Engagement, Thriving, and Well-Being in Organizations

Students identify the factors and conditions that are necessary to build and sustain engagement. The topics of applying strengths, making a contribution, professional development, autonomy and problem solving, recognition, and meaning and purpose in one’s work are explored.
