“PERMA™ Theory of Well-Being”

Originally posted in our May 2024 Top of Mind Newsletter.

For those familiar with ELI’s work, you have probably heard of Martin Seligman. Part of why we love his work is that his PERMA theory—Positive Emotion, Engagement, Relationships, Meaning, and Accomplishment—provides a powerful framework for entrepreneurial mindset education to reach new depths of impact. By integrating these elements, educators can cultivate resilience, motivation, and a sense of purpose in their learners.

This holistic approach not only enhances personal well-being but also empowers future entrepreneurs to thrive in their ventures, be they start-up initiatives or new career development. Embracing PERMA within our learning environments ensures that students are equipped with the mental tools needed for lasting success in and outside of business.
