Living with Joy: The Science and Skill of Happiness

September 22, 2013 to September 25, 2013

What does it mean to live a truly joyful life? How do we find and embrace happiness during our personal and professional journeys and as we age? Doug Smith, MBA, who is the author of a forthcoming book on the subject, a university professor and former CEO of two major national corporations, will lead an exploration of positive psychology. This new field of science offers intriguing ways to consider these questions, and reveals much about what it really means to be happy, why happiness is so important to successful living, and the roles played by genetics, circumstances and individual choices. You’ll learn about a set of 13 skills that can help you find peace about the past, confidence in the future and joy and exuberance in the present – the skills of happiness.

Doug will also give a special presentation for this event: Abundant Leadership. Learn how essential elements of the happiness equation can be applied to organizational leadership for practical results.
