Présentation de l'éditeur

From the #1 New York Times bestselling author Tom Rath (more than 2 million copies sold in the U.S.) and bestselling author Jim Harter, Ph.D., a wide-ranging book (based on a 150-country Gallup study) that will help readers improve their careers, relationships, finances, physical health and community wellbeing.

Over the past decade, Gallup has introduced the concepts of strengths-based development and employee engagement to more than 20 million people around the world — largely through the #1 Wall Street Journal bestseller StrengthsFinder 2.0 by Tom Rath and the New York Times bestseller 12: The Elements of Great Managing, which was coauthored by engagement expert Jim Harter. In Wellbeing: The Five Essential Elements, these bestselling authors team up to share the results of a landmark study of wellbeing and its implications for organizations and individuals.

Their groundbreaking research reveals how organizations can help employees boost their overall wellbeing — from their satisfaction with their careers to their financial security and level of community involvement. After conducting this extensive study, Rath and Harter discovered that much of what we think will improve our wellbeing is either misguided or just plain wrong. When striving to improve our lives, we’re quick to buy into programs that promise to help us make money, lose weight or strengthen our relationships. While it might be easier to treat these critical areas in our lives as if they are independent, they’re not. Gallup’s comprehensive study of people in more than 150 countries revealed five universal, interconnected elements that shape our lives: Career Wellbeing, Social Wellbeing, Financial Wellbeing, Physical Wellbeing and Community Wellbeing.

Wellbeing: The Five Essential Elements provides you with a holistic view of what contributes to your wellbeing over a lifetime. Written in a conversational style, this book is filled with fascinating research and innovative ideas for boosting your wellbeing in each of these five areas. As a complement to the book, you’ll have the opportunity to use Gallup’s online Wellbeing Finder to track and improve your wellbeing. By the time you finish reading this book, you’ll have a better understanding of what makes life worthwhile. This will enable you to enjoy each day and get more out of your life — while boosting the wellbeing of your friends, family members, colleagues and others in your community.

2.0 étoiles sur 5 A bit lacking... 5 février 2013
Par km8870 - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Relié Achat vérifié
I work for a company that promotes wellness. I was actually really confused when I first heard of these "five essential elements of wellbeing" and thought someone must have made an error in the presentation I was listening to because there was absolutely no mention of any psychological or emotional wellness contributing to wellbeing. I found out it's not one of the five components. So I bought the book, thinking surely it would explain the absence in some reasonable way to me. Not so. It's just... missing. As if the 57.7 million Americans with mental disorders could just get a better job or improve their social lives and perhaps their illness would disappear?

I'm not saying the components mentioned aren't important- all of those things contribute to the authors definition of wellbeing: "the things that are important to how we think about and experience our lives." But I found that the authors' "advice" even on these other topics was pretty flimsy. In the career wellbeing section we are advised to "avoid sustained periods of unemployment (over a year) when you are actively seeking a job but unable to find one." Since most unemployed people are not unemployd by choice, and the author is actually acknowledging that they are unable to find a job...I fail to see how that is at all helpful (and it's actually a bit insulting... to the unemployed person and my intelligence).

Basically, the views here are quite simplistic. We found out that people with "high wellbeing" are passionate about their work...so everyone should have a job they are passionate about. What a lovely idea! How exactly, does that work? Since it's probably more realistic in many cases to say that a person would be unable to leave a job they are unhappy with due to financial obligations and a poor job market, focus might be better placed on improving an employees' outlook (psychological/emotional) or improving the workplace environment. I think most of the book, and the financial chapter in particular, is speaking to a smaller percentage of Americans who do have more economic choices and freedom... in the midst of our present economy, and when the reality is that a third of the country has a household income of less than $25k, advising people to spend money on vacations for "the experience" comes across as a bit out of touch.

Reporting data is one thing. Interpreting what that data really means is much more complicated. This book does a great disservice to the data by leaving big chunks of who we are out of the picture.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 I am not sure... 5 septembre 2015
Par Kindle Customer - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I was disappointed with this book. The research behind it was interesting but I felt like the major elements that were missing were in regards to the relationship with the self. One can strive to be healthy in all the ways Rath mentioned but if it is just a matter of crossing something off of a list I am not sure if one is living their best life.

And one of the things that I majorly disagree with is how career well being impacts other aspects of life.I think that there are healthier workplaces than others. However I have also experienced that in my more negative work situations it is also about the mindset that you have. Ie..I can't control how much money I make but I can control how I spend the money I earn. I may be upset with a situation at work but how do I make sure I don't take it out on my husband or my parents. And when I have been unemployed or underemployed I am better with exercising daily.

In that regard the mindset about the situation one is in speaks more to a person's overall well-being than the situation itself. This makes me think that Mindset by Carol Dweck the best book I've ever read in this genre.

Don't get me wrong there are some good points in this book but if I could get my money back for this book I wouldn't complain. I found that Rath's Strengths Finder was a better book.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 A Pretty Good Book 27 septembre 2015
Par Grandpa - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
Well Being is a pretty good book for those interested in learning about well-being. The five areas they have identified are certainly important ones and people who with minimal stress and reasonable satisfaction in those five areas are indeed more likely to be happy with their lives. However, there are several problems with the approach taken by the authors. First, by quoting lots of studies and polls, they make it sound like this is all very scientific, and therefore to an age that over-idolizes science, they make it sound like they must be right. But as a scientist myself, I see people misusing science all the time as well as expecting that it can answer everything when it cannot. Second, the authors don't say much about the likelihood that how well one is satisfied with each of their five areas is as much dependent on one's attitude toward it as any objective facts about one's career, friends, finances, etc. I would humbly suggest that if you tend to be satisfied with what you have in each area, you will have a pretty good well-being, and those attitudes are partly familial and partly dependent on whether one has found a spiritual or religious understanding of what life is all about. There are only 2 sentences in the book about this, perhaps because the authors prefer that readers focus on their topic areas rather than on what is more fundamental.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 the real value is in the Wellbeing Finder platform 25 mars 2015
Par Chinarut - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
The real value of this book is in the included license to the Wellbeing Finder platform (wbfinder.com) to track your well being for 6 months. You could say what you're investing in (time and/or money) is in the research & design of the technology. The book is a simple read and is in many ways a "manual" to share the WHY behind it all. The 2nd half of the book outlining the research methods used - the references are excellent.

I'm 1 week into the process and they are correct - the process of tracking and measuring encourages you to reflect and inquire into why the numbers you get are the way they are and make the appropriate changes in your life. With its focus on the 5 elements, I personally would recommend referring to other books to do any required deep dives. Here are some examples (some Gallup published, others aren't):

1. physical - Eat Move Sleep is my current bible (published by Gallup). These 3 areas can be dived into further: eat:The Pleasure Trap; sleep: The Twenty-Four-Hour Society; move: currently reading Sweat Your Prayers with my bias towards dance as my "fun" way to move :)
2. social - Vital Friends is a Gallup-published book. Lots of excellent relationship books out there - find one that works for you. Tribal Leadership is excellent when you are ready to shift your focus from creating dyads to triads in your life.
3. financial - balancing common sense with Secrets of the Millionaire Mind and principles of The Zeitgeist Movement Defined and The Best That Money Can't Buy. BOLD is excellent if you are an entrepreneur interested in "exponential thinking"
4. career - Take the Clifton StrengthsFinder 2.0 if you haven't already. It will not only impact your career, it will impact the 4 other areas of well being tremendously. Business Model You is excellent for those of you interested in applying entrepreneurial thinking to your own life.
5. community - Your deep dive here really depends on the type of contribution you wish to be to your community. Is it philanthropy or "straight up" volunteering or something else? The training provided in the Wisdom Area at Landmark Worldwide is an excellent foundation (note: not a book - sometimes it requires actually getting your head out of books, out the house, and be with your community! :)

The 5 elements is a research-driven framework that speaks to all walks of life. If you can see it as such, you'll find the book creates focus and may transform the way you see your life - more importantly, it creates a context to communicate your well being needs and listen for the well being needs of others.

5.0 étoiles sur 5 Essential for everyone 9 septembre 2013
Par Jennie Sydney - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Format Kindle Achat vérifié
I've adopted the well-being philosophy in everything I do and everything I do can be placed within one of the five elements. Research shows that for a person to be truly satisfied with their life they need to thrive in these five elements of well-being: physical, financial, community, career, and social. It's not enough to thrive in only a few. You know the saying, "Money doesn't buy happiness." Well here's the research. If you are not thriving in even one category, it can have a major impact on your overall wellbeing.

The key to implementing strategies to improve your well-being is small steps. Take on one element at a time. But when you move on to the next element, you need to continue what you've been doing to improve the other. Gradually adding small things for each area to make an until you are thriving in all five. It's not impossible, but it take patience, persistence, and positivity.

This book comes with an access code to take WellbeingFinder which will allow you to track your overall and elemental well-being daily and monthly through a series of questions. It really works!

I recommend this book to anyone looking to discover why they don't feel satisfied when it feels like they may have everything they need.
