The number one wish of parents worldwide is for their children to be happy. What is it that makes some schools happier than others? What does the science of happiness teach us about leading schools?

Participants will leave with new ideas they can use tomorrow to improve their own levels of happiness in their personal and professional lives. Come as strangers, leave as friends.
