Hardwiring Happiness: Positive Brains = Better Health + Performance

The negativity bias, our tendency to look for what’s wrong and to gloss over or entirely miss the good, is hardwired in us. It made sense evolutionarily. This was how we survived. Yet this imbalance leads to chronic stress, anxiety and depression. What over a decade of research shows is that training your brain to be positive leads to greater success at work, better physical health and improved mental well-being. To overcome learned helplessness, we must create “wins” for our brain by training ourselves to be rational optimists who focus on what is working. Dr. Shapiro explains what positive psychology is, how much we can change, and practical applications and strategies for Hardwiring Happiness even in the midst of change and challenge.

Compassionate Leadership

Great leaders encourage collaboration, promote inclusion, and make their employees feel seen and heard. Their greatest tool? COMPASSION. Compassion isn’t a static trait that people either have or don’t have—we all have the ability to grow our compassion intentionally through practice. A clinical psychologist and renown expert in compassion, Dr. Shapiro uses her scientific and clinical expertise to give us concrete strategies for compassionate leadership. She shows us how to lead teams that are connected, collaborative, creative, and ultimately more successful. This presentation illuminates the science behind why kindness and compassion are not signs of weakness but sources of strength.

The Power of Attention

We’re in a focus crisis: we can’t pay attention, and it’s affecting our power to innovate and think deeply. In fact, research from Harvard shows the mind wanders on average 47% of the time. That means we are missing about half of our life. We risk losing our ability to finish long-term projects and connect with people around us, as well as losing contact with our deepest values and goals. Dr. Shauna Shapiro offers a science-based roadmap for reclaiming the power of attention and recovering our minds. She’ll teach you how to reverse exhaustion, get back your flow states, and forge real relationships at work and in your personal life. When we tap into that stillness, our minds will be sharpened to do anything we set them to, and we’ll have workplaces and organizations that are ready to embrace a focused, productive, creative mindset and achieve their goals.
