MAPP, Masters in Applied Positive Psychology 

Rapidly becoming one of psychology’s most transformative fields, positive psychology is the scientific study of the strengths that enable humans and organizations to flourish. Positive psychology differs from historical psychological approaches because of its unique emphasis on the empirical study of human flourishing. While the study of psychology has traditionally focused on improving the human condition by identifying and relieving what is negative in life, positive psychology complements this approach with a focus on strengthening what is positive.

The Masters of Applied Positive Psychology (MAPP) program at the University of Pennsylvania was the first in the world to offer a degree in this rigorous field of study. Dr. Martin Seligman, founder of the discipline of positive psychology, created the MAPP program to educate and train students at the cutting edge of the field.

Dare to Lead™

Based on the research of Dr. Brené Brown, Dare to Lead™ is an empirically based courage-building program designed to engage leaders in real conversations about being brave and building courageous cultures. The most significant finding from Dr. Brown’s latest research is that courage is a collection of four skill sets that are teachable, observable, and measurable.

Certified Dare to Lead™ Facilitators (CDTLFs) are trained on how to teach the skills, practices, and tools that underpin the four skill sets of courage: Rumbling with Vulnerability, Living into Our Values, Braving Trust, and Learning to Rise. These independent facilitators offer workshops, trainings, and coaching to bring the Dare to Lead courage-building process into your organization.
