Have you ever been turned off by someone’s positive attitude? What does research have to say on the subject of positive leadership and how does it differ from simply being positive?
These questions and more will be discussed during the workshop with Kate Atkin, speaker and author of "The Confident Manager".
With an MSc in positive psychology, and experience as a leader herself while working for Barclays (as well as in her role as JCI Cambridge president in 1996), Kate will take you through some researched steps to becoming a positive leader and provide you with tools, tips and techniques for effective ways of working and leading teams.
The workshop aims to leave you with strategies you can implement straight away as well as pointers of where to go for more information.
