The Window will be recorded live in front of the Mission Creek Festival audience, with noted teacher, speaker, strength-based performance coach – and now author, Dan Lerner, as the guest.

The program will focus on Dan’s new book, his “The Science of Happiness” class, among other topics.

About Dan Lerner:

As instructor of the ever-popular NYU course, “The Science of Happiness,” and as author of U Thrive (April), Dan Lerner is using positive psychology to help people lead happy lives. Using cutting-edge research into how executives, artists, and athletes overcome anxiety, Lerner is teaching us to achieve well-being, rediscover our core strengths, and define success—on our own terms.

As a teacher, speaker, and strengths-based performance coach, Daniel Lerner is an expert in positive and performance psychologies. His key message is that developing a healthy (and happy!) psychological state has a profound impact on the pursuit of excellence—and he brings this uplifting message to students, established and high-potential performing artists and athletes, and numerous Fortune 500 companies and executives. His first book U Thrive: How to Succeed in College (and Life), co-authored with Alan Schlechter, will be published in April 2017 by Little, Brown, and Company.
