"Beyond Surviving to Thriving," Lessons from 9/11 with Michael Hingson
Far from being an increasingly distant event from our collective history,
the lessons of 9/11 are vital for successfully coping with the chaos of
today's economic climate.
According to Michael Hingson, World Trade Center survivor, "this country is
undergoing a radical attack of the status quo, as people are confronted with
radical changes - whether changes in livelihood, financial status or the
competitive environment - many of which are confusing and painful. Safety
and security in the traditional ways of doing things have been stripped
To some, Michael Hingson is another person with a "disability." For those
who know his amazing story, his superior "abilities" enabled him to
successfully navigate through the chaos of the terrorist attacks of 9/11.
Michael and his Guide Dog Roselle lead a group of people down from the 78th
floor of the World Trade Center to safety moments before the building
collapsed. His "disability"--blindness - became an asset; his teamwork with
Roselle saved his life and the lives of those with him.
For Michael Hingson, teamwork and overcoming adversity are not optional.
Join Robert Acosta, host of Accessible World "Tek Talk," to hear Michael
share how you can navigate beyond "surviving" to thriving!
