Event Title: 
"“The Tools: Transform Your Problems into Courage, Confidence, and Creativity” by Phil Stutz & Barry Michels

This month, Laura Mendelow will be facilitating a discussion on the book, “The Tools: Transform Your Problems into Courage, Confidence, and Creativity” by Phil Stutz & Barry Michels.  The authors (both of whom are therapists) struggled with some of their patients who were aware of the psychological nature of their issues but lacked the tools to propel them forward. After years of experimentation, the authors created a universal set of “tools” to help anyone realize their full potential. During this session, we will explore the tools, the theories behind the tools, and applications at work and at home.

Laura Mendelow will be co-leading this session with Clara Martinez.
