—Robert Reiss, host of The CEO Show

Not a positive thinking book, The Mood Elevator offers real, useable information that everyone can benefit from. It's logically laid out, the right kind of challenging, and worth reading a second time. It doesn't promise you'll get rich or that you can make all your dreams come true. It's honest about the work it takes to get control of how one feels, and it's science and real-life backed information is encouraging that we all can succeed.
I highly recommend The Mood Elevator.
One of the strong points of this book is that it functions as an insightful navigator to get to know yourself and what your motivations are, what drives your moods and therefore your behavior. One 'aha moment' for me was recognizing that if I am functioning in the lower margins of the mood elevator such as anxious, burned-out, defensive - that is not the time to be making life-changing decisions.
Learn about the power of being curious, the impact of behavioral patterns that become pervasive and why they should or should not be allowed to continue. Find out the nature of quieting your mind and why your brain needs that. The chapter that stands out right now is titled, Honoring Our Separate Realities. We need to appreciate and calmly understand differences without judging, without blaming even if we disagree. Read further into the book to discover coaching on building relationships and nurturing optimism. Admittedly we will never be optimistic and in a good mood all the time, but this book offers insight and instruction into how to pull yourself up the mood elevator before fall into the pit and stay there.
We need all the help we can get in managing our emotions, moods, and staying positive in a negative world. This book is timely and as Senn says, he "hopes to help all of us live a more fulfilling and successful life." In his book Larry Senn provides the methods and good start to give us a push toward that path.
I also appreciate information where you feel someone is speaking with you instead of over or at you.
In this updated edition of The Mood Elevator, inventor of "culture," Larry Senn has provided us with something that crosses generations, genders, country cultures and all the silos within organizations.
Try this. When you're frustrated, disappointed or angry, pause and imagine in your mind's eye someone you're grateful to. Remember what they did for you, how they believed in you, how they encouraged you. Now imagine them smiling at you and just plain enjoying you. Feel your appreciation, gratitude and how lucky you were to know them. Now feel how difficult it is to remember what the heck you were upset about.
Want to deepen the experience? Reach out to that person or next of kin and thank them for what they did and what it meant to you.
It'll make their day and make your week.
Now try again to think of what you were upset about? It will be even more difficult.
So Larry, here's a thank you to you for remaining a "true North" reminder to all of us on how to live happier (and be more productive) ever after, not to mention transform an organization to a place you'll look forward to going to work every day.
