Full Bio

Research confirms that happier employees make better team members. They’re more engaged, productive, and innovative. They are also healthier and more loyal. This benefits their employer’s bottom line in many tangible and intangible ways.

This is the reason why Society of Happy People founder, author, and Practical Happiness Advocate, Pamela Gail Johnson, has spent more than two decades speaking, coaching, and writing about happiness in the workplace.

Oftentimes organizations know why it’s important to create a happier workplace environment, they just don’t know HOW to go about doing that.

That’s where Pamela’s unique approach to Organizational Happiness comes in. Every organization has their own very special culture. Pamela creates a customized path that helps a company shape their macro-culture while connecting each of the micro-cultures that support it in ways that are practical and easily integrated.

Pamela is the author of Practical Happiness: Four Principles to Improve Your Life. These principles can help everyone experience more happiness by redefining happiness and managing the experiences that zap it.

Her Practical Happiness @ Work programs use these same principles to help organizations create happier micro and macro-cultures.

Pamela has been interviewed by many media outlets including the Associated Press, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal, and CNN.

Be Happy Without Faking It: Put These Principles Into Practice Now

Boca Raton, FL, January 17, 2022 — Negative social media posts. Frightening headlines. Workplace challenges. These are all things that Pamela Gail Johnson, the founder of the Society of Happy People, would label “Happiness Zappers,” and they are a fact of life. The good news is these Happiness Zappers don’t have to put a lid on our smiles.

“We will all experience at least one or more Happiness Zapper — unhappiness, stress, fear, chaos or annoyances — each day,” Johnson said in a recent interview. “Much of our happiness is based on how we manage the Happiness Zappers.”

In her enlightening new book, Practical Happiness: Four Principles to Improve Your Life, Johnson paves a pathway toward authentic joy and fulfillment, with actionable strategies, transformational techniques, and real stories about real people who have put Johnson’s principles into practice.

“The Society of Happy People identified 31 types of happiness to help you identify more happy moments when they happen,” she added. “Sometimes, we’re happier than we think we are; we just don’t notice all of the happiness we experience.”

In her book, she details four happiness principles for living an authentically more joyful life:

  • Happiness is Personal
  • Happiness Zappers Can be Managed
  • Happiness Changes as You Change
  • Happiness is Bigger Than You Think

These four principles will help readers redefine personal happiness, manage their Happiness Zappers, and become more aware of the happy moments taking place all around them.



Pamela Gail Johnson became a happiness advocate when she founded the Society of Happy People in 1998. As a mostly happy person, Johnson asked herself, Where are all of the happy people?

A frequent media guest on ABC, CBS, NBC, CNN, radio and podcasts, her work has been covered by magazines, newspapers and online publications.

Currently, Pamela is known as the Practical Happiness Advocate for people who want to improve their lives by feeling happier. As a speaker, she helps organizations struggling with disengaged employees, burnout and high turnover.

She divides her time between Dallas, Texas, and Washington, DC.
