Sandeep Gautam's insight:

Hi Folks,

Pls consider following my new scoop.it topic 'Flourish Mentoring' as I will be curating workplace and leadership related articles under that topic from now on. I'll be using the 'positive psychology' topic more for basic research in positive psychology and applications to say school settings, but all  applications to workspace settings will now be covered under 'Flourish Mentoring'.  

 

thanks,

Sandeep Gautam
