Through the lens of Devin’s life, we can all take steps toward harmony with ourselves and our neighbors.

    Orange Frog Workshop: Leading Positive Performance (Positive Psychology)
    Orange Frog Workshop: Leading Positive Performance™ is an on-site experiential workshop that teaches the science of sustainable peak performance. The research is clear. Positive environments are performance enhancers. They are characterized by higher productivity, less turnover and more resilient cultures. Applying the latest research-based techniques from the field of positive psychology, individuals learn the practices of resilient leaders; they become more adaptable and develop a capacity to “see” more opportunities, leading to better results.

    Based on the works of Shawn Achor, author of The Happiness Advantage: The Seven Principles of Positive Psychology That Fuel Success and Performance at Work and taught in Harvard’s famed happiness course and to companies worldwide, Leading Positive Performance™ provides a sustainable approach to enhancing productivity at the individual, team and organization level.
