In our modern world, employees are drowning in increasing levels of stress, burnout, loneliness, and lifestyle-related chronic illness while organizations suffer from the effects of low employee engagement and high turnover. As a result, both humans and businesses are failing to reach their full potential. Business owners and leaders can mitigate these challenges, though, by leveraging the power of human connection through “positive systems.” Positive systems is a new field of research that shows that when we are connected to one another, striving to make each other better, we not only raise the success of the entire group, we exponentially increase our individual potential.

This talk will explore how business owners and leaders can develop and nurture positive systems within their organizations to improve workplace wellbeing, employee engagement, and organizational culture and transform their organizations from mediocre to extraordinary.

Learning Objectives
• Grasp a full understanding of the current state of employee health, wellbeing, and engagement in the US workforce and why it’s a problem we must solve.
• Learn about the body of research on the importance of human connection and positive systems, led by Dr. Shawn Achor.
• Understand how to apply the tactical strategies born out of this research to tap into human potential, foster workplace wellbeing, elevate organizational culture, and improve business outcomes.
