WORKPLACE LEADERSHIP, TEAM DYNAMICS AND WELLNESS
Janet offers workplace consulting, trainings and presentations that focus on the science of positive psychology and the appreciative inquiry method to drive the organization's goals while also enhancing individual performance, team dynamics and leadership.
Positive Psychology and High Performance Work Teams -- For Leaders
Thinking patterns, including pessimism, inflexibility, and mindless reactivity are risk factors that inhibit good team dynamics and workplace performance. However, research in positive psychology demonstrates that healthier thinking styles can be learned that foster creativity, engagement and resilience. This session explores this exciting research as it applies to high performing workplaces and individual employee effectiveness. Janet uses science, personal stories and practical, hands-on exercises to establish an awareness and practice of these principles and skills.
Your Positive Psychology Advantage -- For Employees
This session takes the content from "Positive Psychology and High Performing Work Teams" and addresses the techniques and application as it applies to individual employees. It can be an overview in an hour session or expanded into a four session series on different days or in the same half day.
of Leadership -- For Leaders
This session presents up to the 14 paradoxes from Charles Edmunson's
book, Paradoxes of Leadership.
Charles Edmunson was one of those special leaders who knew how to
bring out the best in his employees.
a Light on Unconscious Bias
Many of us try very hard not to be biased. But the fact is that we
all are to some extent, but it is happening in our unconscious brains.
For organizations to thrive, it is crucial to understand how and where
this unconscious bias comes from, how it manifests itself, and how
to increase awareness of it in order to neutralize it. In this highly
interactive and guilt-free workshop we’ll explore how we miss
seeing our various biases. To shine a light on them we’ll learn
inclusive strategies that will affirm, welcome and connect us to others.
In doing so, we’ll be treating our colleagues and others with
honor, respect and dignity so they and the organization can realize
their full potential.

Communication -- For Leaders and/or Employees
Poor communication can cause unneeded problems in interpersonal work
relationships. This session uses an assessment, practical learning
activities and individual exploration in balancing inquiry and advocacy.
Using the Appreciative Inquiry Method -- For Leaders and/or Employees
The Appreciative Inquiry method uses probing questions that first
reveal when the group and/or individual has done well in the past
in the area of discussion (i.e. team dynamics, communication, etc.).
Then it systematically builds on those successes to look at what the
individual or team would look like if the successes continued to be
applied into the future. Finally the individual or team determines
how they could sustain these.
