Our intentionally universal message encourages people all around the world to apply our tools in resilience to see obstacles as opportunities for growth and learning instead of roadblocks. We all face challenges. How we address our challenges determines our success. The Nametags Chat Podcast looks at the labels, often the limitations, we put on ourselves and others.
The guests inspire the audience to challenge those limitations, encouraging them to create Nametags - concrete representations of the goals they want to pursue and the people they want to become.
