In times of crisis, like the coronavirus and COVID-19 pandemic, we can still find ways to thrive by using positive practices. When many of us feel challenged enough just getting through the day, thriving simply means finding ways to meet those challenges — large or small — with creativity, resourcefulness, and agility. Join this Teach-Out to learn about practices that allow people and organizations to thrive, even during trying times.

We invite you to join us in the Thrive in Trying Times Teach-Out, a free learning experience and global conversation to consider how positive practices might help you navigate this time of stress. You will learn with experts from the Center for Positive Organization at the University of Michigan Stephen M. Ross School of Business about how you can create these conditions using specific, evidence-based practices from the field of Positive Organizational Scholarship. Throughout the TeachOut, experts will share concrete actions you can take, both as an individual and as family, an organization, and community. This Teach-Out was created in partnership with the University of Michigan Center for Academic Innovation.

In this Teach-Out you will learn:

  • Explain what the concept of thriving means to you during this time.
  • Apply research-backed practices that help you navigate uncertainty and stress.
  • Explore basic positive organizing concepts such as resilience, gratitude, reframing and social connection.
  • Contribute your own experiences and creative solutions and learn from others.

This Teach-Out runs from now until May 25, 2020, includes approximately 4 hours of content, and is accessible via Michigan Online on learning platforms Cousera and FutureLearn.
