4:58 mins Karen talks about the difference between positivity and optimism and that blind optimism is dangerous and is definitely not what positive psychology is about.


10:40 mins Karen talks about positive leadership skills and how this means you choose your response, evaluating the situation and choosing the best plan of action rather than ignoring challenges and any negativity which quickly leads your team to lose faith and trust in you.


18:00 mins Davina guides you through a quick meditation technique to bring presence to the body by simply sensing and feeling into the hands.
