Apply a creative, joyful lens to the work you do! This virtual workshop will help us explore how to get & keep joy in the workplace.
Why explore joy? Research shows the significant benefits of joy, to our minds and bodies. In addition to feeling better, joyful workplaces are 31% more productive! Joyful employees take 10x fewer sick days! Joy is a powerful tool for our work. Through interactive exercises we’ll utilize the power of creative thinking to discover the role of joy in our work experience, helping us shift perspective and see our organizations and ourselves in a new way.
P.S. A joy workshop is just that - joyful and fun! This won't be your standard Zoom meeting. Cameras on, we'll be interacting a lot. Invite your entire team or cross-department teams to join for one flat rate! If you are a nonprofit, educational, or government entity that needs a reduced fee, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
