The Center for Continuing Education (CCE) and KFAS Co-organize a PRL Positive Thinking workshop at AUK

Kuwait Foundation for the Advancement of Sciences (KFAS) organized a "Positive Thinking" workshop in collaboration with the American University of Kuwait- Center for Continuing Education, for KFAS employees and its centers at KFAS.

The workshops were conducted by Dr. Hesham Al-Awadi, Associate Professor of History at AUK, and covered the theme of "positive thinking" at the workplace. The 100 participants, from KFAS and its centers such as The Scientific Center, Dasman Diabetes Institute, Sabah Al-Ahmed Center for Giftedness & Creativity and Jaber Al-Ahmad Center for Nuclear Medicine, were evaluated and assessed their general outlook and attitude, learned how to break bad habits, and were introduced to methods of maintaining a positive outlook at the workplace.

During the workshop, the attendees participated in several exercises that helped them learn how to develop positive thinking skills. These included acknowledging one's successes, even if partial or non-material, identifying and developing personal strengths rather than weaknesses, and dedicating more time and effort in one's circle of control, rather than focusing on a circle of worries and concerns.
