About this Talk: Srikumar Rao says we spend most of our lives learning to be unhappy, even as we strive for happiness. At Arbejdsglaede Live! 2009, he teaches us how to break free of the “I’d be happy if…” mental model, and embrace our hard-wired happiness.

About the Speaker: Executive, educator, writer and life coach Srikumar S. Rao asks, “Are you ready to succeed?” — and in his famous course “Creativity and Personal Mastery,” he teaches his students how to do so. Srikumar Rao was an executive at Warner Communications and McGraw-Hill before he created his celebrated MBA course, “Creativity and Personal Mastery.” The course-the only business school course that has its own alumni association-shows students how to discover their unique purpose, creativity and happiness, through group work and a philosophical perspective.
