Research shows that developing happiness is a significant factor in success and thriving at work and home, and that these capabilities can be learned. In fact, increasing happiness and fulfillment may be one of the most productive things people can do to thrive both personally and professionally.

Happiness in the Digital Era

Bridging the happiness gap between the virtual and real world

Description:
Technology is often a key ingredient to being efficient, effective, and successful; however, the grass is not always greener in cyberspace. Our modern relationship with technology is also making it more difficult to switch off and unplug, which is taking a toll on our energy, draining our happiness, and taxing our mental health. Using fresh insights based on the latest research, participants will learn how to effectively leverage technology as a tool to enhance performance, increase well-being, and boost happiness.

Learning Objectives:
·     Understand the significant ways that technology is changing behaviour and impacting mental health.
·     Examine the direct and indirect effects that social media and smartphone addiction has on mood, performance, and well-being.
·     Explore the relationship between autonomy and happiness, how to cope with a lack of control, and how to focus on what is important.
·     Learn evidence-based strategies that reduce distraction while maintaining connection.

Creating A Happy Mindset

The art and science of true happiness

Description:
Happiness is more than an emotion, it’s a mindset. Happy people think differently, and research confirms that a happy mindset can be learned. Creating a happy mindset isn’t about eliminating stressful, frustrating, or difficult experiences, rather it’s about developing a resilient mindset and the self-confidence to know that you can overcome any challenges or obstacles. Using Dr. Mandich’s scientific framework, participants will learn how to shift the way they think and make the most out of their mental resources.

Learning Objectives:
• Understand how to use positive psychology and neuroscience to shift your thinking, break old patterns, and harness the power of perception to boost happiness.
• Develop interpersonal courage, compassionate strength, and strategies for peace of mind, no matter what is happening in your life.
• Learn how to get out of autopilot, shift fear into action, and encourage a healthy expression of a wide range of emotions.
• Examine three questions you need to ask to be happy and learn how and why you need to stop seeking happiness, and instead learn to see it.

How to Build Resilience, Boost Happiness, and Thrive (Even During Uncertain Times)

Rethinking resilience, coping with anxiety, and sustaining positive change

Description:
It’s often said that happiness is a choice, but especially during difficult or stressful times it can be much easier said than done; yet, research suggests that challenging times can actually increase happiness. Studies on earthquakes, tsunamis, economic crises, and on people handling the front lines of human suffering and trauma have led to some surprising insights about happiness in the wake of what might otherwise seem to be indubitable catastrophes. Using cutting-edge science and her own research findings, Dr. Gillian Mandich will share what you need to know to pandemic-proof your mindset and repair the mental damage caused by difficult times. You will learn evidence-based tools and proven strategies to curb fear and anxiety, build resilience, and cultivate happiness.

Learning Objectives:
·     Identify barriers and challenges that contribute to fear, stress, and anxiety, and learn how to successfully overcome them.
·     Explore how to navigate inner turmoil and cope in the face of uncertainty.
·     Recognize overt and subtle signs of stress and common blind spots that impact mental health.
·     Understand the importance of social connection, how to combat loneliness, and build meaningful relationships.
·      Learn scientifically proven tools and strategies to increase resilience, cultivate peace of mind, and create lasting happiness.
