Brought to you by the WOHASU® Foundation

Brazilian-born and Miami-made, Romero Britto is an international artist who uses vibrant, bold, and colorful patterns to reflect his optimistic view of the world. Britto, founder of the Happy Art Movement, has created a visual language of love, hope, and happiness inspiring millions worldwide. He generously created the artwork for the first World Happiness Summit, where he shared his passion and purpose with the WOHASU Community.

Britto uses vibrant, iconic imagery and fun patterns to reflect his optimism. Self-taught at an early age, he painted on scraps of paper, cardboard or any medium he could find before coming into his own and traveling to Paris where he was introduced to the works of Matisse and Picasso. His appreciation of these masters influenced him to create an iconic style that The New York Times described, “exudes warmth, optimism and love.”

Be part of The Happy Art Movement and help share happiness, love, optimism, and hope right now with the people and places that need it most. Romero Britto will join us on the WOHASU Community platform to share about the power of art as he paints live at his studio.

Resiliency through Needs Satisfaction in the Era of Coronavirus

Bookmark

Thursday, March 26 – 12 P.M. – 1 P.M. ET

Needs is the first step to “Dealing with Coronavirus: Cultivating Resilience”, because all our behaviors are geared toward the satisfaction of one or more needs. Do you know what are the needs that you are expecting to be met at home, with your family, at work and with your friends? Do you know to what degree you are currently meeting the needs of those around you? A successful and happy person is capable of finding a sustainable way to meet her needs and is also mindful and actively involved in helping others meet theirs. To increase resiliency, it is critical to formulate a need-satisfaction plan and monitor its progress consistently. As individuals our collective needs are met, the perception of life and work changes from “getting by” or “just a job” to a calling. The final goal of this workout is self-realization or the highest potential an individual can achieve. We will end the session with a Q&A.

The virtual environment for employees and teams is transforming the way people are currently working. There are higher levels of stress, uncertainty, and anxiety for the entire population. Leaders who have always led teams in person now need to pivot and lead from a distance. The number one predictor of happiness is human connection and this is imperative as everyone is working from their homes. Happy employees make their customers happy & when customers are happy, the company is successful. In a 2015 Happiness & Productivity study from The University of Warwick, research demonstrated that happy employees are 10%-12% more productive than unhappy employees. Harvard’s Shawn Achor writes, “People who cultivate a positive mind-set perform better in the face of challenge. This is the “happiness advantage”—every business outcome shows improvement when the brain is positive.”

This webinar is for leaders, teams and employees of organizations who are interested in tangible ways to increase happiness while working virtually. Attendees will walk away with a toolkit that they can implement immediately. Attendees will learn and practice evidence-based behaviors and exercises around both results and relationships. The webinar will allow for group interaction and questions. The webinar will be led by Tia Graham, Founder of Arrive At Happy. Graham partners with organizations to teach happiness and transform cultures through workshops, retreats, keynote talks and culture work. She has a Certificate in Happiness Studies & a Certificate in Facilitating Happiness from Harvard’s Tal Ben-Shahar and is a Chief Happiness Officer Certificate. Tia is also a Certified coach with the International Coaching Federation.
