5TH WELLBEING AND HAPPINESS SUMMIT

Develop strength in times of change

Positive Education

For second year, the International Summit on the Science of Happiness includes a full day program on Education and Parenting strategies based on Positive Education. Parents and educators will find tools to successfully navigate the socioemotional development of children and youth on a changing world.

It has been proved by empirical research that children that participate in projects that increase their wellbeing and happiness levels, also improve in academic performance. Educators will find at the Summit strategies to motivate and have happy classrooms where children will thrive.

Parents that focus on the positive aspects of their children and use a strengths based approach feel more secure as parents, develop the full potential of their children and help in the formation of mentally strong adults.

 

IMMERSION WORKSHOPS

These are a 180 minutes workshops focus on positive education given by University Tecmilenio experts in positive psychology. Limited availability, book as soon as possible.

 

Positive Organizations

Most people think that just by focusing on improving productivity, sales and reducing turn over results will come.

A positive leader focuses on the strengths of the team members, and developing each person´s best self. This translates to higher job satisfaction, wellbeing and engagement. These factors then transform in increased productivity and sustainable growth over time.

The world today is constantly changing, economic conditions, political issues and the needs of people are challenging; healthy and resilient organizations not just survive on this context they thrive in an uncertain world and achieve extraordinary results.

 

IN THE FRAMEWORK OF THE 15TH ANNIVERSARY OF THE TECMILENIO UNIVERSITY WE'RE CELEBRATING OUR V ANNIVERSARY: HAPPINESS THROUGH CULTURE.

In an alliance with the International Santa Lucia Festival we will have several talks about wellbeing and happiness presented in public spaces.
