Today's workplaces have been strained by the crises they face internally and externally, impacting organizational life and productivity adversely. In this course, we'll use applied positive psychology to learn how to create flourishing workplaces. This course will include discussions on key topics in applied positive psychology, including strengths and virtues, hope, positive emotions, meaning, authenticity, and self-awareness. The offering also will elaborate on the role of managers and leaders in integrating a positive psychology framework into the organizational life to develop thriving work communities.   

This course will be delivered remotely. The offering will include lectures, workshops, and seminars. Our approach will emphasize participation in synchronous (Zoom) sessions; however, if students find themselves unable to participate due to technology, caregiving obligations, economic disruption, health risk, or illness, they can work with faculty to pursue alternate options to earn related credit.
