Bill Tibbo is the president & CEO of Bill Tibbo & Associates. he is a clinical social worker, Corporate Clinical Consultant and Disaster Management Specialist. In this episode, Bill Tibbo and I discuss how people navigate change in their lives – both small and big. Major crises happen to everyone and dealing with the aftermath can be daunting. Everyone deals with crisis differently; however, through crisis comes transformation. Our true strength as human beings (both personally and communally) emerges during a time of crisis. Through empathy and love it is possible to find a silver lining. In this episode we discuss some of Bill’s work with individuals and organizations during the 9/11 attacks in NYC, the SARS epidemic, and the 1999 earthquake in Istanbul. Finally, we go into the current COVID crises and how people can come together, despite differences in belief and opinion, to do what is necessary to prevail together in the face of adversity.
