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:
You’ve probably heard that “knowing your why” is the heart of motivation, but perhaps accessing your why seems difficult. This is true for many of us. Join us for this accelerator where we will demystify the process of tapping into a sense of purpose and share practices that help you bring your unique why to life. Accelerate your purpose in your studies and in your work on a more regular basis with evidence-based methods that make your purpose accessible in your everyday activities. You will gain access to a reliable source of motivation that you can call on whenever you need it, and you will learn to work with others to help them tap into this source of inspiration as well. Accelerating our sense of purpose on a daily basis involves celebrating the contributions we make to a community, as well as elevating the contribution of others, so this accelerator will conclude with a fun and energizing celebration of all the people who contributed to our thriving this year.
