Workshop #389):  How Can You Increase Job Productivity and Enjoyment? 

In this workshop, we will go over three factors that can increase your job enjoyment and your colleagues' job enjoyment. We will do exercises in Strengths, Flow, and Optimism.
This is a lively, active, hands-on workshop: you will move around the room and have several exercises.

Suggestion: To make the Strengths part more personal and active, I suggest you fill out one questionnaire online sometime before the workshop (for example, the night before). Go to www.authentichappiness.com and take the 20-40 minute the VIA Signature Strengths Questionnaire.


Plenary #390):  Increase Three Factors Critical for Job Productivity and Enjoyment 

Have you ever wondered how to keep employees interested in and engaged in their jobs? Are you yourself sometimes bored or detached from your work? Here we examine three techniques to increase employee engagement - whether you're the employee or the employer.


Plenary #402):  New Positive Psychology Results for BEHAVIOR MODIFICATION 

People sometimes find themselves addicted to certain behaviors. And they have the resolve to change, but not the tools to change.

Now Positive Psychology highlights some tools to change behaviors. How can you modify behaviors for good? What are some tools and techniques? What tools and techniques will work for you? In what order can you combine the tools of positive psychology towards behavior modification?

In this talk, we will discuss self-regulation, the happiness-choice tradeoff, the Ben Franklin method, creating new trigger activities, lessons from goal theory and hope theory, and incremental successes.

Workshop #389):  How Can You Increase Job Productivity and Enjoyment?

In this workshop, we will go over three factors that can increase your job enjoyment and your colleagues' job enjoyment. We will do exercises in Strengths, Flow, and Optimism.
This is a lively, active, hands-on workshop: you will move around the room and have several exercises. For Strengths, we will tell strengths stories and build a strengths structure. For Flow, we will discuss work conditions favorable to flow. For Optimism, we will go over explanatory styles and discuss resilience.

Suggestion: To make the Strengths part more personal and active, I suggest you fill out one questionnaire online sometime before the workshop (for example, the night before). Go to www.authentichappiness.com and take the 20-40 minute the VIA Signature Strengths Questionnaire.

Plenary #390):  Increase Three Factors Critical for Job Productivity and Enjoyment

We will discuss in detail 1) Strengths, 2) Flow, and 3) Optimism as three factors that can increase your job enjoyment and decrease turnover at companies. Using your Strengths at work is one of two components most correlated to job satisfaction. How can people use their strengths most at work? How can you do more of that which you do best? The psychological state of Flow and engagement with the task at hand, sometimes to the point of being oblivious to surroundings, is a state many employers seek to capture. What conditions at work most contribute to achieving this state of flow? How does Optimism differ as an explanatory style for good and bad events? When is optimism not the answer? Sometimes, flexibility and accuracy are needed to keep optimism in check. How can you most increase optimism at work?

Plenary #402):  New Positive Psychology Results for BEHAVIOR MODIFICATION

People sometimes find themselves addicted to food, to drugs, to alcohol, to people-pleasing, to shopping, to mindless time-wasting. And they have the resolve to change, but not the tools to change.

Now Positive Psychology highlights some tools to change behaviors. How can you modify behaviors for good? What are some tools and techniques? What tools and techniques will work for you? What’s the first thing you should do, and then what’s the second thing? In what order can you combine the tools of positive psychology towards behavior modification?

In this talk, we will discuss self-regulation, the happiness-choice tradeoff, the Ben Franklin method, creating new trigger activities, lessons from goal theory and hope theory, and incremental successes.

(Sources of information are books and articles by Locke, Latham, Lopez, Snyder, Seligman, Reivich, Bandura, Baumeister, Graybiel, Schwartz, and Franklin.)
