Adding Value(S) At Work: How Applied Positive Psychology Can Help Organizations Do The Right Thing

with Andrew Soren

Oct 10: 7:00 - 8:30pm

Many positive organizational scholars and practitioners subscribe to Aristotle’s notion that eudaimonia is the end to which all of our human efforts aim. Typically translated as happiness, well-being or flourishing, eudaimonia has become a North Star for many in the field – pointing research and practice in the direction of increasing employee engagement and meaning while reducing burnout and other forms of professional ill-being.

Yet embedded in Aristotle’s definition of eudaimonia were principles about the difficult daily practice of virtue and questions about how we can do the right thing at the right time in the right way. Organizations often struggle to balance the goal of maximizing shareholder value with other outcomes that relate to a sense of the greater good that Aristotle was striving for. Harnessing recent research, case studies and personal experience, this talk is designed to engage the CPPA community in dialogue about how applied positive psychology can help us connect to our most human values.
