Event Title: Creating Your Best Life: The Ultimate Life List Guide by Caroline Adams Miller, MAPP and Dr. Michael B. Frisch
"Creating Your Best Life" is the first evidence-based book on goal-setting and its intersection with the science of flourishing, also known as Positive Psychology. Its research-driven content walks readers through the importance of flourishing in goal-setting and goal accomplishment and how to achieve that yourself, the specific ways to set the "right" goals to maximize success, and the factors that also influence your success, including the environment, your friends, and the mindsets around resilience, grit and savoring. Martin Seligman praised the book in "Flourish," stating that it added a "major missing piece to the world of coaching," the Washington Post labeled it one of the top three business books of 2009, and Michael Bungay Stanier said it was one of his "top three books for managers." The book includes unique worksheets and exercises to help the reader take a fresh look at goal-setting that can be used personally and in a variety of professional settings, from coaching to consulting to psychotherapy.
Caroline Adams Miller is well-known coach, author, speaker and educator in the fields of empowerment, change, well-being and the science of goal accomplishment. Her fifth book, “Creating Your Best Life” (Sterling 2009), was the first book to connect the science of happiness with the science of goal-setting. Martin Seligman, the “father of Positive Psychology,” said in “Flourish,” that her book “added a major missing piece to the world of coaching” because of its ground-breaking and evidence-based connection between Positive Psychology and success.
Her newest book, “Positively Caroline,” (Cogent 2013) is a sequel to her best-selling “My Name is Caroline,” (Doubleday 1988) which was the first major autobiography by a bulimia survivor. “Positively Caroline” picks up where the first book ended, and includes a detailed look at how the science of flourishing can assist others with long-term addiction recovery.
Caroline is often in the media and has appeared in many radio, television and magazine stories, and was the first Positive Psychologist on satellite radio with XM’s “Positive Tip of the Day” between 2007 and 2009. She was named the 2012 Good News Ambassador by the Good News Network, and received the Mentoring award from the George Washington School of Business for her decades of helping others to achieve their goals.
