Overview : Every manager wishes for a motivated, productive team. The problem for many team leaders and managers is that they don’t know how to make this wish a reality. Many organizations promote individuals who are subject-matter experts but have little experience effectively managing people or teams. Leaders are hungry for information that will help them advance the development of their work groups, and themselves.

The relatively new discipline of positive psychology - the scientific study of human flourishing – has spawned new areas in the study of organizational and managerial effectiveness: Positive Organizational Behavior and Positive Organizational Scholarship. Exciting new research looks at positive organizational performance, climates, strengths, and leadership practices in organizations that lead to cultures of excellence.

One of the leading thinkers in these fields, Shaun Achor, author of The Happiness Advantage: The Seven Principles that Fuel Success and Performance at Work, notes that the old adage that “If you work hard, you will become successful, and once you become successful, then you’ll be happy” is actually the other way around: Rather, “happiness is the precursor to success, not merely the result." The key to developing an engaged, devoted workforce is for managers to lead in such a way as to maximize employee satisfaction and happiness. From there, a positive upwards spiral emerges.

Through this webinar, Dr. Martin will help managers focus on employees’ strengths and accomplishments. Leaders will learn to effectively coach employees to play to their strengths, thereby enhancing employee engagement and helping teams thrive. This webinar will explain the new science of positive psychology and how to utilize its principles in effective management and performance coaching. It will also help leaders remind themselves of key managerial principles to enact that will produce more creative, productive, enthusiastic and loyal team members. In today’s economic climate, employee retention of top talent is critical, and this webinar will help managers not only retain top talent, but attract new talent seeking an environment in which to prosper.

Why should you attend : Every manager wishes for a motivated, productive team, but many managers don’t know how to make this wish a reality.
