Want to discover how the global pandemic – and our gradual emergence – is impacting wellbeing in communities and workplaces?

In this latest instalment of The Practitioner Lab Insights series, we’ll lift the lid on the latest research from data collected in Michigan at the end of March.

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 Five Surprising Ways Communities Are Thriving. Dr. Peggy Kern and Danielle Jacobs, co-founder of The Wellbeing Lab, share the latest insights from Michigan on the unexpected ways people, families and communities managed to thrive even in the midst of a global pandemic. Discover the roles struggle, psychological safety, families, allyship, and vaccinations have played in helping people to care for their wellbeing, and the practices you can implement in your own community.
  • Caring For Wellbeing At The Me, We & Us Levels In Workplaces. Dr. Michelle McQuaid, co-founder of The Wellbeing Lab, takes a deeper dive into what the survey data suggests about caring for wellbeing at the me (individual), we (team) and us (organizational) level. She’ll also share the four simple steps workplaces can take to LEAD (literacy, evaluation, activation and determination) wellbeing to improve performance, satisfaction and organizational commitment.
  • How One Community Has Built A Wellbeing Coalition. Kathy Snyder, Midland Area Wellbeing Coalition Coordinator joins Louis Alloro (co-creator of The Wellbeing Certificate) to answer your questions on what communities can do practically to improve wellbeing. Together they will share the three-year wellbeing journey Midland have undertaken diving into what’s worked well, where they’ve struggled and what they’ve learned that might help communities and workplaces.

You’ll also have the opportunity to ask these speakers questions during the event.

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.

Can’t be there live? Don’t worry. Purchase a ticket anyway, and we will send you the recording of each presentation to watch whenever you wish, along with a full copy of the research findings.
