Darren Gold
Mastering Your Code

As human beings we are born with a genetic code that we believe makes us who we are and guides our behavior – that we’re hardwired to react in a certain way. What if this is a myth? What if we can erase and replace our internal programming and master our own code? According to Darren Gold, our behavior is driven by a subconscious program of our own making. Our genes don’t have full control of our lives, we do. Darren teaches how you can rewrite and master your code in every aspect of life. Darren advises and coaches CEOs and leadership teams at many of the world’s most innovative companies, including Roche, Dropbox, Cisco, eBay, and Warner Bros. He is the author of the book, Master Your Code: The Art, Wisdom, and Science of Leading an Extraordinary Life.
