#009 - PERMA-V: How to Flourish in Work and Life

Published on: 12th October, 2020

Today, we discuss what it takes to flourish in work and life, drawing upon the vast research and practice from the world of Positive Psychology. Positive Psychology focuses on the aspects of life that make it worth living and can help us increase our individual wellbeing, as well as the wellbeing of any organization or society in general.

In his book Flourish, Martin Seligman discusses his theory of Well-Being and the five elements of Well-Being that make up the PERMA framework. 

  • P – Positive Emotion
  • E – Engagement
  • R – Relationships
  • M – Meaning
  • A – Accomplishments

V – for Vitality is often added to this model to cover the fact that if you're physically or mentally sick or ill, it's hard to flourish.

If you are interested in the concept of Positive Psychology and want to learn more about how you can flourish, be sure to check out the following resources:
