“We know from a lot of research that when things get tough, the general rule is people actually tend to help people out…” ~Glenn R. Fox
Today’s interview brings the return of Season 2, episode #12 guest Glenn R. Fox, head of Design, Strategy, and Outreach at USC Performance Science Institute. For more background on Glenn, be sure to check out our prior interview.
The topic de jour is Covid-19 and the current pandemic, which sets the backdrop for a discussion about concepts such as optimism, gratitude, and purpose.
Glenn shares various insights based upon his and others’ studies and research that suggests, for instance, the general trend in crises is for people to be kind and compassionate, and that optimistic people tend to be more realistic and cautionary.
Glenn leaves us with three real-life exercises we can practice in order to develop the skills that foster the powerful traits of purpose, optimism, and gratitude.
