Participants will learn the benefits of honing well-being as a leadership skill and learn the importance and value to enhance positive mindset shift in employees across the organization through a positive psychology framework and a coaching lens.  We will examine and build-on a comprehensive leadership well-being plan, and create actionable building blocks, to integrate learning.
