The Mood Elevator: Take Charge of Your Feelings, Become a Better You, By Larry Senn (August 2017)

Larry Senn gives us a whole new meaning to the phrase living high on life as he offers an ‘’operator’s manual” to show us how to live on the upper floors of our own Mood Elevators.

"Riding the Mood Elevator* is our moment-to-moment experience of life," Senn explained. "It carries us up and down as we swing through a wide range of emotions. In my latest book, The Mood Elevator, I show you the right buttons to push to help control your ride on the Mood Elevator, so you can live life on the upper floors."

It’s these "upper floors" like patience, optimism, and gratefulness that Senn says leads to a "more successful career, a more fulfilling job, a more loving marriage, and healthier relationships."

"When we are up the Mood Elevator, we experience higher-quality thinking. It’s clearer, more focused, more organized, and more flowing."

In The Mood Elevator, Senn also explains how we can use "pattern interrupts" to minimize our time on the lower floors, like irritability, stress, and depression.

Senn, 81, is a perfect example of living life on the upper floors. Married for 37 years, with five children, Senn is a nationally-ranked triathlete, a sport he didn’t take up until he was 70. He also still serves as chairman of the firm he founded in 1978, Senn Delaney, the culture shaping unit of Heidrick & Struggles, and is a sought-after keynote speaker and author.

Senn’s insights in The Mood Elevator are the result his research and firsthand experiences from four decades of working with Fortune 500 companies, state governors, members of two U.S. president's cabinets, and major universities to help shape their corporate culture.

The early praise for The Mood Elevator has been universal:

  • “Larry Senn has had a profound influence on my life through elegant yet simple principles, now found in The Mood Elevator. Practice the lessons in The Mood Elevator and the arc of your life will be changed forever—for the better.” —Dr. Gordon Gee, President, West Virginia University, and former President, The Ohio State University
  • “Larry Senn and the concepts he teaches, like The Mood Elevator, have had a profound impact on my career, on the success of Yum! Brands around the world, and on me personally.” —David Novak, former Chairman/CEO, Yum! Brands, and author of Taking People with You
  • “It is an amazing book that elevates your moods to the highest levels and unlocks your potential to achieve all-around success in your life. I wish I had this book long ago.” —Professor M. S. Rao, international leadership expert
  • “As his personal physician for decades, I know that Larry has been living the principles of the Mood Elevator and that this has resulted in his phenomenal cardiovascular and mental health. The principles of The Mood Elevator regarding living a balanced life emotionally and physically are cornerstones of cardiovascular risk reduction, as Larry has illustrated personally.” —Jay A. Johnson, MD, FACC, board-certified cardiologist and Attending Staff, Stanford University Medical Center
