Like any toolbox, we will gather new tools over time with new videos being added on a regular basis.
We are creating these videos so that you can access emotional resilience training on your own time, in your own space. Feel free to share these videos with your partner, kids, and others in your personal and professional circles that might want to learn these skills along with you.
Increasing your psychological flexibility and resilience will allow you to be more creative and effective with less stress and more satisfaction. It will also allow you to be your best, value-guided self more often.
