In this episode of The Optimized Mind, Dr. Kate talks with entrepreneur and CEO of Giant Leaps Learning, Michael Trezza. The discussion focuses on the work of Giant Leaps Learning in helping kids to develop social emotional learning and leadership skills to prepare them for an increasingly complex world. Lessons on discourse, connection and giving a sense of agency back to kids are at the heart of this fascinating discussion.
Michael is a 20+ year technology entrepreneur and CEO with a formal education in fine art and painting. His experience and love for tech, psychology, nature, art & music shaped his unique perspective on work and life. Becoming a father opened his eyes to the shortcomings of traditional education to prepare a new generation for what he sees as a rapidly changing world and he discovered his why. Michael’s mission is to inspire and engage people to become curious, capable, passionate, purposeful, and globally aware leaders, and to find true success in all aspects of their lives.
