Powerhouse: Protect Your Energy, Optimize Your Health, and Supercharge Your Performance by Dr. Greg Wells

Available April 4

Powerhouse by Dr. Greg Wells

In his latest book, physiologist Dr. Greg Wells shows readers how to boost energy, fight inflammation, and optimize their health — cell by cell.

Our bodies are constantly rebuilding. Every six months, over 98% of the cells in our body are new and at the core of each and every one of them are the mitochondria, or the “energy factories”, which power our cells. Powerhouse reveals simple yet revolutionary ways to heal and boost your mitochondria and in doing so, repair and improve your whole body. These methods include practicing quick and easy breathing exercises, taking new supplements, and avoiding the use of technology that can damage your mitochondria. As a result, you will feel less tired, experience better moods, and increase your hormonal health.

Based on groundbreaking science, including Greg’s own research as a senior scientist at SickKids Hospital in Toronto, Powerhouse provides a scientific but accessible path to sustainable and healthy high performance.

The Five Practices of Highly Resilient People by Dr. Taryn Marie Stejskal

The 5 Practices of Highly Resilient People: Why Some Flourish When Others Fold

Resilience is categorically misunderstood. It’s so much more than “bouncing back”. True resilience allows us to grow in the face of challenge and become even better than we were before.

For the last 20 years, Dr. Taryn Marie Stejskal has conducted qualitative research on the power of resilience, studying the science behind why some people succeed while others fail. In her debut book, she outlines the five critical behaviours that define successful resilience — vulnerability, productive perseverance, connection, gratiosity (gratitude and generosity), and possibility — and provides practical tools to effectively address challenges, complexity, and change.

Resilient People bounce forward, take an active approach to facing challenges, and most importantly, are made, not born. Taryn’s empirically proven framework shows readers how to develop and adopt resilient practices in their lives — as adults, as parents, and across organizations — that allow them to be enhanced by their experiences, not diminished.

Both Greg and Taryn have created complementary keynote topics based on their new books. Contact us to learn more and how to bring these in-demand speakers to your next event.
