A Research Paper By Luis Chang
Executive Coach, UNITED STATES
Almost two decades ago, in a brief encounter with my friend Jorge Yamamoto, a distinguished social psychologist from the Catholic University of Peru in Lima, he related to me he was immersed in international research on happiness involving his university as well as an English university. They are analyzing what makes people in different countries happy. At that time I started to be curious and intrigued about the source of happiness. This paper, Pursuit of Happiness: What Makes People Happy? aims to discuss some insights that experts have found in their studies and research on happiness, which might be useful to coaches in helping their clients address situations of unhappiness, disillusionment, or the like.
