The Thrive Global courses are aimed at helping professionals lower their stress levels, preventing burnout and enhancing their health, well-being and productivity, and Huffington said in a blog post that at least six more courses will be added by year-end.
The initial six courses are:
- Discovering Meditation and Sleep
- Learning How to Unplug and Recharge
- Setting Priorities and Letting Go
- Facing Challenges With Gratitude and Forgiveness
- Igniting Joy Through Presence and Wonder
- Understanding the Link Between Giving and Success
Business icons and guest trainers providing their insights include retired National Basketball Association legend Kobe Bryant, Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania Prof. Adam Grant, Warby Parker co-founder and co-CEO Dave Gilboa and Harvard University happiness expert Shawn Achor.
70 percent of U.S. employees—and 96 percent of senior leaders—say they feel burned out. The numbers are similar the world over. And we actually know how to stop it—by changing the way we work and live. But ending the global epidemic of burnout and creating a thriving workplace culture is about more than raising awareness of the connection between well-being and productivity. It requires moving from knowing what to do to actually doing it—that means learning how to incorporate new habits into our daily lives.
All of the courses use scientifically proven methods to decrease stress and burnout and improve your overall productivity, health, happiness and well-being. In each lesson, we tackle two steps—for a total of 12 steps (because we are all addicted to our current way of living and working)—with practical tips and tools.
The course also features tracking tools that will help you monitor your progress, achieve your goals, and thrive. And all of our steps and practices are based on the latest scientific findings.
