Group Of Business People In Their OfficeThe field of positive psychology encourages us to be fully engaged in our lives. Easier said than done, some would argue. But there are ways to become more fully engaged in our lives. Team members are encouraged to begin thinking and feeling positively about their lives, and in so doing, thrive and enjoy happiness.

Each of the workshops in this series can stand alone or be run as a series. We have had many participants find the “Desserts” seminar a way of letting go of their frustrations, laughing at some of ther knee jerk reactions and realizing they need to take time to enjoy life if they want to begin to thrive. The next two seminars in the series are brand new, based on our latest research and development.

  • Putting Positivity To Work

Or when we feel reinvigorated by a new idea. “Positivity reins whenever positive emotions touch and open our heart.” And the good news is that positivity can be a choice! You’ll discover how positivity can last longer than a fleeting moment — even in the workplace!
