In this second part of our best-of series, we talk with Sarah
Nannen. With four children under 6 -- the youngest just a few
months old -- Sarah's life was upended as both a mother and a wife
when her husband, an Air Force fighter pilot, was killed in a
training accident. A former naval officer herself, she understood
how to navigate through the material and logistical details of the
tragedy, but needed to learn how to move through the emotional
upheaval of instantly becoming a widow and a single mother. In this
episode, she tells BEYOND THE CRUCIBLE host and Crucible Leadership
founder Warwick Fairfax that she needed to lean into her pain to
build a new and hope-filled future. Today she helps others who have
been rocked by crucible experiences find the emotional strength to
not be defined by their tragedies and setbacks. "There is more to
your life," she says, "than the thing that happened to you."
You are more than your failures and setbacks. We share stories of leaders who have moved beyond life’s most difficult moments to lead lives of significance, and insights on how you can do the same. Hosted by Warwick Fairfax.
