In turbulent times, we need a unique perspective to find the opportunities in adversity and to respond to challenges with action. Mother/daughter team Stephanie Marston and Ama Marston join us to illuminate this perspective with wisdom from their book Type R: Transformative Resilience for Thriving in a Turbulent World. They share details on a critical quality they call Transformative Resilience: the ability to “move away from a tendency to catastrophize” and pursue success despite facing upheaval, crisis, and change.

They shared the individual and collective triumphs of people coping with the stress of daily life and the challenges and disruptions that rattle all our lives at some point. And they drew upon research that spans the personal and the professional, the local and the global. Reaching across psychology, neuroscience, business, and politics, the Marston's demonstrate how we can use challenges to innovate, create new strengths, and grow.
