September 28th, 2011 by Amanda Potter Leave a reply »

Zircon are recommending a Positive Psychology course hosted by Lucy Ryan of Positive Insights to our clients, team and associates. Unique to the UK, this course is the second of two Master Classes that make up our programme in ‘Positive Psychology in Practice’. Aimed at coaches, leaders, trainers and consultants, this highly interactive programme enables you to explore and understand the advanced application of positive psychology and integrate an extended range of evidence based tools and techniques into your day to day practice.

This programme complements and builds on the Foundation Masterclass:

“Positive Psychology programmes should probably be mandatory for senior and middle management embarking on any serious corporate, structural or culture, change initiative. I found Lucy’s programme an outstanding and practical insight into building positivity and resilience within the business organisation in a time of challenge and change” (Patrick Kennedy, Vice President, Field Operations, Hertz Europe)
