What Harry Potter Can Teach Us About Resilience


So our Chief Strategy Officer, LesLee, here at Bright Morning Consulting shared this podcast with me today, so I wanted to share with you all. Although I am not a Harry Potter fan, I love anything that connects to resilience! LesLee and I talked about how we each have a son who loves to read Harry Potter, and I love knowing that they are getting a little lesson in resilience as they read.

So here is what you are getting in the podcast:

Vanessa and Casper explore the theme of resilience in chapter twelve of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince. This week Casper and Vanessa discuss Harry’s obsession with Draco, why Filch is still at Hogwarts, and Katie’s amazing friend Leanne. Throughout the episode we consider the question: How do we know when to keep going and when to quit? Thanks to Annie for this week’s voicemail! Next week we’re reading chapter thirteen, The Secret Riddle, through the theme of Superstition, and we’ll be joined by special guest Mike Shubert from the Potterless Podcast! Please consider supporting our Don’t Be A Dursley campaign. We’re trying to raise $25K by Christmas for RAICES – an organization that helps immigrants and refugees struggling for rights in our country.
