How do optimists see the world differently than pessimists? What are the benefits of being an optimist, both personally and professionally? Can optimism be a learned behavior? What are the connections and differences between resilience and optimism? Patrick Sweeney joins us to answer these questions and to discuss his work coaching people in transition. He is an accomplished author, senior executive, and leadership and transition coach. Yes, a transition coach, but not in the traditional sense at all. He has become a student of positive psychology, both by personal experiences and by education, having earned a Master’s degree in Positive Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania. He has become an ‘optimizer of change,’ helping people create new possibilities for themselves and others, and for helping them to achieve extraordinary personal and professional growth.
