In our reshaped, interconnected and hyper-transparent world, HOW we behave at work can be a competitive advantage. This session will help you explore ways you can help your organizations do well by doing good. Aristotle described that a life well lived was one that strives for eudaimonia: the fulfillment we realize when we bring our highest selves to a meaningful mission. One way we can intentionally design flourishing organizations is by building cultures that enable eudaimonia in our everyday pursuits. Exploring case studies from the facilitators work with organizations, and diving into experiential activities, we’ll use the positive psychology framework of PERMA to explore the HOW of work, identifying the habits, rituals and practices that cultivate more eudaimonia in the workplace.
