Arianna Huffington is the chair, president, and editor-in-chief of the Huffington Post Media Group, a nationally syndicated columnist, and author of fourteen books. In May 2005, she launched The Huffington Post, which in 2012, won a Pulitzer Prize for national reporting. She was named to the Forbes Most Powerful Women list in 2013, and to the Time 100, Time magazine's list of the world’s 100 most influential people in 2006 and 2011. Originally from Greece, she moved to England when she was 16 and graduated from Cambridge University with an M.A. in economics. At 21, she became president of the famed debating society, the Cambridge Union. She serves on several boards, including EL PAÍS, PRISA, the Center for Public Integrity, and the Committee to Protect Journalists.
Huffington's new book THRIVE: The Third Metric to Redefining Success and Creating a Life of Well-Being, Wisdom, and Wonder is a call to arms to redefine how we measure success both in our work and our personal lives. Inspired by her 2013 commencement speech at Smith College and drawing on her experiences as a thought leader and working mother-of-two, Huffington shows how instead of settling for breaking through glass ceilings in broken corporate systems, women can change the system altogether by redefining what success is and what we value the most. Her speech touched a nerve and was quickly followed by conferences in New York, London, Munich and Hawaii, which received international attention and acclaim. The goal of these 'Third Metric' thinking is to look beyond money and power to include a third metric that recognizes the importance of well-being, wisdom, wonder, compassion and giving.
The way we currently define success leads to burnout, overwork, lack of sleep and being hyper-connected to technology—all to the detriment of our health, relationships, families, and even our careers. It is unsustainable for women, men, our communities, our nation and our planet. Huffington says we need a revolution in our lives—one that redefines what it means to be successful.
