What You Will Take Away

Using simple formulas, he provides concrete methods for empowering individuals, families and organizations. Attendees will take away tools to address the broad spectrum of human emotions that drive us all. The "Anxiety Equation" (anxiety = uncertainty x powerlessness) is a representative example.
