When we quit thinking primarily about ourselves and our own self-preservation,
we undergo a truly heroic transformation of consciousness.
Joseph Campbell, The Power of Myth


The word hero conjures up images of firefighters, police officers, and medical personnel aiding victims in the aftermath of a tragedy. It’s synonymous with courage, determination, bravery, and selflessness. But not all heroes burst through a smokescreen of disaster; sometimes they just go to work and do their job helping others every day. Join us as Joshua Greene, renowned historian and documentary filmmaker, shows us how the real life actions of noble historical figures parallel your career and the things you do every day. Discover how your calling offers the opportunity to be a hero in your own right and why maintaining honor and integrity throughout your career is so important.
