    Become invulnerable to defeat

      Failure is not an event, it's a feeling -- a feeling which can lead to burnout and discouragement. This workshop explores strategies for dealing with failure and mitigate the feelings of loss and even benefit from the experience, to become invulnerable to defeat.

    Build beliefs to support you and your work

      Your beliefs about yourself, your situation, and the people and world around you can support and encourage you, or can fill you with despair or anger. This workshop is designed to show how you can build beliefs that support you, and help you envision the world that those beliefs can create for you.

    Take the perspective of The Big You while dealing with your opponents

      Our attitude and goals and even our feeling of well-being can be shaped by how we perceive ourselves and our "enemies" or opponents. This workshop is designed to help you become "The Big You" to put your problems in perspective and help you understand and deal with opponents.

    Honor your Daring Thought

      This workshop covers the core of Dr. Bayard's book -- noticing and using the discomfort or pain that we feel when we realize that something is wrong, such as suffering or injustice, and find your Daring Thought. Honoring your Daring Thought can give you a purpose, relieve your pain, and make a difference in the world.
