I've spent most of my professional life in clinical psychology, primarily as a psychotherapist and now as a management consultant. Reviewing audio programs for more than two decades has exposed me to some great thinkers and helped me become more effective in my work. But the biggest gift has been how listening helps me grow personally, look at myself with calmer eyes, and connect with others with a kinder heart.
