Subordinates are like plants: if you get the conditions just right, they will usually flourish. So what are those conditions?  This workshop series will answer this question by drawing on the latest research in positive psychology on engagement, meaning, and resilience. 

In this workshop series, Prof. Tish Robinson, PhD, Hitotsubashi University have joined forces with several positive psychology researchers at the University of Pennsylvania’s Center for Positive Psychology working with Professor Martin Seligman, to focus on three skill sets necessary for managers to maximize their own and their employees’ effectiveness and satisfaction: 1) Creating meaning through matching employee strengths to the tasks at hand; 2) Engagement; and, 3) Resilience.

First Session:  Know Yourself/ Know Others. 
The first workshop, Friday, January 8, 6-10pm applies your own and your subordinates’ strengths to something bigger than oneself to create meaning.  Seligman et al found that using one’s top strengths in a new way, every day for a week led to greater satisfaction, with effects lasting at least six months.  This workshop draws on research matching your and employees’ natural strengths to the tasks at hand.  We will also explore how to communicate with people of different strengths.
