What is THE mind retreat ABOUT

The art of leadership is to stimulate a positive attitude that allows finding constructive ways to master the challenges of your business.

Is optimism a valuable resource to drive business success? Research tells us: yes! Today’s business world is affected by what is described with the acronym VUCA (which stands for volatility, uncertainty, complexity, and ambiguity). Moreover, as extensive studies in the US army have shown, individual resilience and overall performance of teams can be significantly influenced by specific interventions that guide thinking and reflection.

This engaging online-course with six life virtual lectures and a weekly challenge for you to apply positive psychology makes leaders familiar with the most thrilling insights of cognitive psychology and neuroscience. It helps participants to understand cognitive biases and social dynamics that may have a substantial influence on corporate culture and performance. You will learn about practical models and tools to use to ensure best possible business decisions and foster a positive, target-focused working environment like the “post-mortem analysis” or the “what went well and why” exercise.
