Speaker & Moderator: Prof Joel Peterson

Session Description: Professor Joel Peterson leads a heartfelt, honest and interactive discussion around real-life challenges and failures experienced by classmates. There will be discussion in both large group and small break-out group settings.  Peterson will explore situations such as job loss, business failure, health issues (including COVID-19), discrimination, divorce, aging parents and the death of loved ones. We all have or will face deep challenges. The goal of the session is for all of us to feel better prepared to get through the tough times and to also see how we can grow from them. This discussion will highlight helpful approaches during and after adversity from Peterson’s experiences as well as from those in attendance, so please be ready to participate.  


Session Discussion Question Participants Should be Prepared to Answer: What were specific ways you got through a setback/challenge and what were the lessons from that experience?


The event is limited to members of MBA Class of 2005.
