I teach people

A Smart
New Way

to accelerate meaningful change across families, organizations, and even society  — without blame, stigma, or "touchy-feeliness"

About Me

Since 2007, I’ve taught through Wharton Executive Education, where my classes are among the highest-rated programs for hundreds of leaders. I also teach extensively within financial services, with a special focus on top financial advisors and their clients. I’m the author of The Myth of Stress and the founder of the Resilience Academy.


I live in New York City with my wife and our two little kids.

My Program

My main program — now delivered virtually — looks at:

• what matters most for well-being based on the world’s longest study, and why it’s not simply money, health, or even love
• how crises or “crucibles” make or break us as leaders and as human beings
• a 7-step process that quickly shifts how you handle challenges at work and at home
