'Six months on from Sarah's workshop the value of what I learned is still unfolding - I am now confidently using the Organisational Strengths Cards she showed us and the change in my team has been dynamic and revelatory, they are on fire! I highly recommend these masterclasses to anyone working in organisations large or small!'
'Thank you for hosting such an exciting, inspiring day yesterday. I was so pleased...so much time to share stories and share insights. I am buzzing today....I found your delivery style relaxed and engaging – I learnt so much and had a great deal of fun doing so.'
What is this workshop? How will it help me in my organisation?
There is a great desire in the twenty-first century for workplaces that are good for people, that stimulate personal growth and engender an authentic sense of self, and that are commercially successful. Pulling on research into successful, flourishing organizations, and the evidence base of positive psychology, and the practice of Appreciative Inquiry, Sarah will explain:
- The characteristics of positive and flourishing organizations
- The distinctive features of positive leadership
- The business case argument for ‘abundance’ leadership
- In addition, during the workshop you will actively explore how to apply the principles of positive psychology at work using a case-study based game
Participants will leave the workshop with:
- A clear understanding of the distinct characteristics of positive and flourishing organizations
- Evidence supporting the argument for creating positive and flourishing organizations
- An understanding of the specific ways leadership creates such organizations
- Practical tips and techniques to put into practice in their own organizations
When/where will it be?
The workshop will be held at Room WG701-702, Auckland University of Technology, Level 7, Sir Paul Reeves Building, Gov Fitzroy Place, Auckland and will run for 4 hours from 10am to 2pm, including a short break for refreshment.
