Lunch & Learn: A Positive Approach to Leadership

September 22, 2020 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm CDT

$15 – $25

In this presentation, Dr. Kyle Luthans will discuss how leaders with strong positive psychological resources such as Hope, Efficacy, Resilience, and Optimism (i.e., the “HERO” within) not only have the ability to bounce back after difficult times, but they can also create a contagion effect which can spread positivity throughout an organization. These inner resources are known collectively as positive psychological capital, or simply PsyCap for short.

In this presentation, you will learn about:

– Background and meaning of PsyCap
– Discover the “HERO” within – Hope, Efficacy, Resilience, and Optimism
– Strategies for developing and leveraging the HERO within for improved leadership effectiveness
