Free Mason Motivates Event for Furloughed Federal Employees and Contractors

To honor the dedication and selfless work of our federal workers, our center and Mason's Executive and Professional Education will present a morning of free positive leadership and well-being training to furloughed federal employees and contractors. This interactive training, led by our Positive Leadership faculty member Steve Gladis, Ph.D., will take place at Founders Hall on Mason's Arlington campus, Friday, January 18, from 9:30 a.m. to 11 a.m. It will be followed by an optional Mindfulness Yoga session with Alyssa Hadley from 11 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. Register here.

Positive Leadership focuses on helping leaders develop a more positive mindset to achieve personal and organizational goals. A positive leader is more self-confident, optimistic, and resilient. This positivity results in a more creative, energetic, and productive workforce. There’s plenty of evidence that positive leaders make a big difference in government agencies, corporations, and other community organizations. Positive leaders create an atmosphere that produces lower turnover, higher productivity, greater satisfaction, and a host of desirable bottom-line outcomes.

Gladis, a Senior Scholar at our center, is a writer, speaker, researcher, and executive coach. He teaches leadership development courses based on his more than 20 popular books and numerous articles about leadership. A former F.B.I. special agent and U.S. Marine Corps officer, he also coaches CEOs, executives, and their teams.
