  • Coping with Pandemic Fatigue

    As we near the end of 2020, normalcy remains elusive. After so many months of instability, many are feeling the strain of the pandemic. Recently, this has been addressed as ‘Pandemic Fatigue.’ Much of the hope and unity that allowed us to overcome the early challenges this year have given way to emotional exhaustion.

    With constantly shifting challenges, the science of emotions offers genuine hope – several paths through a tough emotional landscape. Even when circumstances restrict us, intentional processing and regulation of emotions can improve our ability to navigate the outside world.

    Fortunately, we are bringing to you the wonderful work of two world-leading emotion scientists, authors, and teachers - Marc Brackett and Lisa Feldman Barrett. Their webinars in November and December will build on their 2019 conference talks, and refresh and upgrade your skills for navigating difficult emotions.

  • Emotion: Facts vs Myths

    In this talk, we’ll explore a series of experiments about emotion whose conclusions seem to defy common sense. We’ll learn that common sense is wrong, and has been for 2000 years. In the process, we’ll dispel several of the most widespread fictions about emotions that lurk in boardrooms, classrooms and bedrooms around the world. We’ll then explore a radically new scientific understanding of what emotions are and how they work....

    Rewire is a coaching and development company dedicated to assisting companies in investing in their most important asset...their people.

    We are dedicated to developing people by transforming the way they think so they may experience authentic, sustainable change and growth in their work and personal lives while being contagiously engaging and inspiring to those they lead. We've observed, and science has proven, that transformed thinking leads to transformed actions.

    Authenticity addresses our belief that truth and transparency are the gateways to the  transformation organizations seek.

    Sustainability is about our long-term, counter-cultural approach to growth. Breaking patterns and creating new ones takes time and effort, but oh, is it worth it!

    Change and Growth are because we believe that every human being is innately designed to get better. Old dogs can and should learn new tricks. We help people tangibly change and grow to get where it is they want to go in business and in life.
