Barbara Fredrickson is a social psychologist and researcher on positive emotions. Her recent book Positivity details her research in the area of positive emotions and in this talk Fredrickson defines and describes the positive emotions which she studies and the greater impact they have on health and social relations. Moving past the fight or flight psychology of negative emotions such as anxiety, she discusses her broaden-and-build theory of positive emotions which broaden one's awareness and encourage novel, varied, and exploratory thoughts and actions. This talk is available on streaming video Boston University's BUniverse website and if you like it there are a number of other videos on the site with Professor Fredrickson.

Stephen R. Covey Audio

Stephen R. Covey is world renowned as the author of "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People", a book that has become not only an international best seller but was recently voted by Forbes as one of the top 10 most influential management books ever. Earning his MBA from Harvard, and a doctorate from Brigham University, Covey began his career as an assistant to a business president and a professor of business management and organizational behavior. He currently is on the board of directors for the Points Of Light Foundation, which is based in Washington D.C. and engages in mobilizing millions of volunteers from all walks of life to help solve the social problems in various communities. Covey is also the founder of the Covey Leaderships Center, which helps organizations in the implementation of "principle-centered" leadership. He is the father of 9 and the grandfather of 43 and has been with his wife for almost 50 years.

We Recommend
To get started with Steven Covey's audio programs, we suggest "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective People", which Covey narrates himself and which has been a top seller for over a decade. This audio book ignores the trends of pop psychology and instead adheres to proven principles such as fairness, integrity, honesty, and human dignity. Even today, the 7 habits discussed in this book are very relevant in the business world and in life.

Next you might want to try another Covey classic "First Things First". This is a guide to managing your time by first learning how to balance your life. Traditional time management suggests that working harder, smarter, and faster will help you gain control over your life, and that increased control will bring peace and fulfillment. Covey gives instructions on how to make this possible in your own life and how balance is essential in attaining personal peace and wellness.

Finally for the family, there's "The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Families". Here Covey shows you how to apply the 7 Habits to the unique circumstances of your family. You'll learn to establish a proven and successful principle-centered framework to build strong family relationships and develop a common language so family members better understand each other. Whether you are in business and want to better understand how to manage your time and work habits, or are wishing to balance your family life, Stephen R. Covey has advice that can help you on your way. LearnOutLoud.com has everything available from Covey on audio and is glad to help you find the tools you need!
