How to become a positive leader before 2019 – at Costa Rica’s UPEACE

December 4, 2018

When was the last time you invested in your own professional and personal development? With increasing demands on our time and energy, it’s often difficult to find a good time to put work on hold for a few days. However, just as we take time out of the day to sleep since we know we need rest to be effective, it’s equally important to make time every year for self-renewal.

The University for Peace’s Centre for Executive Education might be able to help you take that needed pause to self-reflect, learn, network, and renew your energy before 2019 begins. Held at the University for Peace’s idyllic campus a few kilometers from Ciudad Colon, the Centre is offering a three-day Positive Leadership workshop from December 6-8 (Thursday through Saturday).

The workshop will bring together a diverse group of participants, including local nationals as well as expats living in Costa Rica. It’s an intense experience, covering a range of topics from unpacking “happiness,” drawing from recent research in the field of positive psychology, to reflecting on how happiness relates to leadership, purpose, and awareness of our own strengths. The course looks at both self-leadership as well as leadership in the organizations we are part of.

The participants also reflect on “failures” and emerge with a new perspective on these setbacks that everyone experiences.

“We all experience self-doubt that holds us back from achieving our potential. Environments that allow us to feel comfortable being vulnerable, share one’s ‘failures’ and then reflect on what one learnt are invaluable!”, reflects Mohit Mukherjee, a Harvard Education Graduate who founded the UPEACE Centre for Executive Education 12 years ago.

In the words of Diego Lineiro, a recent participant from a multinational company in Costa Rica, “The workshop is not an investment, it’s a gift for your mind and your soul. This is not just another workshop, it’s the beginning of a journey. We were not a group, but a team in all aspects.”

So, as the year winds down, the big question is: “Are you ready to invest in yourself before the end of 2018?” If your answer is ‘yes’, the UPEACE Centre for Executive Education looks forward to having you join a group of motivated, fellow Positive Leaders from December 6 -8th .

Note: If timing does not work, the Centre will be holding the next Positive Leadership workshop at the end of February 2019.

To sign up, please e-mail the Centre’s Program Specialist, Esmeralda Bolaños at ebolanos@upeace.org. For more info, visit the workshop website at http://centre.upeace.org/workshops/positive-leadership/.
