THE HAPPINESS EQUATION: Science-Backed Habits to Cultivate Positive Mindset

We live in a world where we’re bombarded by change, expectation, and uncertainty. News media hijacks our brains while social media tells us we are never good enough. Anxiety, depression, and loneliness rates are at record highs. What we need is a splash-of-cold-water talk that is science-backed, story-laden, and full of laughs. Audiences learn how it is possible, despite larger tectonic plates they cannot control, to use specific research-backed tools and practices to cultivate a habit-based positive mindset every day. Based on Neil’s #1 international bestseller The Happiness Equation.

BE HAPPY FIRST: Resilience and Breakthrough Performance In Times Of Change

After Neil’s wife left him and his best friend took his own life, he crash-landed in an empty downtown bachelor apartment. Just twelve months later, he was working directly for the CEO at Walmart, running the International Academy of Digital Arts and Science’s “Best Blog in the World”, and had just published The Book of Awesome, which stormed the New York Times bestseller list and sold over a million copies. The lesson was clear: resilience and growth can come from challenge and change. An inspiring talk that shares action-based ways to lift performance to new heights.


Does great work lead to happiness? Or… does happiness lead to great work? Neil Pasricha shares counterintuitive research-based answers in this fun, fast-paced, research-grounded tour of the emerging neuroscience and positive psychology landscape. Neil shows how cultivating a positive mindset results in 31% higher productivity, 37% higher sales, and 300% greater creativity – and then shares how to get there. Based on fresh research Pasricha published in Harvard Business Review, this is a high-energy, takeaway-laden talk that gets audiences buzzing.


Which company is #1 on the Fortune 500 and has been for over a decade? Walmart. The retail behemoth’s rise to half a trillion dollars in sales with over two million employees has been well-documented. But what hasn’t been documented is how they develop, nurture, and grow leaders up through those ranks. Neil served as Director of Leadership Development at Walmart and worked for the CEO while partnering with Harvard Business School to develop the first global leadership program inside the retail giant. In this talk he shares how leaders can use science-backed practices to help themselves show up to lead teams of two, two thousand, or two million. It starts with yourself. Neil will show you how.

HAPPY HABITS: Tiny Changes, Massive Results

Why do so few people say, “I love my job”? Gallup reports a whopping 79% of the global workforce is disengaged. But what if there were simple habits that could help turn employees into their most engaged, creative, and productive selves? It’s not crazy talk. It’s actually happening. Using his unique blend of science-backed models and lean-in-and-laugh stories, Neil shares simple happiness habits and, more importantly, teaches audiences how to make them stick. The result is an easy and research-backed way to build small, simple habits to help create workplaces where people show up inspired to do their best work every day.

BUILDING TRUST IN DISTRUSTFUL TIMES: 3 Ways to Increase Trust with Customers

According to the Edelman Trust Barometer trust in media, business, and government are at an all-time low. We have never believed less, agreed less, or trusted less. Yet, building trust, and developing the community that surrounds it remains imperative for any organization, influencer, startup or brand. So what are the new ways to build trust and community in an era of mistrust? Highlighting current business examples, learn about what works, what doesn’t, and how to figure out who to really believe and rally behind. With his signature humor, New York Times bestselling author Neil Pasricha, shares three modern ways organizations can build more trust:

  • Finite Over Infinite: In an era of infinite choice, the value of curation skyrockets
  • Human Over Algorithm: In an era of bots, we trust brains
  • Go All In, Show All In: The more chips you push into the middle, the more we buy your hand

Neil Pasricha Reviews

“Thank you for taking the time to travel to Cleveland for our 2024 Leadership Retreat.  Your inspiring session was truly ‘awesome’ and was the perfect closing to our retreat.  You brought great energy and helpful insights to the 300 Cleveland Clinic leaders.”


“Neil exceeded expectations.  His message is relevant and timely… if not urgent.  His delivery is authentic and engaging.  His recommendations are immediately actionable.  Our team translated his talk into action the very same day… and it immediately showed!”


“We were very pleased with Neil’s program on ‘The Subtle Art of Happiness’ at our System Leadership Meeting. On our 10-point rating scale, he received a score of 9.39.  Some of the audience comments included:

  • He was energizing and the message is timely and relevant. SO helpful.
  • I LOVED The Subtle Art of Happiness presentation. Neil was super engaging and had me feeling encouraged.
  • Learned many new habits that I will be applying to workplace and my personal life.
  • Neil imparted information that I will implement in my personal and professional life. 1000 minutes–I’m using two for me.
  • I like Neil’s two minutes a day practice. I will be doing the night one where I put my phone away and read two pages out of a book every night before bed.
  • Took away the Forest Bathing and how to bring that into your day.”

“Neil was incredibly attentive and intentional about delivering a message tailored to the needs of our group. He shared valuable insights with humility, humor, and authenticity. He was inspirational and thought provoking. People were moved to laughter and tears at different times throughout his presentation. They were 100% engaged the entire time he spoke, and have continued, even a month later, to talk about the lessons they learned from him. I’ve heard lots of feedback and interest in beginning practice of the “2-minute morning” routine and I think everyone really appreciated having these types of practical suggestions. I could not be more happy with the outcome! Neil is truly amazing!”
