Positive psychology can be defined as the science and practice of well-being. The latest research in mental health, neurobiology, and organizational psychology brings many implications for T&D philosophy and practice. For instance, that research describes a shift from a fixed view of financial, human and social capital to a more dynamic view based on psychological capital. That growth mindset brings countless opportunities to the field of talent development.
