The Power of Positive Emotions

The art of “being positive” is perhaps one of the most misunderstood skills. We think that some people are just born positive and others are not. Many of us can struggle to feel positive when things are difficult. A positive outlook is an essential emotional intelligence skill that anyone can build. People who have developed this ability are able to see the opportunities in any given situation and realistically move forward with skill and perseverance. In this workshop we will focus on techniques to help us build this skill.
