I recently had a conversation with Michelle McQuaid about our work on Positive Systems Science. We consider questions like are we oversimplifying positive psychology? And what are some of the implications of the PSS perspective? Catch our chat here: http://ow.ly/sPzZ30aYYqS

I listened to this podcast while mowing my lawn the other day and it was such an "aha" moment that I killed the lawn mower. I'm excited for your work in this area. I attended the Positive Education Festival last year in Dallas looking for ideas about how I as a professor of educational leadership can help prepare future school leaders to vision, build, and support a systematic approach that enhances the well-being of students, teachers, leaders, and the community (I actually attended a few of your sessions). While the conference was amazing, I was a bit disappointed that nearly all the discussions and interventions focused on how teachers help individual students. My experience as a teacher, leader, and professor have confirmed that this approach only results in some haphazard pockets of short-term excellence. What are we doing to train teachers, school leaders, and district leaders to understand, analyze, and alter the system in ways that results in long and short-term gains in well-being? I'm teaching the ideas and intervention of positive psychology to my students with very little hope that it can be effectively sustained because the system doesn't support it. Thank you for your great work in this very important area. I will continue to follow your work.
