Appreciate your top five strengths and discover practices to blend mindfulness and character strengths to successfully manage stress and enhance performance
with Ruth Pearce

The research says it all. Mindfulness leads to better health, reduced stress, and greater focus. Yet, despite the evidence, many of us don’t incorporate mindfulness day-to-day. More powerful than mindfulness alone, is the combination of mindfulness and character strengths. Research tells us that character strengths use leads to higher engagement and productivity.

Come learn about your levels of mindfulness, discover your top strengths and leave with practical resources to combine the two every day.

Learning objectives:
Understand the five facets of mindfulness and how they relate to you.
Appreciate your top five strengths and discover practices to blend mindfulness and character strengths to successfully manage stress and enhance performance.

Please take a moment and do these Assessments.  Bring the results with you to the Webinar !

Presenter: Ruth Pearce
Ruth PearceWith more than 20 years of experience of running large and small programs, as well as leading large and small teams, Ruth Pearce has a wealth of direct experience and lessons she has learned directly from doing. She has been where you are now, acting as part of a team with a larger purpose, or as the compassionate leader of a team driving towards the goal. Whether that team is a collocated team with a short-term deliverable, or an international team spanning multiple continents, time-zones and work styles, Ruth has direct experience of engaging the team to achieve extraordinary results.

In addition to her wealth of experience, Ruth’s love of learning supports her passion for helping teams and their managers bring their best selves to work, as she continues to accumulate wisdom and knowledge from as many sources as she is able. Certified in Positive Psychology, an avid user of the VIA Strengths Assessment, as well as a certified Gallup Strengthsfinder coach and coach trainer. She is also the author of the 2018 book, Be a Project Motivator: Unlock the Secrets of Strengths-Based Project Management.

Ruth says if she had to distill all the lessons she has learned from her 30 years of working in everything from a stockbroker to State Government, and from a not-for profit professional organization to an investment bank, it would result in one word - ENGAGE.

Engage your brain
Engage your ears
Engage your strengths
Engage with others
Engage others’ strengths
Engage your passion and compassion
Engage naysayers
Engage everyone in all reasonable ways
