Social Scientist, Author of "I Can't Believe I Just Did That"
The right amount of courage is critical to any successful endeavor. It takes courage to lead an organization, to embrace and implement change, to speak in public, even to pick up the phone and make a cold call. Some individuals seem to have a natural ability to tap into their courageous resources; others remain immobilized by fear and doubt. Still others could be described as “too courageous” and end up acting in an inappropriate and counter-productive manner. Harvard-trained social scientist David Allyn, Ph.D. is an expert on the dynamics of everyday courage. A popular writer whose articles have appeared in the New York Times, the Washington Post, the Boston Globe and numerous scholarly journals, Allyn is the author of I Can’t Believe I Just Did That, an insightful exploration of personal courage, with a focus on the workplace, child-rearing, and public affairs. An engaging speaker who has appeared on ABC, CNN, MSNBC and The History Channel and has been profiled the New York Times, Allyn will leave your audience with a new understanding of how courage plays a role in almost every aspect of daily life.
