The Resilience Advantage Digital Solution

I’m completing beta testing of my new digital software program based on my award-winning book, The Resilience Advantage. The program uses a cloud-based technology to provide micro-learning experiences (90-120 seconds) that are seamlessly delivered to your mobile device. I’ve partnered with Thrive Learning Systems, a local Pittsburgh tech company who’ve developed the technology that uses cognitive science, feedback loops, and a natural conversational tone (along with some fun GIFs) to make each interaction informative and action oriented. We’ve developed 2...

Go Ahead: Be Dumb

No one wants to look stupid, but sometimes it’s okay to be stupid. I’m always surprised about how dumb I was 2 weeks ago and my recognizing that helps me forgive myself and take a risk on something else that I may not know how to do. The practice of reaching beyond what you know  what to do is the best way  to learn how to do it
