This week, I sit down with Meike Bartels, Professor in Genetics and Wellbeing at the Department of Biological Psychology at Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam. She’s also the president of the International Positive Psychology Association.

Professor Bartels is one of the world’s leading scholars of the science of well-being. She looks at what aspects of well-being are innate, what we can train and what’s outside our control.

We talk:

  • What we mean by well-being
  • The top external factors affecting our happiness
  • Habits for well-being
  • What we get wrong with well-being programmes
  • Bringing well-being awareness to your leadership
