Embracing your shadow side doesn’t have to be scary or full of anxiety. It can be a creative place where we solve problems and learn how to manage life a bit more efficiently. Where being whole is working with both your light and dark side to step into your strengths. Today we have a fascinating topic and guest to dismantle the universal idea that only positive concepts are of value.

Named one of the top 58 people changing people’s lives by Psychologies magazine, Todd Kashdan is among the world’s top experts on the psychology of well-being, strengths, social relationships, stress, and coping. He uses this work to help leaders and organizations instill a healthy culture that is curious, productive, creative, and resilient.

For 20 years, Todd has been conducting cutting-edge scientific research on the conditions that lead to optimal psychological functioning in social relationships and the workplace. He’s written two books— Curious? Discover the Missing Ingredient to a Fulfilling Life and The Upside of Your Dark Side: Why being your whole self – not just your “good” self – drives success and fulfillment.

Todd is also a professor of psychology and senior scientist of the Center for the Advancement of Well-Being at George Mason University.
