MAAEYC Leadership Conference

featuring keynote speakers: Steven Gross & Anthony Toombs from The Life is Good Playmaker

Optimism is powerful.
When human beings grow their capacity to see and
focus on the goodness in themselves, others, and the
world, their social, emotional and cognitive superpowers emerge.

Optimism, however, can be fragile. Chronic stress, fear
and overwhelming adversity can weaken and destroy
our capacity for optimism. This inspiring presentation
helps individuals discover the healing power of
optimism to create safe, joyful, & engaging

environments where EVERYONE- children and staff alike-
can heal, learn and grow.

Using research, humor and personal stories from Steve
& the Playmakers’ 30+ years of work with kids and the
people who commit their careers to helping them, Steve
shares how optimistic individuals can bring out the best
in children, themselves, and their colleagues.
