Are you curious about how to apply the latest positive psychology research in workplaces? Wondering how you get a leadership team to sign off these ‘softer’ approaches? Wish you had a tribe of like-minded practitioners with whom you could share best practices and resources?

Then this event could be for you.

Designed to explore bite-sized ideas fueled by science, and powered by real world experiences that help organizations (and people) apply the insights and practices of positive psychology in workplaces, you’ll discover:

  • The State of Workplace Wellbeing In Australia Dr. Peggy Kern & Michelle McQuaid share the latest PERMAH wellbeing results from workplaces around Australia and what these insights tell leaders and wellbeing practitioners about the practical steps we can help people to take to improve wellbeing for individuals, teams and whole workplaces.
  • Shining a Light on Strengths as Elise Morris shares her insights, tips and tricks about how to bring a strengths approach to life within your organisation. Whether you’re recruiting, having performance conversations or trying to enhance team dynamics you’ll discover how to bring out the best in your people.
  • Creating Communities of Kindness as Marie McLeod shares how the Community Kindness Challenge has the power to provide employees with tools to cultivate wellbeing within themselves and their teams, build wellbeing literacy and connect corporates to their local community through acts of kindness.

You’ll also have the opportunity to ask these speakers for their guidance on ways to apply positive psychology in any workplace.

Best of all, you’ll have time to meet a like-minded tribe of positive psychology researchers and practitioners, every one of them looking for tested, practical ways to make our workplaces better.
