Rick Andrews, Corporate Trainer and Improvisation Teacher, joins us for a discussion of Susan Cain's latest book, Bittersweet: How Sorrow and Longing Make Us Whole. We look at how people and organizations are enriched and empowered by embracing grief, sorrow, and longing.

In Bittersweet, Susan Cain looks at the positive side of unpleasant emotions.

We talk about how comfort with unpleasant emotions enables people and organizations to have the hard conversations, how positivity and humor can be toxic, and how authenticity serves as an antidote.

Listen in if you are interested in how to lead through hard times with integrity.
