How to Use Fear To Your Advantage

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Some consider George Kourounis to be fearless, but nothing could be further from the truth. It takes a certain kind of person to drive into the eye of a hurricane, to dangle from a rope over a steaming volcano or to jump into a pond with thousands of hungry piranhas, and although Kourounis has done all these things (and much more), he was not without fear.  While the adventures you experience at GPUG Summit are less life threatening, your adrenaline may still run high: perhaps you're presenting a session for the first time, or back at the office you're undertaking an upgrade or implementing a new add-on. By understanding why we are afraid to do something and by analyzing the possible outcomes, Kourounis shows that fear is not only something that can be managed & controlled, it is a vital element to accomplishing anything worthwhile.  Whether in business, personal challenges or extreme exploration, fear is what gives us an edge. Kourounis teaches us how to harness our fear, and use it to our advantage.
This is a general session for all UG groups.
