The Orange Frog: A book based upon the book The Happiness Advantage by Shawn Achor

Spreading a Positive Story About Creating a Happier, More Productive, More Satisfying Life and Workplace.

Caught between two worlds, Spark was exactly like every other frog in his pond with one notable exception. Spark emerges from a tadpole with a slight but noticeable orange spot. And this orange spot makes Spark feel uncomfortably different. What’s more, Spark begins to make a disconcerting observation; when Spark does things that make him feel better (and produce more positive results) the orange spots increase. Spark is left with a difficult decision; be normal, which makes him less conspicuous, or continue doing those things that make him happier, more productive and… more orange.

So begins the parable of The Orange Frog, a disarming tale that serves as the starting point for the workshop Leading Positive Results™.

By the end of the story, readers see and feel pressures they recognize in their day-to-day life.

They also witness the most remarkable transformation that takes place when Spark finally chooses to adopt an orange way of life. Not only does his own personal satisfaction and productivity increase, these same results slowly start to ripple out to the other frogs in the pond.
