About The Book

The educator’s edition of this strengths-based classic features powerful stories, strategies and discoveries from a 50-year study. Includes access to Gallup’s CliftonStrengths assessment and a bucket-filling curriculum so educators can bring positivity to the classroom.

Organized around a simple metaphor of a dipper and a bucket — already familiar to thousands of people — How Full Is Your Bucket? shows how even the smallest interactions we have with others every day profoundly affect our relationships, productivity, health and longevity. Coauthor Don Clifton studied the effects of positive and negative emotions for half a century, and he and his colleagues interviewed millions of people around the world. Their discoveries contributed to the emergence of an entirely new field: Positive Psychology. These same discoveries are at the heart of How Full Is Your Bucket?

Clifton, who also coauthored the bestseller Now, Discover Your Strengths, penned How Full Is Your Bucket? with grandson Tom Rath. Written in an engaging, conversational style, their book includes colorful stories and five strategies for increasing positive emotions.

How Full Is Your Bucket? is a quick, breezy read. It will immediately help readers boost the amount of positive emotions in their lives and in the lives of everyone around them. The book is sure to inspire lasting changes in all who read it, and it has all the makings of a timeless classic.

This expanded educator’s edition includes a Bucket-Filling Semester Curriculum with 18 fun, easy lesson plans that educators can adapt for pre-K through 12th-grade students as well as a staff development guide.
