Maximizing Human Performance by Understanding the Impact of Trauma

“When I broke my neck and my career ended instantly, I thought I would be OK.”
Later, when I woke up in hospital paralyzed from the chest down I thought my life was over. (no arms, no legs, no bladder, no bowels). The impact of a catastrophic physical trauma would ultimately rob me of my emotional well being; my identity, my self image & my self worth. I was stuck emotionally and physically. I needed to know more. During my 13 year recovery we found that I would get better faster by working on my emotional state and not just my physical health.  
We shared what we had discovered with other people who were trying to recover or improve their performance and it worked for them as well. Then, the scientific evidence supporting System 4.3.8 began to surface and medical conferences started hiring me to share my story and System 438 and they loved it.
I am the author of The Trauma Code,  Thriving in Transition, and System 438.  My  books, courses and models make you more aware of the dangers of mental ignorance and provides a systematic approach to better managing trauma and improving your human performance.
