Join us for an enlightening evening with Sheryl Sandberg in conversation with Mary Matalin.
Sandberg, international best-selling author of Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead has released a new book with Adam Grant - Option B: Facing Adversity, Building Resistance, and Finding Joy.
Each ticket includes one copy of Option B the new book by Sheryl Sandberg and Adam Grant. Books will be distributed to ticket holders at the event.
Join Sheryl Sandberg, co-author (with Adam Grant) of Option B, in conversation with Mary Matalin, as they talk about building resilience and moving forward after life’s inevitable setbacks. After the sudden death of her husband, Sheryl felt certain that she and her children would never feel pure joy again. Her friend Adam, a psychologist at Wharton, told her there are steps people can take to recover and even rebound. Option B combines Sheryl’s emotional insights and Adam’s eye-opening research on finding strength in the face of adversity. Sheryl will share what she and Adam learned together about helping others in crisis, developing compassion for ourselves, raising strong children, and creating resilient families, communities and workplaces. Many of these lessons can be applied to ordinary struggles, allowing us to build resilience for whatever lies ahead. They will discuss the capacity of the human spirit to persevere… and to rediscover joy.
