Successful organizations are those that have a high level of well-being, autonomy and enthusiasm and allow individuals to thrive with a sense of fulfillment and purpose. Research findings from the field of Positive Psychology identify successful strategies and offer practical tools to help us view the world in ways that enhance levels of motivation, productivity and contribute to a positive outlook. This course offers leaders, managers and team members techniques to recognize unconscious patterns of thinking and behaving and proposes concrete methods to challenge the way we view obstacles and setbacks so that they can be overcome.
