The Happiness Coach

The Happiness Coach

The research is undisputable. Positive environments enhance performance and create cultures of agility and collaboration.

Happiness is success. Not the other way round. The world is a better place when the happiest version of us is walking around. If we want to have a positive environment around us we have to start with ourselves. By becoming positive leaders not only we know how to take care of ourselves but we also know how to take care and empower others.

Whether working with C-level executives, direct reports, colleagues, vendors or customers, challenges at the workplace often come down to Relationships – how people do, or don’t, work well together. In fact, the more technologically advanced the world becomes, the more critical human interaction becomes. Dr. Elia Gourgouris recognizes the importance of relationships and how they affect organizations – from productivity to teamwork, collaboration, communication, conflict resolution, employee retention and more.

Dr. Elia has helped thousands of people and senior executives to develop their skills of happiness. Through his 7 Paths to Lasting Happiness methodology, Dr. Elia will help you and your team achieve lasting transformational happiness.

With the focus on enhancing wellbeing and resilience, his interdisciplinary approach is very practical and with immediate results for the individual, team members and wider organization.

As a certified trainer in the principles of the “Best Year Yet” program, Dr. Elia guides executives and leaders through an interactive, self-reflective workshop where participants set transformational goals based on ten simple questions. Within a relatively short time, participants develop a one-page, annual plan for success to be carried out over the next 12 months—resulting in the best year of their life, both personally and professionally.

More than just goal setting, the Best Year Ever Programme involves personal transformation by setting and achieving the goals that matter most. In going through this program, you can expect to improve your life and your business by:

  • Deciding what’s most important for your success
  • Setting transformational goals
  • Making big things happen in the coming year
  • Living your values to have the life you want
  • Delivering a breakthrough in one area of your life
  • Producing the results that matter most

With the Best Year Ever, leaders walk away with a precise, step-by-step road map of goal planning and goal management taking them through the next year.


Dr. Elia is a certified trainer of the Focus Your Vision program, developed by inspirational keynote speaker, philosopher and photographer, Dewitt Jones. This program guides individuals or entire teams through a reflective process to identify their purpose and connect with their vision, using passion to turn their vision into reality. Focus Your Vision combines—on film—stories from Dewitt Jones’ unique life as a National Geographic photographer with his extraordinary photographs and insightful philosophy, to teach both creativity and vision. He turns everyday occurrences into extraordinary visions.

As a trainer and coach, Dr. Elia steers people through a multi-sensory, self-discovery process that allows for creation of a clear, focused vision as well as finding the passion for your vision. Passion is the energy and power that allows us to manifest our vision and drive our technique. Life demands that we have passion; it takes our visions from good, to great, to truly extraordinary.

Dr. Elia covers seven key Focus Your Vision concepts:

  • Keep your vision focused
  • Stop, look, and listen
  • Hold onto the best, let the rest fall away
  • Trust your intuition
  • It’s not trespassing to go beyond your own boundaries
  • Make your vision big enough
  • Do you have juice in your camera?
