How Your Thinking Can Improve the Bottom Line

According to the latest brain research, our thinking is at the core of performance. Optimism has been attributed to higher performance and the achievement of higher-level goals. Yet most people spend an inordinate amount of time worrying and criticizing themselves, which does not support successful performance. This workshop is based on leading research from the University of Michigan in the field of positive psychology at work. Shannon has taught resilience to over 1,000 U.S. Army sergeants as part of the Master Resiliency Training program under Dr. Karen Reivich.


In this workshop, you will learn:

  • How thinking and emotional patterns drive behavior
  • Techniques for remaining optimistic and forward thinking even when facing set-backs
  • How to depersonalize and attribute failure to something temporary and specific
  • Through the case study format, how other individuals have achieved resilient thinking
