Harry Cohen,

After a decade of serving patients in his private practice, Dr. Harry Cohen (Ph.D, Psychology, University of Michigan) began a career in executive and leadership coaching, applying the same principles he used in family therapy to Fortune 500 companies.

In doing so, he developed the principles of "being the sun," which led to the creation of Be the Sun, Not the Salt, a book and philosophy designed to help uplift, inspire, and bring a more positive outlook to one’s self and others.

On Heliotropism
At dawn, all sunflowers will start off the day facing east, getting ready for the sun to emerge over the horizon. As the sun moves across the sky as the day goes on, only the younger sunflowers will follow along and pivot to the west. Once the sun sets in the western sky, those young sunflowers will slowly turn back to east during the night, waiting for the sun to rise once again.
