Who is this event for: Everyone! From new coaches to seasoned MCCs!
The Positive Psychology movement has swept through the mental health and coaching fields providing a new and innovative model that looks at human behavior through the lens of strengths, as opposed to deficits. Focusing on strengths allows us to tap into an individual’s potential and enhance their sense of purpose and feelings of satisfaction, both at work and personally. These powerful outcomes are attained by using evidence-based techniques and tools, such as identifying character strengths, being intentional about activating them, and being able to spot and develop them in yourself and others.
The even cooler thing is that these techniques are linked to various positive chemical changes in the brain! When you get intentional about activating strengths in yourself and others, your brain releases chemicals that act as a healing agent to your brain and your body. The overall goals of using strengths-based techniques in coaching are to help the individual you are working with reach a place of greater self-understanding, hope and optimism, and ultimately, to initiate behaviors that allow for flourishing in their daily lives.
This experiential workshop is designed by Dr. Kayla LeLeux-LaBarge, business psychologist and executive coach at Equilibria Leadership Consulting. It will include the following takeaways:
● Brief overview of the history of Positive Psychology
● Understand the benefits of using strength-based models in coaching
● Use of strengths-based assessment tools
● Use of several strengths-based coaching techniques
● Building strength-based teams and cultures
