Course Details

This seminar explores the rapidly growing and exciting field of positive psychology - the study of what is right with people. Through thought-provoking discussion and a variety of exercises and activities, we aim at understanding the power of positive approaches and how these lead toward greater happiness, well-being and career/life satisfaction. We will search for an understanding of happiness and how to make it a greater part of our lives inside and outside of work; how to identify individual strengths in ourselves and in others; how to use such strengths toward higher performance and greater fulfillment; understanding the value of achieving a state of "flow," as well as other theories, thoughts and approaches that lead toward greater vitality and growth. We will also touch upon the applications of positive psychology theory to specific areas within organizations, such as leadership, decision-making, organizational change as well as work in general. Note that this seminar is not a trip to "happy camp," but rather an adventure into understanding how humans can truly flourish. Recommended for organizational leaders, team leaders, managers, change agents, teachers or those, regardless of occupation or position that want to put greater positivity into their work, life and relationships.

Special Note:

This workshop requires a minimum of 8 enrollments to run.
