Happiness is Job One
Workplace Content Area

Did you know we have the happiness recipe backwards? Research into how humans survive, succeed and thrive has changed how an entire branch of medicine - psychology - is practiced. Instead of being focused on problems, positive psychology now focuses on what's good and how to have more good. In this workshop, attendees will work with eight free tools in order to discover which two or three they are comfortable incorporating into their lives. They'll be given a self-test to take at a later time, and then encouraged to use their new tools for two weeks and to re-take the test and see how the results have changed. This presentation is a short version of a two-hour workshop that's available to businesses, associations and organizations, designed to boost morale, productivity and the bottom line.
 
Learning Objectives:
1. Take personal responsibility for their own attitude, and help others to do the same.
2. Understand that not everyone has the same ability to be happy, but everyone can be happier if they make the effort.
3. Be empowered to have a more positive affect on others, both at work and in their personal life.

Speaker: Sandy Weaver Carman, CEO, Voicework on Demand, Inc.

Sandy Weaver Carman Do you know we have the equation for happiness backwards? Do you know what makes you happy? Do you know the correlation between happiness and your bottom line? Our speaker today has spent the last 35 years making people happy as a radio personality. Now she runs an audio production company, is an award-winning author as well as an American Kennel Club judge. She and her dogs have earned titles in conformation, obedience, agility, rally, hiking, dancing, rat-finding, and have even brightened people's lives with therapy work, and all of that makes her very happy. When she's not having fun with her dogs, she's producing audio books, pruning bushes that grow WAY too fast, and telling any guests that drop by that the house was perfectly clean... (long pause) ...yesterday! Please join me in welcoming happiness development expert, speaker, author and dern good pooper-scooper, Sandy Weaver Carman!
