The session is designed to give participants new strategies that help answer the question ‘Who is the best candidate for the job?’ By blending the science of Positive Psychology with the latest neuroscientific research, Hart gives a perspective that will help you challenge assumptions typically made during the hiring process. Participants gain awareness of when intuition helps—and when it gets in the way. Put into practice, Hart’s techniques help build intuition.

“Globalization and the Internet have changed everything,” says Hart. “Entrepreneurs have a broader pool of talent to choose from. Building an effective team is more important than ever before.”

“Positive diversity is an inspirational approach to improving interpersonal relationships on all levels,” says Marcia Moran, co-founder of Positive Business DC. “It provides a lens that enables people to peel back biases and preconceived notions about others. It’s ‘normal’ for humans to make our initial assessment of someone within a matter of seconds. Subconsciously our biases play right into those assessments and often lead us to false conclusions.”

“Ultimately, grouping people into categories seems like the easy way to deal with others. Instead, those groups really complicate organizational behavior and get in the way of building authentic relationships. Positive diversity gives people a far more engaging way to interact with one another to get past superficial differences and not only build upon, but value and celebrate, individual strengths,” concludes Moran.
