Mike Sedam interviews Ayn Cates Sullivans about how archetypes and stories help us understand the world around us.

This is an interesting discussion that helps us understand ourselves, our use of prototypes, and how stories have impacted behavior and decision-making for thousands of years.

This helps us understand systems-thinking and our own individual place in the world, in society, and in our organizations.

Mike Sedam talks with Dr. Glenn Livingston about self-transformation.

Glenn has based his work on dealing with his own food addiction and helping others. He provides lessons on self-transformation to overcome addiction to food. He explains the role of different parts of the brain in our decision-making. These lessons not only pertain to our health, but can also be used in other areas where we want to make significant changes in our lives.

The role of groups and how we can crowdsource learning is also discussed as an important way to speed up our transformation.
