OLS 18-19 - Happiness is Just a Goal Away

Who this event is for

  • Everyone


JHB Main Lecture Theatre, John Henry Brookes Building, Headington Campus


What motivates you when setting goals?


With one in four adults being diagnosed with a mental illness at some stage of their lives, deteriorating mental health is now one of the most serious health challenges to Western society.


In his research, Dr. Christian Ehrlich has found the reasons why we do things are a very important contributor to happiness. It’s not what you do, it’s why you do it that makes you happy.


Christian will talk about his research into wellbeing in the workplace. He will discuss his model for assessing the work goals of individuals, and the link to happiness and engagement.


Christian is Senior Lecturer at Oxford Brookes Business School. He was awarded a Research Excellence Award in 2017.


This lecture is in celebration of International Day of Happiness.
