This program is for people struggling with uncertainty at work due to issues such as changes in policies, regulations, systems, leadership or downsizing. It’s natural to worry about how upcoming changes in our organization will affect our work and lives. In fact, we’re wired to anticipate the worst possible outcome. Although this is an important part of our survival instinct, there are things we can do to shift our thinking and stay more positive. Instead of feeling anxious and stressed, we can get better at focusing on the opportunities that the change may bring. The result is a more enjoyable work experience, a smoother transition, and higher productivity. In this interactive and engaging program, people will: - Understand why we become so focused on what we don't like about the change and lose sight of the bigger picture - Learn simple but powerful science-based strategies to increase our resiliency to the pressures and challenges of change and uncertainty so we can function at peak performance - Discover simple tricks to create new rituals and habits so we remember to use these strategies Imagine laughter, smiles and lots of great energy as people share the good things that have happened to them in the past day. This is just one of the activities I do to show people how SHIFTING our focus from what we don't like to the good things around us can improve our attitude towards the changes in our work (and life). Noticing the positive isn't hard, we just don't remember that we have a CHOICE. I not only share great strategies to make the choice easier, I also provide tips that help us remember in every set of circumstances, we get to create our own experience. Increasing our optimism and positivity not only makes change easier and our work more enjoyable, studies show it actually makes us more productive, more creative, we take in more information, make better decisions and build better relationships. People tell me how much they love this program because they leave with simple tools they can start using right away to make a difference in their stress levels - they have strategies to take back control even in the face of major change. I spent 20 years as a scientist in biotechnology and became certified in Positive Psychology in 2013 because, based on my experience (small startups to large corporations), if there is one place we need help staying positive, it's at work.
