Psychological Capital (Resilience Based Program) – 8 June
June 8 - 9:00 am - 12:30 pm$150
Human psychological capital (PsyCap) is a core construct for wellbeing and thriving. In practice PsyCap is characterised by (1) having confidence (efficacy) to take on and put in the necessary effort to succeed at challenging tasks; (2) making a positive attribution (optimism) about succeeding now and in the future; (3) persevering toward goals and, when necessary, redirecting paths to goals (hope) to succeed; and (4) when beset by problems and adversity, sustaining and bouncing back and even beyond (resilience) to attain success.
Higher levels of PsyCap in the workplace are associated with higher levels of job satisfaction, organisational commitment, and wellbeing. Specifically, employees are found to be more open and less cynical about organisational change, resulting in higher performers and staff who are better able to problem-solve and respond positively to setbacks.
Developing and building PsyCap has real benefits for both individuals and organisations in enhancing workplace wellbeing and developing ongoing resilience.
