If you have been following the news recently, you have likely observed major societal problems. Can a TV sitcom help us learn ways to create positive change? NBC’s “The Good Place” is a show in which humans are scored on how ethical they are, in order to determine their place in the afterlife. This session will introduce participants to the 5A’s of positive change using examples and video clips from “The Good Place.”

Are you addressing all 5A’s of positive change? Some of us help students, faculty and/or staff to clearly identify important issues, increasing AWARENESS; some focus on the commitment to make the world a better place, highlighting ASPIRATION; some introduce critical decision-making principles, emphasizing ANALYSIS; others concentrate on the importance of follow-through, prioritizing ACTION; and some provide opportunities for reflection and revision, advocating ADAPTATION. How many of us are doing all five effectively? Attend this session to better understand the 5A’s of positive change and how they can re-focus your work.
