The Orange Frog Workshop

Following Devin Hughes’s keynote address, himself and the Orange Frog team will host a discussion for Convention attendees covering their training that brings THE HAPPINESS ADVANTAGE to life!

To support South Dakota educational leaders in their ability to improve school culture and provide a stronger foundation for SEL initiatives in the classroom, ASBSD has partnered with International Thought Leader Network to provide a virtual one-day preview of The Happiness Advantage I Orange Frog Workshop at the 2020 ASBSD-SASD Virtual Convention.

Register here for the 2020 ASBSD-SASD Virtual Convention on Thursday, August 6

Increasingly, the nation’s most forward-looking schools are engaged in creating positive cultures to enhance education. A positive, engaged brain improves performance, pride, and culture, helps retain our best teachers, and deepens student, family, and community relationships.

Additionally, our mindset matters in these times of uncertainty. Activating ways to increase our levels of optimism and adaptability, while reducing stress and anxiety, can help us best uncover new possibilities and generate positive outcomes in this current climate.

The Happiness Advantage I Orange Frog Workshop created by positive psychology expert and New York Times best-selling author Shawn Achor and his partners at International Thought Leader Network.

This experiential workshop brings to life the science-based principles from The Happiness Advantage-see below. Using a parable and metaphors, classroom-style experiences, and group activities, participants learn ways to find and sustain their own happiness. They also learn to positively influence others in their schools and communities.

The Orange Frog workshop is a full day workshop. It is highly interactive with many team-based breakout sessions. Unfortunately, this workshop is not suited for logging in and out. The workshop will be limited to the first 100 people registered.  At 10:40 a.m. the virtual classroom will be closed locked.

The Happiness Advantage I Orange Frog Workshop provides a springboard for people at the individual, team and organization levels showing them clearly how to infuse positive practices into their personal habits, school routines and the district’s culture.

Thousands of people across cultural, industry, and economic divides have applied these principles to raise their levels of optimism and create happiness in their lives, beginning with the belief that positive change is possible. It is proven that increases in happiness provide real-world advantages — personally, professionally, and academically, such as:

  • Increased resilience;
  • Skills for growing through adversity;
  • Better health, including reduced levels of stress and anxiety;
  • Deeper engagement and improved performance.
