  • September 27 — Make Mistakes Work For You
    Mistakes! We make them every day. But instead of beating ourselves up, we should be congratulating ourselves. In this  discussion, Professor Patrick Barton shows how to use mistakes to our own advantage in order to improve relationships with  family, friends, and colleagues.
