Imagine a community of leaders able to surpass the limitations of traditional leadership strategies and proactively address the negative consequences inherent in today’s high stress, often conflict laden, challenging work environments. Imagine leading from a strengths-based philosophy armed with the latest research and evidence-based practices in gratitude and contemporary neuroscience, in order to create more positive, collaborative, and engaged teams.
The human brain, with its built-in negativity bias, identifies the workplace first and foremost as a social system. Leaders attending this program will be able recognize how the correlates of gratitude and neuroscience create more prosocial workplace behaviors, greater motivation to accomplish goals, and higher productivity.
A review of recent studies on gratitude in the workplace will show employees are prouder of their work, have greater job satisfaction, and are more commitment to the organization. Additionally, studies reviewed will further demonstrate an increase in employee engagement, greater resilience in response to stress, and an increase in psychological capital (the positive and developmental state of an individual.)
This program will also review our recent gratitude intervention study which resulted in statistically significant improvements in employee engagement and meaningfulness of work.
Program attendees will be able to translate the research and discoveries into a deeper understanding of gratitude as a leadership essential and a contributing factor for improving individual and team engagement. Program resources include reflective exercises, useful coaching and practice techniques, inspirational quotes, and references to enhance attendees learning experience.
This program covers topics in the Leadership Development track.
