Speaker: Dr. Anthony Rao, Ph.D.
The Fenn School
516 Monument Street
Concord, MA 01742

The times we live in are exceptional — this is great, and at the same time, not so great. Things move so fast that we all struggle to keep up. Too much is stimulating our minds all day and increased demands make it hard to adapt and prosper. When we lose our ability to adapt we stop learning and growing — and can’t succeed at our goals — and that’s when we lose our agency.

Agency is the ability to act as an effective agent for yourself — getting your mind, body, and emotions in balance to think clearly, advocate for yourself, and make choices that create good things in your life. 

At this event, Dr. Rao will discuss his just-released book, co-authored with Paul Napper, Psy.D., The Power of Agency, written based on years of research and real-world application. Dr. Rao will guide you to develop your “inner agent,” to fully become the author of your life and to:

  • Problem solve and make good decisions
  • Find your voice
  • Be in control under stress
  • Take on challenges with greater confidence at home and at work
  • Follow your own path, and not the herd 

Dr. Rao will provide seven principles to conquer obstacles, make effective decisions, and create a life on your own terms. Prior to the event, registrants will have access to an exclusive online Agency Practices Inventory, a brief assessment that will provide feedback on the seven principles of agency that people use to be more focused, make better decisions, and achieve their goals.

Copies of The Power of Agency book will be for sale before and after the presentation. A book signing will follow the speaking program.  

This event is for adults only.
