Positive Psychology Coaching and Mindfulness Program for Positive Organizations

Positive Psychology Coaching is a scientifically-rooted approach to helping individuals and organizations to increase well-being, enhance and apply strengths, improve performance, and achieve valued goals. Positive Psychology Coaching has a variety of tools and interventions in order to increase well – being and positive relations at work. Two different fields are offered in order to help organizations to flourish, executive strength – based coaching and team coaching educational & experiential workshops.

Mindfulness is an evidence based approach, where it focuses on reducing stress and negative emotions as well as boosting well being and health. Mindfulness is the awareness that emerges through paying attention on purpose, in the present moment, and non judgmentally to the unfolding of experience moment by moment (Kabat – Zinn, 2003). Mindfulness based interventions has shown, stress and depression reduction (Kabat – Zinn, 2003), better concentration (Davis & Hayes, 2011), increasing wellness (Carmody & Baer, 2008).

Executive strength – based coaching: based on positive psychology interventions, it focuses on developing strengths, managerial skills and well being to managers and executives in order to inspire and influence positively their teams.

Team Coaching: interventions focuses on cultivating positive emotions, on reducing negative emotions and criticism, on teaching well being and on creating connections and meaningful relationships at work.

Tools and Interventions for Positive Organizations

  • Appreciative Inquiry: is the study of what gives life to human systems when they function at their best. This approach to personal change and organization change is based on the assumption that questions and dialogue about strengths, successes, values, hopes, and dreams are themselves transformational (Cooperrider, 2010), (ex. “Without being humble, describe what you value most about yourself, your work, your organization, Locate a moment that was a high point, when you felt most effective and engaged, etc).
  • The 4 D Model – Appreciative Inquiry: Discovery, Dream, Design, Destiny, for managers and executives, focusing on the positive core that your  organization has and developing programs to enhance the most positive potential, private sessions.
  • PERMA model for organizations (Seligman, 2011): Positive Emotions, Engagement, Relationships, Meaning and Accomplishment.
  • Psychometric tests on emotions, mindfulness and strengths.
  • Cultivating positive emotions such as compassion and self compassion (decreasing criticism), empathy, trust, calmness, gratefulness and satisfaction.
  • Reducing negative emotions and stress.
