Description: Erik Gabrielson and Moira Pettit will finish the conversation they started with us two weeks ago (PPI Webinar: Our Fear Never Sleeps: Break Through Learning and the Power of Possibility, March 24th – available in the online archives). We’ll spend 15-20 minutes building on their suggestions for how we can purposefully choose to move from our comfort zones into the Learning Zone. We’ll finish by hearing from several PPI Deans, Fellows and members share with us how they have intentionally focused on combating the current gloom and despair, and how they are brining hope and positivity to the work they are doing with the families they serve and within the firms where they work or lead.
Introduction to Our Guest Speakers
Erik Gabrielson and Moira Petit cofounded Activ8 in 2010 to support healthy high performing communities. They believe that untapped potential lives in us all, and often it is current limiting beliefs and fears that get in the way of what is possible. Together they bring a rich mix of knowledge and experience that support coaching, connecting, and engaging families, teams and communities. Their experience with their unborn son’s diagnosis brought those tools alive in their own lives, which they now speak and write about.
For the past eighteen years, Erik has focused on coaching individuals, families, and teams to see and commit to reaching new levels of individual and collective potential. He grew up alpine ski racing where he learned the value of taking action within fear and experiencing the exhilaration that waits on the other side. Erik has leveraged his experience to help teams and multigenerational families unleash the power of their people in business and family relationships.
Moira spent the early part of her career in academia teaching and researching high performing athletes and applying that learning into a focus of building healthy active communities across various populations with limited resources. Her published, peer-reviewed research articles and book chapters on issues related to sports medicine, physical activity, and health became a launch pad to apply her research into supporting clients as they strive for new levels of health and performance.
Erik and Moira live with their son and Labrador in Saint Paul, Minnesota where they enjoy being outside in all four seasons.
