Fostering a Joyful Work Environment

Thursday, April 2, 2020, 11:30 AM to 01:30 PM

Do you want your workdays to be filled with joy?  Who doesn’t?  Do you want to manage or belong to a cohesive, energized, motivated, positive and successful team?  Of course you do! 

Sadly, all too often, our workplaces don’t measure up to this ideal.  A recent article in the Chronicle of Philanthropy found that fundraisers complain they “don’t get enough support, they’re given unrealistic goals, they lack resources, and more.” 

Join us at “Fostering a Joyful Work Environment” to learn how to bring more happiness – and success – to your team.

Speaker Peggy Burns has been a “joy ambassador” for more than a decade, and has helped launch the #MOREJOY initiative at Harvard University, which states, “We believe in a community of connected employees.  We strive to create a workplace that joyfully inspires participation, inclusion, safety, curiosity, innovation and a sense of purpose and belonging. We aim to make Harvard a place where WE ALL will experience personal and professional growth and unparalleled job satisfaction.”

This session will feature significant audience participation and will provide you with useful tools and lessons to bring more joy to your workplace.  Join us on April 2 for a joyful professional development experience!
