What if you were quick to call out your team’s strengths? What if they were quicker at noticing them in themselves? How would your interpersonal relationships grow if your partners, friends, and family knew you saw the best in them?
Positive Psychology is the science of human flourishing and wellness. It’s applications range widely from professional to personal and the research shows — the more we care about and notice other people, the richer our lives become.
In this presentation, Chris Baccash, MAPP will provide insights from this emerging field. Focusing on strength-spotting interventions, we will learn how simple practices can greatly improve our workplaces, families and communities.
Join us in learning about the character strengths that exist in all of us, to varying degrees. Learn their names, how they are defined, and begin your journey of nurturing them in yourself and those around you.
