Why would you take a course in Positive Psychology?
Happiness doesn’t just feel good. Its benefits extend to all domains of our life. Happy people tend to live longer, make more money, have better relationships, and contribute more productively to society.
In the Zone Positive lesson series, we explore the findings and applications that have emerged from the cutting-edge field of Positive Psychology. These lessons come together to present a comprehensive road map to a life well lived. For each topic, we discuss the science behind the findings, and offer practical steps you can take to actualize your potential, increase your productivity, and enhance your overall sense of meaning and fulfillment in life.
As an overview, Positive Psychology is organized around five core ingredients or pathways to a life-well lived: character strengths, positive emotions, engagement, meaning & purpose, and positive relationships. Learn More
These five core theories serve as the cornerstone of the science of a life well lived. However, they constitute only a segment of the research on well-being that has emerged from the field of Positive Psychology. In the Zone Positive series, we will be delving deeper into the findings of what makes people flourish in life. For example, in one lesson, we will be exploring the surprising power of a practice of gratitude in life. Another lesson will be dedicated to investigating the process of positive change. In it, you will learn how best to let go of those chronically unproductive habits and replace them with more effective ones in engendering the changes you desire. We also explore the science behind self-motivation and self-efficacy. You will be shown the most proven psychological tools for developing the will, self-reliance, and discipline to shape the world according to your vision. Another lesson will discuss how to become more resilient in the face of those obstacles that inevitably will show up in your path. And remember…this is beyond folk wisdom or time-honored common sense. The findings in these lessons are all supported by sound, empirical research.

Whether you are a coach interested in adding a powerful arsenal of tools to your practice; an employer looking to create a more harmonious and productive workplace; or just someone who wants more out of life or who is looking to feel better…you will gain a deep understanding of the psychological factors that most directly contribute to a flourishing individual or organization. And you will be introduced to the most effective, groundbreaking applications that you can utilize to create more meaning, fulfillment, and joy in your life.
