Experiential Corporate Training on Positive Psychology

With Lisa Sansom, MAPP



In this 3-hour pre-conference workshop, Lisa Sansom will share her experience in designing and delivering experiential and interactive corporate workshops on a variety of positive psychology topics. Lisa's corporate sessions have been very highly rated, and she has over 12 years of corporate training expertise. In this workshop, you will not only experience the power of these positive interventions for yourself, but you will also learn how to deliver these experiences to your professional audiences. While these interventions and instructional techniques may be suitable for a wide variety of audiences, examples will be drawn primarily from the professional business world. 

Participants will:

  • Learn how to instruct specific constructs in positive psychology for a corporate audience, and how to make them relevant to business and work situations
  • Learn how to design corporate workshops with positive psychology principles built into the workshop design itself, not just as topics to be instructed
  • Actively participate in exercises which they may then use with a corporate audience
  • Have the opportunity to ask questions and share experiences teaching positive psychology in a business environment
