HappinessWorksâ„˘: The science of positive psychology works, but it takes ongoing work
2/3 of employees report mental health as a top challenge. Â Happy employees stay in their jobs 4x longer and commit 2x more time to tasks. Â Success is not the key to happiness, happiness is the key to success. Â How do we work on our happiness at work?
Grace overlays her personal story onto her decade of positive psychology studies to deliver a power hour of research backed interactive exercises and accountability assignments to focus on ongoing flourishing.
“Wow…thank you for your incredible workshop. It has made a difference in my life.”
Her teachers have included Tal Ben-Shahar, the creator of Harvard’s most popular course ever, Positive Psychology 1504 and Arthur Brooks, who teaches Leadership and Happiness at Harvard Business School. On the release of his book,Â From Strength to Strength, Finding Happiness, Success and Deep Purpose in the Second Half of Life, Grace sat down to interview Arthur.

Grace Ueng of Savvy Growth, had a life-changing event — a near-fatal bicycle accident that ultimately taught her more about life than any other experience.Â She began to study the correlation between successful endurance athletes and successful entrepreneurs. And then the connection between those who climb the 7 Summits and those who start successful companies, which became the topic of her TED talk.
In anticipation of becoming an empty nester, Grace began a personal Happiness journey. She quickly realized her in-depth study of positive psychology couldÂ benefit Savvy’sÂ coaching clients. And soon began to share How Happiness Can Help Your Company Flourish.
She speaks on her 7 themes of Project Peak including why Failure is a Good Thing, sharing with authenticityÂ her first-hand experiences overcoming adversity. Grace offers focused motivational HappinessÂ keynotes and workshops that she customizes for each client.Â Her raw vulnerability, including sharing her own mental health challenges, opens up audiences to respond. Research shows that happiness is key to flourishing employees, and corporations are investing in mental well-being, accordingly.

JOIN Graceâ€™s Happiness & Leadership Community
Grace was a big hit at this yearâ€™s IBM Women in Technology conference.
In her keynote, â€śIf thereâ€™s a Mountain, Climb It!â€ť she described how in coming up with a big win, often the biggest obstacle to overcome is a fear of failure.
Grace shared her personal story of overcoming a dramatic cycling accident to overcome fear, navigate obstacles, and create new paths. The audience held on to her every word and walked away inspired.
Graceâ€™s keynote â€śOn Obstacles and Entrepreneurshipâ€ť was inspirational!
Her courage and perseverance to not give up in the midst of challenging times is admirable. Her personal story served as a great example to us all, especially those of us pulled in multiple professional and personal priorities.
It also showed us that we all have our own journey and that we will eventually end up where we belong.
She took the time to understand our goals for the weekend and what we hoped her remarks would capture for the participants. Ms. Ueng was the perfect fit because she relates so well to her audience, is highly credible, and most importantly, is very engaging.
I would highly recommend hiring her for your next speaking need. She has a special way of connecting to her audience and is very willing to engage any questions even after she steps off the podium. Ms. Ueng makes a gracious keynote.
A fan of Graceâ€™s coaching and marketing talents, I recommended she conduct a Personal Branding workshop for our firm.
Her workbooks areÂ reallyÂ helpful â€“ especially for the associates who we are trying to help guide.Â Even senior attorneys need reminders on what they should be doing, and they said as much after Graceâ€™s workshop. Â She struck the right tone and hit the right level of advice for the wide range of attorneys attending.
Grace energized and inspired us to put more time into our marketing efforts, which is exactly the result I was hoping for!
