Great Days at Work enables professionals to become more enthusiastic at work, feel more positive and work more effectively with others. Drawing on the latest insights from Positive Psychology, it outlines practical day to day changes to make that create instant benefits, as well as helps develop a long-term plan to get more out of work.

The book is based on a three layered framework: the first layer focuses on the mindset for change; the second focuses on personal responsibility; the third focuses on vision and choice. It reveals how to use these layers to develop an effective perspective on time, embed productive new habits, gain a clear sense of self and work better with others. As a result, business professionals will make a bigger contribution to their organization, as well as feel more engaged, satisfied and in control of their own work and career. Hazelton aims to show readers how to have a great day at work, every day.
