Optimism Coaching

Speaker: Jessica J. Lockhart


All human beings are born optimists and hopeful. That optimism is the driving force to guide us in our progress. Jessica teaches the basics of optimism and how to recover and relearn it to never again lack the energy or the drive needed to reach goals and thrive.

Different scientific studies have proven for years now that optimists reach more goals, live longer and healthier lives and contribute more to their families and society in general.

Optimism Coaching was created by humanologist Jessica J. Lockhart to help human beings recover their energy, their motivation and their push.


During this workshop participants will experience Optimism Coaching:  practical, immediate and longer-term tools to recover optimism, motivation and energy.


The method offers tools especially focused on:

    • Defining and enhancing personal MOTIVATION

    • Balancing and reinforcing MOTIVATION as individuals and in groups

    • Assessing and promoting OPTIMISM

    • Preventing and healing BURNOUT

    • Improving MOODS


Because all human beings are born optimists. 

Discover how to recover your energy and drive.
