Unlocking the mysteries of motivation

Many of us are counting down the hours to winter break, and I’m sure many of us will use the downtime to think about our goals for the new year and the vision for our life in 2016. I’m excited to share with you a guest post I wrote for UT’s Human Dimensions of Organizations blog In the Loop. In “Unlocking the mysteries of motivation,” I talk about how the latest UT HDO seminar helped me get unstuck in my creative life.

I hope you enjoy reading it and that you have a wonderful holiday season. Thank you for reading my blog!

Strengths, flow, effective thinking, and the pursuit of happiness

I recently attended my second professional seminar in the University of Texas at Austin’s new program Human Dimensions of Organizations.  The seminar, titled Flourishing in the Workplace, took place on April 25 and was the second seminar in the Smarter Thinking certification series.  I blogged about the first seminar late last year and am excited to have been invited back by UT to guest blog about my experience in this latest seminar.

How I became a better presenter, thinker, and problem solver

In my last post, I described how I learned about UT Austin’s new program Human Dimensions of Organizations and why I was investing my personal time and money in the professional seminar series.  I attended the first seminar, Maximizing Mental Agility, on November 13 and have been applying the insights ever since.

Lewis Miller, HDO’s program marketing coordinator invited me to guest blog about my experience with this first seminar in the Smarter Thinking series certificate, and I wanted to share that post with you.  Please visit HDO’s blog In the Loop to read my guest post, and feel free to comment there or here at Where’s my Paintbrush.
