Join Sheryl Sandberg and Adam Grant, authors of Option B, as they talk about building resilience and moving forward after life's inevitable setbacks. After the sudden death of her husband, Sheryl felt certain that she and her children would never feel pure joy again. Her friend Adam, a psychologist at Wharton, told her there are steps people can take to recover and even rebound. Option B combines Sandberg's emotional insights and Grant's eye-opening research on finding strength in the face of adversity. The authors will share what they've learned on helping others in crisis, developing compassion for ourselves, raising strong children, and creating resilient families, communities and workplaces. Many of these lessons can be applied to ordinary struggles, allowing us to build resilience for whatever lies ahead. They will discuss the capacity of the human spirit to persevere... and to rediscover joy. *Each ticket includes a book.
