5th EAWOP WorkLab - Practitioner Skills Workshop

5th EAWOP WorkLab - Practitioner Skills Workshop

Team effectiveness and well-being

10th-12th November, 2016, Athens, Greece

WorkLab Programme

EAWOP would like to invite European practitioners working in the field of Work and Organizational Psychology (WOP) to join the 5th EAWOP Practitioner Skills WorkLab to be held 10-12 November, 2016 in Athens. This year, we have an exciting workshop programme focusing on developing team effectiveness and well-being in the workplace. Delegates will be introduced to methods including stimulating job crafting and defining team productivity measures (using the ProMES methodology) to maximise team motivation.

We are proud to announce our academic expert is Professor Dr. Evangelia Demerouti who is one of the currently most influential scientists in both stress and job crafting research. Our team development and motivation expert is practitioner speaker Dr. Colin Roth.

The workshop format will be similar to previous years; on Thursday evening we will set the stage for the workshop, by meeting the speakers at dinner. This will be followed by one and a half days with our academic and practitioner experts. Additionally, we will have a number of dedicated interactive sessions where experienced practitioners will facilitate the application of knowledge, tools and techniques to delegates’ challenges of motivation, job crafting, teamworking and well-being in the workplace.

We will be enjoying the view over the Acropolis during our workshop in a smart residential area in Athens, Greece. Our hotel for the WorkLab will be the Hotel Divani Acropolis
