K-12 AP/Dean/Director Breakaway

St. Clair ROE
Join your fellow AP's, Deans, Directors or Specialists in the second breakaway of the 2023-2024 school year. Dr. Tim Bono of Washington University will facilitate 2 mini sessions (Science of Happiness & Building Trust).  The first session will review some of his favorite studies from his popular course on the Science of Happiness and outline simple research-based strategies we can all incorporate into our lives to become just a little happier every day. In particular, we’ll dispel some of the myths around the pursuit of happiness and delve into the behaviors and mindsets that are capable of bringing sustainable gains in our day-to-day well-being. What the happiest and most successful organizations all have in common boils down to one single variable: Trust. When we trust those around us, we are positioned to optimize our productivity and well-being—both as individuals and as teams over all. Building trust, of course, requires thinking not only of what is in the best interest of an individual staff member or individual department, but more broadly about what is good for the larger organization, school, or district. This highly interactive session pairs up all participants in an activity demonstrating that cooperation (even when it causes initial inconvenience or extra work) can end up benefiting everyone (including the individual staff/department) in the long run.   Attendees will have time afterwards to collaborate, problem solve, network and share resources as related to their positions. Registration closes 4-5 days prior to the event unless tickets are sold out.
