Unstoppable Mindset

Inclusion, Diversity and encountering something different and unexpected. We all have reacted to different kinds of people and unexpected situations often with fear and unacceptance. Join blind World Trade Center survivor, No. 1 NY Times Bestseller and Chief Vision Officer for accessiBe, Michael Hingson as he talks with thought leaders and others about our often blinding fear of inclusion and our resistance to change. Mike will explore the idea that no matter the situation or different kinds of people we encounter our own fears and prejudices often are the strongest barriers to moving forward. This podcast is presented by accessCast, an accessiBe initiative.

episode 46: Unstoppable Guy with Dr. David Schein

By now, regular listeners to this podcast have observed that I begin episodes with the word “Unstoppable”.

You will hear near the end of this episode why I used “Unstoppable Guy” as the title.   Anyway, meet Dr. David Schein, JD, Ph.D...
