Monica Worline

Chief Enlivening Officer, EnlivenWork, Inc.; Affiliate Faculty, Center for Positive Organizations | University of Michigan


Monica Worline, PhD, is passionate about helping people create workplaces that bring the best of ourselves alive, as opposed to those that (you recognize them!) deaden us a bit each day. That passion is the inspiration behind all the projects supported by EnlivenWork, a social innovation organization Monica co-founded. EnlivenWork has entered into an impact-enhancing partnership with the Center for Positive Organizations (CPO) to together deliver a technology-based version of the Center’s highly regarded Reflected Best Self ExerciseTM. Monica is a dynamic teacher and one of the leaders of the Magnify Immersion Program at Michigan Ross, a one-of-a-kind immersion program for undergraduates who learn the foundations of Positive Organizational Scholarship (POS) in an intensive format as they simultaneously partner with organizations that are seeking to put POS into practice to amplify their flourishing.

In addition to her work with CPO and Michigan Ross, Monica serves as a research scientist at the Center for Compassion and Altruism Research and Education at Stanford University. Monica co-authored the book Awakening Compassion at Work with Jane Dutton and, having studied compassion at work for over two decades, is a globally recognized expert in helping organizations understand and improve the social architecture that supports a compassionate work environment.
