CPD 3 2015: Positive Psychology and High Performance Teams

IMI CPD For Managers

Our third workshop in our 2015 series of CPD Workshops for Managers kicks of on Thursday October 22nd, with a session on Positive Psychology and High Performance Teams led by Alan Lyons.

This CPD Workshop will outline the psychology of positive change to address the following 5 chronic problems found in today’s teams:

  • A Problem Focus – Consists of a contagious mind-set which seeks to re-enforce what is not working, leading to a breeding ground for cynicism and suspicion.
  • Lack of Clarity of Purpose – There is much uncertainty in today’s organisations. Generally, people are not resistant to change, however they tend not to respond well to ‘forced change’ as they do not feel meaningfully involved.
  • Low Trust – The impact of working in a low trust environment is crippling – even completing simple tasks can be slow and costly.
  • Underutilised Potential – According to a Gallup poll only 20% of people feel like they get to work on what they do best every day in work.
  • Poor Execution Systems – There is a tremendous lack of accountability around an organisation’s most important goals, with no clear understanding of the key success indicators.

Participants should leave with a greater insight into how positive psychology can be applied to help your team: Make better productivity choices, Identify and Leverage strengths, Create a rhythm of accountability around the most important goals, Improve communication, collaboration, creativity, innovation and engagement and Increase its ‘trust account’.
