CommercialWellbeing: The bigger picture for happiness in the workplace

The attention on workplace happiness has grown in recentyears, especially in the GCC region. But, what does it mean to be"happy" at work? Is it just about more pizza parties, or is itsomething bigger, more meaningful, and which has the ability to transformpeople's lives? Dr. Louise Lambert, a regional positive psychology researcherand practitioner, argues the answer to that question is yes. In this talk, sheexplores the "Commercial Wellbeing" model recently put forward andfrom which it is possible to boost employee, customer, and community wellbeing.She uses case studies to bring theory alive and offers several small, practicalactivities for participants to do and experience. Dr. Louise advocates for thesimple over the complex, the small over the big, and the need to take a morepurposeful approach to work as it is more than a paycheck. Work is where peoplego to be great every day; it is also a vehicle through which organizations canmake a positive contribution to the world.



Dr. Louise Lambert, PhD., is a Registered Psychologist(#2659, College of Alberta Psychologists, Canada) with 20 years’ experience incounselling centres, mental health, not-for-profit organizations, highereducation and research, and primary healthcare organizations. She has lived inthe United Arab Emirates for 10 years and is a positive psychology researcherand consultant, as well as clinical supervisor with the College of AlbertaPsychologists, Canada. Regionally, she has developed a number of evidence-basedpositive psychology intervention programs, which were empirically validated inacademic journals and which continue to be used in the UAE, Kuwait, and SaudiArabia (Lambert, Budhraja, Mullan, & Gupta, 2018; Lambert, Passmore, &Joshanloo, 2019; Lambert, Passmore, Scull, Al Sabah, & Hussain, 2019).

Being a Chief Energy Officer
#Thuraya Hall

Being a Chief Energy Officer

Humanperformance is ultimately a function of human energy, reflected in our ‘stateof heart’. When our hearts are in more open states, we naturally think,decide, collaborate, learn and adapt more effectively. Human energy goes straight to the bottom line.

As a “Chief Energy Officer” ourguiding question becomes: “How else could I nurture human energy, transformnegative energy, and then direct that human energy towards a shared purpose?”In Boris’ experience this question is at the very heart of leadership. And itis less a question to find a definite answer to, yet rather one to be guidedby – every day, one conversation at a time. It is a stance. And itinspired his book: “Chief Energy Officer – Universal Principles to nurture aSpirit of Performance”.

Experiencingthis interactive session, will allow you to reconnect with some of thoseuniversal principles that can help us be at our best more often and lead moreconsciously with a “Chief Energy Officer” mindset – at work, at home or in ourcommunity. The session is an opportunity to reflect on some elements of humanenergy that represent the starting point for senior teams embarking on ajourney of transformation.
