Solution Focused Leadership: From Problems Focused to Making the Magic Happen (3 hour session)

Solution Focused Leadership: From Problems Focused to Making the Magic Happen (3 hour session)

Description

Consider this quote ‘You cannot have a positive life in a negative mind’?

Do you ever feel like you are just focusing on the negative in people? Do you think that work would be easier if only you could focus more on the positive rather than the negative? The reality is that leaders need to lead as well as manage so we cannot avoid dealing with the tough stuff. The research from a positive psychology perspective suggests that there is untapped potential awaiting us if we move from problem focused to solution focused leadership. But how do we get to this place if all we can see around us is problems and issues? Could this really be possible?

In this three hour workshop we will explore the enormous potential positive based leadership can have on you and your colleagues. We will unpack in practical terms the things you can do both with your teams and for yourself to unleash the power of positivity.

Upon completion of this workshop, you will be able to:

  • Identify strategies from positive psychology that can support you and your team
  • Understand the power positivity plays in leadership
  • Identify how to transform your mind set from a negative one to a positive one
