Resilience: From Killing Fields to Boardroom - The S.A.L.T Effect
Salt has always been highly regarded as a preservative and flavor enhancer and in some cultures it was even considered a form of currency. Salt is also essential for digestion, proper nerve transmission and is found in our blood, sweat, and tears - our bodies need salt to survive. In Resilience: Killing Fields to Boardroom, Dr. Emad Rahim invites us on an inner journey of transformation, sharing how S.A.L.T. was a necessary component along the way. Dr. Rahim, a genocide survivor and refugee of the Khmer Rouge Killing Fields of Cambodia, developed the S.A.L.T. model of Surviving, Adapting, Loving and Transforming as a means of helping him overcome the struggles of his youth, including prejudice, abuse, childhood violence, and dyslexia. The city he grew up in, Syracuse New York is also known as the Salt City.
