Sheryl Sandberg in conversation with Dr. Mike Feinberg


What: Sheryl Sandberg, co-author with Adam Grant of OPTION B, will be in conversation with Dr. Mike Feinberg, 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, suggested specific steps people can take to recover and rebound. 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. They will discuss the capacity of the human spirit to persevere and to rediscover joy.
