Offered to the workforce, positive psychology and related experiential practices give employees the tools to self-direct their learning, developing their own happiness and growth. This process can however only operate in parallel to the implementation of people-centered organizational processes and positive leadership.
I AM POSITIVE, WHAT CAN POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY OFFER ME?
“Positive” means much more than being happy or optimistic. It is a sophisticated, complex and trainable capacity that builds cognitive, emotional and social resources that help you better master the challenges you encounter in the world of business and your private life, especially in today’s challenging environment.
POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY IS NOT POSITIVE THINKING:
It is an evidence-based approach that takes a holistic view of personal and professional growth, building resources at a much deeper level than abstract thought or self-talk.
THE VALUE PROPOSITION OF POSITIVE PSYCHOLOGY:
Your Commitment: Time and Practice within a mentoring and coaching program, or organisational development program.
- Increased positivity and well-being.
- Greater social and emotional intelligence.
- Increased resilience and health.
- Better working and personal relationships.
- Increased performance and effectiveness.
- Better decision-making.
A lot of people aspire to be more productive so as to be happier but research in Positive Psychology (the science of growth and extraordinary performance) and Neuroscience has demonstrated that happiness leads to productivity, and has discovered the tools to develop it.
Work on happiness in business has an impact on engagement, productivity and sales, on the relationship between employees and between employees and managers, and on the climate and culture of a company. For executives as for employees, it has an impact on the resilience of the individual in relation to the risk of burnout. And, of course, more benefits of this work lie outside of business, in personal and family life.
