Doug Gray

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.

What does positive psychology mean for you as a T&D professional?

Doug Gray will provide exercises and examples from his original research and leadership consulting practices. You can imitate these evidence-based practices immediately.

You will also learn how to apply the PERMA model (positive emotions, engagement, relationship, meaning, and accomplishments) to your talent development practice.

Join us to learn how to apply positive psychology in your talent development practice and your life!
