Thomas Cassidy, CEO

In a meeting with a mother reciting a litany of ill-focused complaints, I grew frustrated – but I consciously stilled my impulse to react and practiced one of the HeartMath tools in the moment. Now, with my breathing and emotions calmed, I began to hear the woman in a different way. Her problem, I realized, wasn’t with the quality of care – it was her own apprehension at the approaching release of her baby from the preemie unit. Once I understood how frightened she was, I was not only able to stay calm myself, but to calm the woman.
