The Art Of Being Brilliant

Being brilliant, successful, and happy isn’t about dramatic change, it’s about finding out what really works for you and doing more of it! Andy Cope is a qualified teacher, wellbeing expert and ‘recovering academic’. His Loughborough University PhD was 12 years in the making and he revels in the irony that his thesis on human flourishing actually ended up making him miserable. Andy’s books are frequently on the best-sellers list. ‘The Art of Being Brilliant’, ‘Shine’, ‘The Little Book of Emotional Intelligence’ and ‘Zest’ have all topped the personal development charts. ‘Happiness Route Map’ was nominated as The Independent’s best self-help book of the year.  In this interview Andy lays down his common-sense principles that will ensure you focus on what you’re good at and become super brilliant and super happy both at work and at home!
