Jo Murray is a facilitator and change consultant with a Masters in Positive Psychology from Melbourne University. Jo is specifically interested in how leaders in organizations can use the concept of psychological capital to improve the engagement and wellbeing of their employees.
While your organization may measure and track your economic, human or even social capital, have you ever considered the psychological capital? Psychological capital is about understanding what individuals uniquely bring to their role and the organization to give it life and vitality, and their potential to be great and perform at extraordinary levels. By providing meaningful and productive feedback to your staff based on the components of psychological capital - hope, self-efficacy, resilience, optimism - you can unlock the performance potential of your team.
