About the Thriving Accelerator Workshops:
A Thriving Accelerator is an immersive workshop from the Center for Positive Organizations about a topic in the science of thriving. After completing a workshop, students will be able to immediately implement their learnings to create lasting personal and organizational impact.

Workshop description:
Calling all leaders who want to create happiness in their organizations! You may not know it, but compassion competence is one of the most significant contributors to happiness. Compassion competence in a group is also a source of innovation, adaptability, well being, and resilience in organizations. This accelerator will give you everything you need to understand compassion from a scientific point of view. You will leave equipped with four ways to handle distress that offer real relief to you and to others who are suffering. If you’ve ever felt helpless in the face of difficulties or lost about what to do when others are stressed and burned out, this accelerator will offer you specific ways to approach and alleviate distress so that you can think, feel, and act with greater confidence and competence. Join us to accelerate your capacity to express compassion for yourself and for others and to harness compassion as a force for personal and professional success.
