In this book, we introduce our research on success at work in a very broad sense. This research can be said to have begun during the fi rst years of this millennium. Adjunct Professor Uusiautti fi rst focused on work drive in nurses andmidwives, expanding her analysis to Finnish Employees of the Year, whileProfessor Mt̃̃t ̃conducted her studies on love and human relationships. Whenour specifi c research streams converged, we began studying positive developmentin childhood and adolescence as well as in adulthood and later life. We evenmanaged to incorporate our ideas on leadership. Now, we think it is time tocompile our fi ndings into a psychology of success. In many parts of this book, wewill refer to the route to success? we hope that this book will function as a signpostshowing the way to happiness-promoting success at work. The standpoint in this book rests on psychology, particularly positive psychology. This means that we deliberately aimed to combine the themes of work successwith fl ourishing and favourable development. Our purpose is to inspire andchallenge researchers and all those interested to examine the possibilities of thispositive approach and to consider this as one example of how to seize phenomenathat are diffi cult to defi ne comprehensively but, fi rst and foremost, we want themto see the connection between success and happiness
