Positive Education Training

  Professional Wellbeing Education

Wellbeing and human education for the world of tomorrow
Positive Education provides the tools.

Positive Education strengthens well-being- and human development to build positive relationships with ourselves, with others and with the world we live in.

- Elke Paul

3 Reasons Why

  1. Get smart on wellbeing to lower mental health risks 

  2. Strengthen character and human qualities to prepare for a digital tomorrow

  3. Train skills for respectful engagement with others and our planet

A call for professional wellbeing &
human value education

We all want to adapt, succeed and flourish in a rapidly changing world.  The increasing mental health crisis of young people and chronically stressed adults indicate that this objective is far from being reached. The education of tomorrow must include professional wellbeing and character education for children and adults to help turn this tide. 

Positive Education is the science based application of wellbeing & Positive Psychology studies, a toolbox for human flourishing. It encourages growth, accomplishment, contribution, collaboration, appreciation, care, compassion, empathy, engagement, working with adversity, managing change, reflection and balance. These attributes create a strong human foundation and life skills necessary to enhance individual and collective thriving. 


Supporting open minded schools and innovative organisations to promote flourishing is my passion and motivation. This is what I stand for!

     Dr. Elke Paul 

Which levers need to be pulled to make us and our communities happier and hopeful? This question followed me through various academic degrees, countries, career moves and spiritual quests. Most insights however I gathered from the people I met along the way: Flourishing is a competence that can be acquired.  It has little to do with money or background, but with human skills like positive relationships, compassion, engagement and purpose. Wellbeing & human skills are crucial in our times. Flourishing helps us brighten our outlook, our relationships, and the way we relate, learn and work.

Studying it, working on it and sharing wellbeing inspires me!

To see how Elke helped vulnerable, challenged young people gain mental strength and confidence was mind blowing. I believe her curriculum could be a life changer for these kids.

Die Energie und ihre positive Ausstrahlung beim Vortrag hat mich komplett eingenommen. Es war spürbar, dass Sie für das Thema brennen und es mit großer Leidenschaft vertreten. Es war eine Fülle an hochinteressanten Informationen, gespickt mit unterhaltsamen Unterbrechungen und dem aktiven Einbezug der Zuhörer.
