Positive Psychology Micro Lab
SOMO Micro Lab - SOcial-eMOtional Intelligence + Leadership
Successful people think differently. They have the ability to bounce back, persevere, and make things happen even in the face of adversity. In this innovative learning laboratory, we'll be exposed to the burgeoning research in Positive Psychology, the science of success and happiness. We will discover how we’re genetically predisposed to negativity, and how switching this habit of thinking to something more positive takes intention, attention and effort. Come learn some scientifically informed strategies for how to build psychosocial muscle and in turn, get SO'MO of what you want in life (at home, work, and every place in between).
