Twintalk: We Play in the Gray / Empowerment

Listen below or through your favorite podcast streaming app such as Apple Podcasts, Soundcloud, YouTube, or Google Play.

Today on the podcast we explore the mindset tool we call playing in the gray. We discuss the practice of accepting the as-is, embracing the middle way, and sitting in discomfort long enough to learn from it. Playing in the gray is all about flexible thinking, courage, curiosity and trust…. ultimately a giant improv comedy sketch and an opportunity to create some magic from the mayhem. We laugh, we cry, we lean in. Join us!
