Why Positive Acorn?
Dr. Robert Biswas-Diener is a leading authority on positive psychology coaching and widely recognized as a major pioneering voice in this field. Robert occupies a unique position in the world of positive psychology as he is both a published researcher and a practicing ICF certified coach.
Robert combines his intervention acumen and scientific knowledge to bring you a fresh approach to coaching via Positive Acorn. While others offer rudimentary positive psychology interventions Positive Acorn takes pride in creating scientifically informed practices that are nuanced and naturalistic. Instead of focusing on simplistic tools such as keeping a gratitude diary Positive Acorn offers interventions related to courage, curiosity, hope and many other techniques not offered elsewhere.
Positive Acorn was born from a simple desire: to help aspiring and seasoned coaches use practical skills related to positive psychology.
Positive Acorn is made up of seasoned professionals who are naturally creative, curious, and hungry for the newest ideas and ways of doing things. We are absolutely fascinated by the latest research in psychology and eager to work out how to apply it to coaching practices.
Keep up with the latest in positive psychology.
