Positivity Strategist injects a good dose of optimism and possibility into your life. It seeks to marry the ideal with the practical. Conversations with thought leaders and everyday people shine the light on what works and amplifies those every day, micro-moments of positivity, irrespective of what else is going on. You’ll be energized by lots of practical tips, inspiring you to live a truly satisfying and meaningful life. Podcast host is Robyn Stratton-Berkessel, TEDx speaker, author, workshop designer and facilitator. Her specialty is Appreciative Inquiry and other strength-based, positive methodologies that ignite transformational experiences. The foundational practice is to uncover the stories of success (or failure) that lead to personal empowerment which then sets us free to be at our best. When we can do this, we boost our general health and well-being. We strengthen our resiliency, creativity, decision-making, productivity and more. We develop a deeper understanding and appreciation for ourselves, others and the world around us, thereby growing professionally and personally.
