Broadcasting HappinessA positive broadcaster is someone who focuses on the positive in order to motivate others and produce results. In Broadcasting Happiness, Michelle Gielan challenges readers to develop more positive outlooks on life. By capitalizing on positivity, positive broadcasters can change the trajectories of their families, companies, and communities. Journalists in particular should focus on the positive and practice transformative journalism by offering a more complete picture of what is happening in the world. By making the choice to see the good in life and share it, anyone can broadcast happiness.

According to Gielan:

  • Everyone is a broadcaster. A person’s friends, family, and coworkers are his or her audience. Positive broadcasters can influence the thinking, happiness, and potential of others.
  • When a person speaks up and broadcasts a new vision for the future, the result is positive change. Positive broadcasters leverage positivity and optimism through the use of power leads, flash memories, and leading questions.
  • Negativity can be contagious and can affect a person’s stress levels, health, and productivity. Positive broadcasters overcome stress and negativity by fact-checking situations, engaging in strategic retreats, and delivering bad news with the four Cs.
  • A group’s culture is based on the stories that they tell themselves. The more a positive story spreads, the more people it influences. By going viral, a positive broadcaster can unlock his or her full potential.
  • Journalists can and should make the move toward transformative journalism. Journalists should choose optimistic, emotional stories; tell the whole story; and engage the public.
