What We Think About, We Bring About: Orchestrating Opportunity with Peter McCoppin (Episode #89)

If we have a sense of psychological safety, it frees up our creativity, our imagination, and our innovative mind. It allows us to test our assumptions and explore different ideas without fear of reprisal or judgment. It’s time for us to free up those energies and turn them into something with help from today’s guest, Peter McCoppin.

Episode Highlights


About Our Guest

Executive coach, keynote speaker, international orchestral conductor, and national host/broadcaster Peter McCoppin comes armed with proof that being emotionally available to those around us and leading with questions is a powerful tool for creating a compassionate environment. He also discusses how the neuroscience of the brain causes us to be drawn to those who are helpful, and how the helpers will rise to the top in times of trouble. Failure is a part of learning, and that by embracing this mindset, we can overcome difficulty and see the beauty in life’s challenges. With that, let’s jump right in and learn how to discover your life’s purpose!
