 Mindfulness and Positive Psychology Works In The Workplace

What does mindfulness bring to mind? There are many myths and false beliefs about mindfulness despite the everyday evidence and sound research that documents the far reaching benefits in today’s workplaces. The same is true for positive psychology. We will learn from an expert with deep credentials how mindfulness and positive psychology really work in today’s workplace. Don’t underestimate the power and potential of these two complementary bodies of knowledge and related practices!

Join us on May 11 if you would like to hear some examples and practical suggestions for enhancing leadership, teamwork, and everyday workplace performance using mindfulness and positive psychology.
