I am a German human resources executive and keynote speaker. Harvard Business Manager, the German edition of the Harvard Business Review, recently described me as „one of the leading experts and keynote speakers on Positive Psychology in Germany”.
Mappalicious started out as my diary while taking part in the 2013/14 MAPP (Master of Applied Positive Psychology) program at University of Pennsylvania. In August 2014, I graduated – yet I decided to go on with this page and to develop it into a more general resource on all things Positive Psychology.
