This 10-module program will bring to life the wisdom and key lessons from ten great books in the fields of psychology, neuroscience, leadership, and coaching. Each session will focus on a different book, you do not have to read the book in advance of the session.

Inspired by the popular app, Blinkist, we will start each class with a high-level summary of the key highlights, ideas, and models from the book.  We will then bring it to life with activities, discussion, and coaching so you can apply the ideas in your business, your organization, and your life.

What You Will Learn

How to apply ideas, theories, and frameworks from great thinkers into your coaching practice, leadership style, and organizations.

  • How we make judgments and why we are prone to judgment errors
  • What the brain evolved for
