Is your team flourishing? The latest research on positive psychology and brain science shows us that by simply increasing positive emotion and adopting some evidence-based practices, we can create the environment for positive and resilient teams. Teams that flourish are more engaged, creative, innovative, and see more opportunities. Organizations with positive and resilient teams have higher employee and customer satisfaction, reduced turnover and lower levels of errors, stress and injury. Yet in most organizations, teamwork is not well developed. Join Deborah Connors (Deb) to find out how to kick-start these positive emotions in your team environment.

A captivating speaker, storyteller, author and workplace coach, Deb researches the latest breakthroughs in workplace and personal wellness around the globe. She has interviewed many of the leading thinkers from this field and examined the research on flourishing – both at work and at home.

In this session Deb will share some of the key insights from her recent book: A Better Place to Work: Daily Practices that Transform Culture, as it relates to building team positivity and resilience. This involves learning how to be mindful, how to move from vicious cycles to resilient cycles, how to practice gratitude, how to effectively debrief team projects and meetings, and other practices and habits that increase positivity and flourishing at work.
