We had a great time at the Pittsburgh Opera on Monday night officially launching The Resilience Advantage. Friends, clients and colleagues all gathered in the former home of George Westinghouse’s Railroad Air Break Company building resilience over great food and wonderful conversation. The highlight of the evening was a performance by one of Pittsburgh leading improv groups, Sheila’s Wing and A Prayer Players. Their performances have been seen all around Pittsburgh, the US, and in Europe where they “Perform the Book.” In this improvisational form I read several portions of my book to which they responded through dance, story telling or song. All in attendance enjoyed their portrayal of daily challenges from hip replacements to workplace conundrums. Using their own wisdom and resilience strategies the “Players” showed us again why art is such a powerful tool for understanding and overcoming life’s travails.
