How can we improve the quality of our relationships not just with family and friends, but also with colleagues, neighbors, and strangers?
We encounter dozens of exchanges in our daily lives, be it in person or virtual. As social animals, we are highly influenced by immediate context, the larger culture, and the behavior and expectations of others. To what extent do situations shape our behaviour?
In this talk by Evie Rosett, teacher-researcher in positive psychology, find out the science behind social connection amongst people and in organisations. There are countless applications of social connection, in our personal and professional lives. Learn how you can improve workplace relations, and what are the factors that affect it!
The talk will be followed by the Course Preview of Postgraduate Diploma in Positive Organisational Psychology and Leadership, Postgraduate Diploma in Positive Education Strategies, and Master of Science Applied Positive Psychology.
