“I recently saw Dr. Johnson give a talk on fostering leadership in our daughters. It was empowering and incredibly useful information as we navigate these teenage years. We want our daughters to have grit and determination – how to do this mutually and with mindfulness? I learned quite a bit and am grateful for having had the opportunity to hear Dr. Johnson.”
