TASBO + Orange Frog

It has long been believed that success drives happiness, but it turns out it's the other way around. When we embrace a positive mindset, our brains are more engaged, creative, motivated, energetic, resilient, and productive.

Designed for individuals, leaders at any level, and teams the key objectives of the Orange Frog workshop include:

  • Begin a personal transformation towards a more positive mindset and productive work life.
  • Learn to identify and amplify critical social scripts and connect positive engagement to positive business results.
  • Make happiness an integral part of the work environment by embedding specific practices into existing routines.
  • Leave with the mindset and skill set to create positive change in yourself and others.
