Foundations for Flourishing: Leveraging the Science of Positive Psychology for Greater Resilience, Well-Being, and Performance



Ready to step off the hamster wheel of ceaseless striving?

High-achieving women tend to believe the formula for happiness is straightforward: we set lofty goals and work fastidiously to meet them, certain that achieving "success" will bring us satisfaction. But science shows that this logic is backward. Although we THINK success will lead to happiness, the reality is that well-being actually fuels success. And the key building blocks for well-being are not necessarily what you might think. In this webinar, you will:

  • Learn how to apply evidence-backed insights from positive psychology (the science of human flourishing) and techniques from executive coaching to enhance your personal and professional satisfaction 
  • Explore the foundational elements of well-being and learn strategies for optimizing your experience of them
  • Walk away with a toolkit of exercises and an action plan for pursuing your own authentic vision of success


When: Wednesday, December 6th 1:00-2:00pm ET / 7:00-8:00pm CET

Where: Zoom – link will be provided upon registration
