Enhancing Employee Engagement Through Positive Psychology - Webinar By TrainHR
Venue: Online Training
|Event Date/Time: Jul 26, 2012||End Date/Time: Jul 26, 2012|
The relatively new discipline of positive psychology - the scientific study of human flourishing â€“ 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 â€œIf you work hard, you will become successful, and once you become successful, then youâ€™ll be happyâ€ is actually the other way around: Rather, â€œhappiness 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 employeesâ€™ 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 todayâ€™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 donâ€™t know how to make this wish a reality. By focusing on employees strengths and accomplishments and by coaching them to develop their skills-rather than chastising and criticizing-you can enhance employee engagement and help your team to thrive. This webinar explains the basics of positive psychology and how to utilize its principles in effective performance coaching.
