In London last week, shortly after the tennis at Wimbledon 2011 had just come to an end, Dr. Martin Seligman used a timely analogy. He announced that the UK was now on ‘centre court’ towards creating a positive human future and at a possible inflection point for positive psychology.
Over three hundred delegates convened on Friday April 8th for the Leading to Well-Being Conference held at George Mason University. The conference brought together scholars and practitioners to focus on the intersection of positive psychology and leadership. One of the conference organizers, Nance Lucas, explained, “We are committed to raising people’s awareness around the science of well-being and positive psychology and helping people apply this in their lives personally, organizationally, and in their communities.”
