Optimism matters. An optimistic disposition enables us—through everyday and extraordinary struggles—to look for the goodness in ourselves, in others, and in the world around us.

For professionals working with our most valuable resource, children, optimism is a critical tool and a pathway to healing. This inspiring, interactive conversation will help individuals discover the power of optimism to create safe, joyful, engaging environments where kids can grow, heal and learn.


Using research, humor and personal stories from the Playmakers’ 25+ years of work with kids and their caregivers worldwide, Steve will share how optimistic individuals can bring out the best in their students, colleagues and leaders.
