6 Questions to Kick Off the New Year

 

Three days for a professional development workshop could seem like a very long time to take off work.  But last month, as we entered the final day of our Positive Leadership workshop at the University for Peace, a participant marveled on how fast it had gone. "It's because I've been in flow!" she exclaimed, a reference to the idea that when we use our highest strengths towards something that we find meaningful, time flies!

 

To capture some highlights, here's a 'Top 6 Questions' list and how positive leaders might respond.

 

Questions and Answers: 

  • Q: Have an important topic to problem to resolve with your team at work?
    A: Use a "circle process" and pass an iguana around.
  • Q: Also have an interpersonal conflict do deal with?
    A: Don't be a turtle, be the owl!

Intrigued and want to learn more? Click here to get the full list and start the year right or check out our 'Designing Your Life: Innovating From the Inside Out' online course which covers many of these topics!  

Participants in the Positive Leadership workshop put together a final project to synthesize what they have learned.

As 2014 comes to a close, we wish you a very, very happy new year! To those of you who have particpated in our courses to date, thank you. To future participants, we hope you feel inspired to allow us to assist you in your personal/professional development through online courses, in-person workshops or through exploration of something new and exciting that hasn't yet begun!

 

Happy new year from the Centre!
