how to apply this science to our plans, tasks and conversations in step-by-step guidance that allows us to: set better priorities; make the hours go further; turn every interaction into a success; strengthen our personal impact; be resilient in the face of setbacks; and sustain our energy over the course of the day. Webb teaches us how to be at our best under pressure and gives us specific tools to tackle common work challenges - from conflict with colleagues to dull meetings and packed inboxes.
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 audiobook 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 firmly delivers on its promise, showing us all how to have a lifetime of good days.

Good Book => Good Day

I wandered into this book from the cognitive neuroscience direction. I don't tend to seek out "help you organise" books that simply report stuff that sounds good to the writer.But this one's different.

It talks about interesting findings in behavioural science, often with memorable examples where people verifiably behave in a ways which you might not expect; then it suggests how this might be used to make your day a little bit better...moving from mental trap to mental treasure.

There is SO MUCH good advice that I will struggle to apply all of it... But it's significantly changed the way I approach my day tactically, and changed the way I think about it strategically.

Thank you, Caroline, for an excellent book!

struggled with the narration

The books has lots of great ideas but it's just not packaged in the right way. Caroline Webb narrates the book but she struggles with storytelling and after a while I get lost. sorry I'm being honest. If you're new to this type of book then try it but I think other titles deliver it better.
