You Can’t Push through Uncertainty with Steven Feinberg

By: | |

“When confronted by uncertainty, first adapters win not by pushing harder with willpower, but by unlocking the game of patterns.”

– Steven Feinberg

Steven joins me today to discuss what NeuroStrategy is and how it can help leaders and organizations triumph. He shares how growing up in a world of uncertainty shaped his path to becoming a NeuroStrategist.

He explains the characteristics of a “first adapter” and outlines the principles of NeuroStrategy.
