Daniel Lerner

Is there any part of our lives that hasn’t changed over the past few years?  Whether it’s the way we learn, work, connect with each other, even spend our leisure time—it’s clear that pretty much everything has been transformed.  The thing that interests performance coach and positive psychologist Dan Lerner the most is the way the pandemic is changing our perspective on something essential: our well-being. Drawing on real-life stories and examples that come from his class ‘The Science of Happiness’ at New York University, Lerner explores how we can address the unique challenges of isolation, low mood, collective loss, financial hardship—while also making room for new opportunities to thrive in this environment. With his signature high-energy brand of storytelling, Lerner offers us simple yet powerful insights as to how we can make sense of this tragedy, maintain hope, and care for ourselves and each other.
