Finding Opportunity in Crisis: Navigating change and designing your new reality
In this time of crisis, it can be hard to look beyond our daily struggles. Many of us are using our time and energy in new ways—exposing our values and priorities and creating opportunities to reflect, assess, and design a new reality. In this webinar, you will be introduced to positive psychology strategies to help navigate the pandemic in ways that facilitate growth and transformation moving forward.
Parenting with Self-Compassion
Parenting during the pandemic feels like parenting a newborn again. Your entire life has changed and you feel ill-prepared for the emotional and physical demands. You’re exhausted, overwhelmed and there are always dishes and clothes to wash – no matter if your kids are toddlers or teenagers.
Parenting during a pandemic and trying to keep your children emotionally and physically healthy is hard. Parenting in a pandemic while trying to work remotely and home school your kids is harder. Doing any of this during these uncertain times is a daunting task even if you are healthy and economically stable.
If you struggle with any of these issues, join us for a session on how to parent with more self compassion and how to develop coping strategies that align with what matters most to you and your family.
Goal Setting Strategies that Improve Productivity & Performance

In this workshop you will learn about the science of goal setting and how to set the goals that help you thrive and stay motivated Participants will also learn how to develop the most important qualities you need for success and leave with a 30-day action plan.

Strengths Matter - Using Your Strengths to Succeed
Research in positive psychology has found that across cultures, there are 24 strengths that most people have. Knowing and using your top 5 "signature strengths" can help you increase "flow" moments (when we are totally immersed and engaged in what we are doing) and lead to more enjoyment, satisfaction and success. Research has shown that people achieve more when they use their strengths and learn how to manage their weaknesses. In this workshop you will learn how to apply your strengths to your current professional opportunities and develop an action plan to help you accelerate your progress.
