Emilia Lahti is a researcher and social activist whose life mission is to be a catalyst for human connection, compassion, and nonviolence.  She has given talks at Stanford, UC Berkeley, and Tedx, as well as at Singularity University at NASA Ames, where she studied futurism and exponential technology.  Her work has been featured in the New Yorker, Business Insider, and Forbes, among others.

In this conversation, you will hear Emilia explain Sisu, which I describe as my reserve tank of motivation and energy in those moments when I’m up against something. Sisu exists in the presence of some sort of adversity. As humans, we tend to shy away from things that are difficult, but Sisu allows us to exceed ourselves.
