Pavelka partnered with Mercer on their Global Benefits Forum in order to bring some interactive and actionable wellbeing to life.
The interactive session was based on on the science of power posing. It was fast, light hearted and designed to lift the spirits of the attendees between keynotes and break-out sessions.
We introduced the concept and context with some examples, before having the audience vote on which scientific claims about the benefits of the practice might have been true or false. Giving everyone an opportunity to test their knowledge was a great way to make it fun and engaging.
After separating the facts from the fiction we then led the audience in practicing two “high power” poses to finish, giving them some takeaways to implement in future. It was a nice example of how an impactful dose of wellbeing can bring moments of both joy and connection, at any time or place.
