Get Unstuck, Embrace Change, and Thrive in Work and Life

EMOTIONAL AGILITY helps us to navigate life’s twists and turns with self-acceptance, clear-sightedness, and an open mind. This process isn’t about ignoring difficult emotions and thoughts. It’s about holding those emotions and thoughts loosely, facing them with courage and compassion, and moving beyond them to ignite change in your life.

Written with authority, wit, and empathy, EMOTIONAL AGILITY serves as a roadmap for real behavioral change.
