Positive Relationship Workshop, October 21, 2015

Do you have a partner? If so, would you call your relationship positive? What is a positive relationship anyway?

According to the experts, a positive relationship is one where both parties feel free to be themselves and at the same time can ask for what they need in a positive,concrete and specific way. This sometimes isn’t easy as judgement, criticism, expectations and our deep routed past baggage often get in the way.

In this Engish/German language workshop, you will learn how to find and be your authentic self in your partnership. Using time-tested role plays, you will also practice the techniques on how to ask for what you need without arguing or feeling unappreciated, items that often find their way into relationships. Participants will learn the process on how to support their partners and give them with they need and at the same time not losing yourself in the process.

Randall Birnberg, a Certified Positive Psychology Coach and Social Psychology PhD Researcher on “Life Satisfaction” will guide you through the science of Positive Relationships and give you hands-on techniques showing how to create that perfect partnership. You will walk away with tools designed to, in the end, make you a happier person in your relationships. Because isn’t that what we all deserve to be….happy.

We strongly recommend that you also bring your partner to this extremely valuable and useful workshop.

See you soon!

Kennen Sie das Potential zum Glücklichsein, das in Ihnen steckt? August 18, 2015

Der ein oder andere wird sich jetzt fragen: Was ist „Positive Psychologie“ (PP)?

PP ist ein neuer Forschungs-Schwerpunkt der Psychologie und beschäftigt sich mit der Erforschung der Stärken der Menschen und den Bereichen, die das Leben lebenswerter machen: positive Emotionen, positiven Charakter und positive Strukturen. Diese Stärken zu trainieren bringt mehr Zufriedenheit und Lebensqualität, als sich mit den Schwächen der Psyche zu beschäftigen. Laut PP ist Glück erlernbar und kann damit langfristig zu mehr Lebensfreude führen.

Positive Relationship Workshop July 15, 2015
According to Positive Psychology, the science of happiness, a positive relationship is one where each person is an active participant in helping create the other one’s positive future. Each of us needs to fully ‘show up’, be present, listen, express ourselves and care for the other….that requires time and attention. A relationship where two people have the time to grow…one that is supportive, motivating and enriching. This means in all our relationships i.e., romantic partnerships, parent/child, boss/employee and our friendships.

In this workshop, the participants will first work toward self-awareness and mindfulness. Once achieved and understood, techniques and methods will be taught to learn positive communication, active listening and the art of giving clear and constructive feedback. During the workshop, we will do role plays of typical daily situations and practice productive and fruitful skills that support a positive outcome for both involved. The presentation will end with some ‘take aways’ intended to have the participants start their new found skills straight away.

What is the top priority of our children? – Happiness, gratefulness, love, compassion, health, kindness, satisfaction. What is school teaching our children? – Math, discipline, literacy, test-taking, thinking skills. Unfortunately, there seems to be no overlap in the two lists…until now!
Positive Education in schools can be defined as “creating an environment in the classroom that supports the individual strengths, personal motivations and the overall well-being of each and every student.” Theory has it that a positive atmosphere in the classroom is conducive to a more effective and more productive learning experience. This lecture will speak to the history of PosEd and its growing popularity in the last 10 years or so, giving examples of schools introducing strength development and wellness.

Keynote – The Secret of Positive Psychology in the Workplace

Eine weise Person sagte einmal: “People will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but they will never forget how you made them feel.” Sie sind ein Manager mit einer großen Personalverantwortung und eine Ihrer größten Herausforderungen ist es Ihr Personal zu motivieren. Denn motivierte, engagierte und glückliche Mitarbeiter führen zu weniger sinnlosen Ausgaben durch Krankheit und sogar Burn-Out und somit zu mehr Umsatz. Lob, Anerkennung und Wertschätzung von Vorgesetzten tun nicht weh, auch wenn dies eine landläufige Meinung in unserem Land zu sein scheint. In seinem Vortrag wird Sie Randall Birnberg ein Certified Positive Psychology Coach gebürtig aus Chicago mit Augenzwinkern auf die amerikanische Reise nehmen ins Innere von Unternehmen wie sie sein könnten in einer besseren, produktiveren und fröhlicheren Arbeitswelt. Möchten Sie lernen wie Sie Ihre Mannschaft begeistern können und das auch noch wissenschaftlich belegt, dann besuchen Sie Randall Birnbergs Vortrag.
