You're not a Cow, You're a Fat Horse

Justin Howard leads this keynote which is based on his soon-to-be-released book.  The concept centers around a commonly uttered phrase "You guys are so _________ (funny, clever, quick-witted, etc.), I could never do that".  The presentation will challenge the notion that we are held back by unchangeable qualities and therefore cannot, and should not, aspire to more.  This topic touches on the areas of listening, quick thinking, creativity, and teamwork.
