This course examines a variety of positive business strategies developed using research from applied positive psychology, appreciative inquiry and positive organizational scholarship and deeply explores how they can be applied in the spa, hospitality and wellness industries. Students will learn how to engage, motivate and lead a team of people to accomplish business goals while also creating a positive impact in the world. Topics will include developing a workplace culture, employee engagement and motivation, and strategies for goals and accomplishment. Students will also learn about "job crafting" as a way to create meaningful work for themselves and their employees. Using strategies based on strengths and values, they will learn not only how to maximize their own contribution to business goals, but also how to make the experience more meaningful on a personal level.
