11:38 Growing Up
Tony Blauer talks about how typically when people know what he does, they automatically think he must have had a rough childhood and his surroundings led him to become who he is. But that wasn’t necessarily the case. He grew up in Canada, in a typical suburban area where the schools were safe. He wasn’t surrounded by violence.
As he looks back he understands how important it would have been to understand why managing fear would have been different in growing up.
18:55 The Psychology of Fear
Tony talks about how his training for him revealed to him a lightbulb moment. He recognized it was an element of fear and that struck him in understanding it to better teach and coach people.
