Dr Tom Edwards has a PhD in Behavioural Neuroscience from Monash University, Australia where for several years post his doctorate he lectured. Upon realising that learning about the brain says little about our shared humanity, Tom went back to further study, gained a Master degree in counselling and shifted his research interests. He has since divided his time between teaching, seeing clients and research. He is currently an accredited supervisor with the Australian Counselling Association. Tom has published in respected international journals and spoken at multiple national and international conferences. More recently, Tom and his co-author Cos have set-up Natural Intelligence Pty. Ltd. (www.naturalintelligence.com.au) as a way to teach professionals how to use virtue-based insights to optimise individual and corporate outcomes. Tom's particular interest is the virtue of hope. Dr Cos Chiera holds a PhD in Mathematics from RMIT University, Australia, and continues to provide tutoring services as an Associate of RMIT for both mathematics and engineering courses. He has lectured at multiple higher education institutions across Victoria. In the late 1990s through to the early 2010s, Cos took time out from academia to work in the corporate world. Starting as a project manager in Y2K projects he worked his way up to Chief Operations Officer (COO), specialising in start-up companies and business triage. Nowadays Cos splits his time between consultancy work, academia, lifesaving (during the summer season) and his family. Indeed, his wife and two daughters provided much of the inspiration for this book. Of particular interest to Cos is the metric of 'Integrity', especially as it applies to the virtues of diligence and honour.
