Positive Psychological Capital: Recognizing and Developing the HERO Within for Improved Performance and Well–Being
with Dr. Fred Luthans

Wednesday, January 23, 2019, 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m., Room 202, College of Business Howard L. Hawks Hall, Lincoln, Nebraska

Everyone agrees with the importance of being positive at work and in their life. However, most also feel such positivity is too “fuzzy” and ill-defined to realistically meet today’s complex challenges. Drawing from the science of positive psychology, Distinguished Professor Emeritus Fred Luthans has founded what he termed Psychological Capital, or simply PsyCap, consisting of Hope, Efficacy, Resilience and Optimism, or the HERO within. He will provide an evidence-based understanding of how to develop PsyCap to make yourself a more effective positive leader of others with enhanced well-being.

Talent Acquisition: Hiring for Strengths and Cultural Fit
with Marijane Hancock

Wednesday, January 30, 2019, 11:30 a.m.-1 p.m., Room 202, College of Business Howard L. Hawks Hall, Lincoln, Nebraska

Leading executives say a good cultural fit is essential when hiring new employees. Gallup research shows employees who work within their “Strengths Zone” not only look forward to going to work but they also work faster, have more positive, creative and innovative moments, treat customers better, and achieve more daily with accuracy. The challenge in talent acquisition is to make sure that potential employees match your culture and their Strengths match the position. Dr. Marijane Hancock, associate professor of practice in management and Gallup Certified Strengths Coach, will discuss interviewing and assessing job candidates for cultural and job fit.
