Health & Wellness
Reach your organization’s full potential by focusing on the health and wellness of yourself and others
A healthy organization is made up of healthy individuals. Positive mental health and well-being can help everyone cope with challenges and improve focus and productivity at work. Learning strategies to sustain and improve your own mental health, in addition to those that you interact with on a regular basis, will create a healthier environment for all to flourish. Through our certificates and courses, you will learn new skills and perspectives to guide you and your organization through everyday challenges, as well as those that go beyond the ordinary.
Building Positive Workplace Cultures
Do you want to influence how your workplace looks and feels by developing a more positive culture? This certificate will empower participants to uncover ways to enhance their workplace relationships using the principles of Positive Psychology. Learn how to become a “positive” leader through the implementation of positively strategic approaches. A positive lens has been demonstrated to foster confidence, promote enthusiasm and broaden resilience.
Using a scaffolding approach to the required courses, learners will explore how Positive Psychology can help optimize self, others, and entire organizations. When we want to influence change in any setting, we must first start with a clear awareness of our own contributions and presence. The certificate has been designed to foster the exploration of these principles as they relate to ourselves, our relationships with others, and finally with our workplaces.
Upon completion of this certificate, you will have a “positive plan” to use in your professional, as well as your personal life. Each of the four required courses requires approximately 15 learner hours. An elective course must also be taken. Cost per required course: $795
