Playing Through the Pain: Strategies for Working in the Real World

After 25 years of speaking and writing about the impacts of technologies on “the human in the machine,” Richard Thieme documented the traumatic consequences for security and intelligence professionals of swimming in dark and turbulent waters that challenged our abilities, our ethos, and sometimes our very identity. Who we thought we were came up against what we had to do and the friction threw off sparks.

This webinar goes beyond those stories to explore in particular how what dominant cultures call “minorities” manage their unique challenges. Thieme has uncharacteristically lived as “a minority” in five different ways and the dynamics and resultant strategies he had learned port seamlessly to the experience of others. There’s more to it than “playing through the pain” - there’s real gold in discovering our capacities for the resilience, power, and self-transcendence intrinsic to the human condition.

Beginning with the “real facts” of the matter, Thieme draws on his experience to suggest ways to make this game a long distance run, not a sprint, and not lose our selves along the way.
