In this episode, we discuss Steve Magness’s latest book, Do Hard Things: Why We Get Resilience Wrong and the Surprising Science of Real Toughness. We’ll share a brief overview of the book, give a couple of our biggest takeaways, and then share a few tips that we think will help you to better understand toughness and how you can apply that to your leadership and ultimately to doing hard things.
Recently, Joseph Valentine Dworak read the book “Strengths Based Parenting” by Dr. Mary Reckmeyer. It’s about how to apply the philosophy and methodology of StrengthsFinder to children. As a parent of two young boys, he was intrigued. Reckmeyer’s book is a worthwhile read for anyone interested in unlocking the uniqueness of their children and teaches valuable lessons on parenting in a strengths based way.
