Lessons in Leadership from Positive Psychology

How can we emerge from the stress-strain of Covid-times to thrive in our everyday lives? This Leadership Lab begins with a short lesson on a core concept of Positive Psychology: Resilience.

You’ll leave the workshop with a clear idea of how to step up to the unique challenges of leading yourself these next weeks and months to succeed at Skule and beyond. Pizza and refreshments provided. Available to registered Engineering students.
