Client feedback

As a leader for over 20 years in military and business settings I didn’t realize that many of my habits, which allowed me to thrive early in my career, were actually unconscious responses to the real or imagined experience of threat.  Working with Dr. Wickremasinghe allowed me to understand that these threat loops significantly narrow my ability to respond and grow as a leader.  Her focus on deep reflection and noticing pushed me wrestle with my unconscious responses and overcome many of the threat loops stifling my ability to effectively lead.  Beyond Threat is an incredible distillation of her research and methods into a digestible and practical book for leaders who want a deeper understanding of why they do what they do and how to grow their own leadership.
