Are We Having Fun Yet? Applying Positive Psychology in Challenging Times - Sponsored by Wimba

Friday, January 15 | 11:30AM–1:00PM | Harborside Ballroom C
Session Type: Professional Development
This session will explore some ideas about how you can contribute creative solutions and maintain staff morale and productivity, even when your own energy may be sagging. For many, this past year has been the hardest ever on IT and institutional budgets—and it isn't over yet. We've seen, or made, painful decisions about how to cut programs and positions. We've been asked to do more with less. Each of us needs to use this crisis to hone our leadership skills from wherever we are in our organizations. This session will apply the concepts of positive psychology to help us maintain a constructive outlook while cultivating colleagues' and staffs' productive attitudes toward themselves, each other, and the organization. Techniques such as visualization, building on strengths, and appreciative inquiry will be explored.
