“Eliciting the positive emotional attractor” led by Kevin Callahan Thursday at 9 in the lounge (Kevin, Aino, Therese, Markus, Ryan, Enrico, Jenny, George, Tom, Veit)
The session was based on the work of Richard Boyatzis. See also https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fpsyg.2015.00670/full.
After a short introduction to the work, Kevin asked aspirational questions like “Imagine tomorrow is everything you could dream of”, “What if you got everything you want from working with me”, “Imagine you have achieved everything you wanted in this life”, “If you had a magic wand what would you have changed”
He also talked about Chris Avery's Responsibility Model.
And the two neural networks: Task positive, which is logical problem solving, and which is also mutually exclusive with: Default mode, which is about creativity, relationship, and positive emotions.
