Staying Positive in the Face of Negativity
Even the most optimistic of us can get weighed down when seemingly unrelenting negativity swirls around us at work and in life. It impacts our perspective, presence, and performance. Self-leadership expert Scott Mautz teaches a specific plan for fostering sustainable positivity, especially in the face of tiresome negativity. You’ll be able to stay positive over the long haul by applying fundamentals of positivity like staying grounded and practicing a special type of gratitude—and by drawing optimism from increased mental strength. Learn to build specialized positivity skills—such as handling criticism and difficult people—and build daily habits of positivity too. Plus, hear real-world examples and craft a personal MAP (micro action plan) for being realistic but staying upbeat when it feels like the world is conspiring to keep you down.

The Five Elements of Wellbeing
At its very heart, Wellbeing is the difference between thriving, struggling, and suffering. Gallup's extensive research has identified five elements that encompass how we experience our lives: Career, Social, Financial, Physical, and Community Wellbeing. During this workshop, participants will take the Gallup Wellbeing Index and participate in activities and reflection to help define their levels of Wellbeing in each of the five elements. Time will also be spent on identifying the gaps between current Wellbeing and what the ideal state of thriving Wellbeing is for the five elements. Materials will be provided during the workshop. All employees are invited to participate!
One session will be provided in the summer and two sessions will be provided during the fall 2022 semester. Please register by clicking on the appropriate link below.
