With Harvard Business School Associate Professor and author, Laura Huang

What does it mean to truly cause delight?

How does it impact those around us? We’ve always been taught that hard work is the key to success in business. And yet, we know that hard work alone isn’t always enough— success is highly dependent on perceptions, signals, cues, and other implicit factors.

*To delight* is to capture the attention of those around, opening the door for opportunity and giving you the chance to demonstrate how you provide value.

But how do we master the art of delighting? What is the secret formula? In this class, Harvard Business School Professor Laura Huang delves into both the art and science of how to increase opportunities and maximize your success through delight and delighting—so that your hard work works harder for you. You’ll leave more delightful than ever.

In this class you will:

  • Discover what it means to delight, and how delighting key gatekeepers (employers, investors, executives etc) can provide you with advantages in work and in life.
  • Master various methods for how to delight and be delightful.
  • Identify the types of strategies to use when attempting to access key organizations and get practical tips on how to deploy these strategies.
  • Understand the science of delighting and uncover why some attempts to delight are incredibly effective and why others fall flat.

A spark is something quite small and, by itself, not very powerful. But a spark has the ability to ignite. An idea is like a spark; alone it is just a set of words, but it too can ignite. A great idea can inspire others to dream bigger. Let us all work together to ignite something greater than ourselves.

Let us all be a Spark of Optimism.
