What makes you most optimistic about the future of your industry?

The cultural divide is widening. Personal emotional and intellectual conflicts around politics, money, and wealth are intensifying. Sounds pretty pessimistic! However, where there is emotional intensity, there is an opportunity for people who want to live a joyful life in rapport with their values, beliefs, and behaviors. The coaching and therapy industry can now provide a clear step-by-step path based on how our brain actually works. Using simulations, exercises, private coaching, and group support, personal peace is possible. Our industry has moved from never-ending psychoanalysis to methods that invite new behaviors that serve us better.
