The Connection Between Hope & Health
Do you know the difference between false hope and true hope?

Libby Gill has spent years studying the science of hope theory, which is "the interconnection between beliefs and behaviors." In her book, The Hope-Driven Leader, she set out to explore how this theory can shift mindsets from siloed to collaborative and productivity levels from sluggish to robust.

She also applies this theory to one's health and the ability to aid in addressing a range of diseases, even cancer, in this encore episode from 2018.
