MIT Sloan Alumni Online: Grace Ueng, SB '87

12:00PM - 1:00PM ET

Join MIT Sloan Alumni Online this season for a series of interviews with principled, innovative leaders who improve the world. Jackie Selby, EMBA '21, hosts a conversation with Grace Ueng, SB '87, on happiness being the key to successful leadership. 

Mental health is a growing concern of companies. Two-thirds of employees report mental health as a top challenge. 80% of executives report mental health issues. Happiness is elusive to many today.

And yet, success is not the key to happiness. Happiness is the key to success. To be a successful leader, you need to understand happiness and nurture it – yours and others.

Happy employees yield higher productivity and better results: stay in their jobs 4x longer, are 12% more productive, commit 2x more time to tasks, and have 65% more energy.

We are thrilled to have noted leadership coach and CEO of Savvy Growth, Grace Ueng, SB ’87, join us on March 15. Grace is the author of a weekly column on Leadership & Happiness, and serves as a thinking and accountability partner for leaders around the world. She is a longtime student of Tal Ben-Shahar, the creator of Harvard’s most popular course ever on Happiness, as well as Arthur Brooks, Professor of Happiness & Leadership at HBS, where she earned her MBA over three decades ago. Grace is an undergraduate alumna of MIT Sloan.
