EP00: Welcome To Making Positive Psychology Work

Podcast with Michelle McQuaid


Thank you for joining me for the very first episode of Making Positive Psychology Work. Every week, I’ll be interviewing the world’s leading researchers and practitioners  applying the evidence-based practices of positive psychology and neuroscience in workplaces to bring out the best in people. You see I believe that by uncovering tested, practical ways to help people move from functioning to flourishing at work, together we’ll be able to better navigate the incredible challenges and opportunities our world faces.

When you watch the ongoing economic, environmental, social and political challenges current reverberating around our world, can make it hard to feel hopeful about our future. But when you start diving into the growing body of research on the power of positive psychology and positive organizational scholarship approaches to improve people’s wellbeing, to leverage their strengths, to cultivate compassion, to motivate ourselves by the positive difference we can each make, and to harness our grit to accomplish the things that matter most, it’s impossible to deny the individual and collective potential we truly have at our fingertips.

My goal on this podcast is to make this as easy, enjoyable and effective as possible for you. In this podcast, you’ll hear how.
