Positive Psychology and the Future of Assessments & Learning: Latest Developments for the HR Practioner

Our research shows that companies in the GCC spend an average of USD 19,395 per graduate and USD 33,200 per leader annually towards learning and development. A majority of this budget is spent on developing soft skills such as communication and team-work. However, recent developments in positive psychology have proven that assessing and developing attributes such as grit, resilience, self-efficacy and positive mindset are absolutely crucial for your workforce, both for nationals and expats. This engaging session by leading experts David Jones & Radhika Punshi will showcase the latest research and practice of strengths-based approaches to psychometric assessment and learning. A session not-to-be-missed.
