160. Expert Interview: Harnessing Your Innate Power at Work
Susan Bernstein helps people transform their careers by taking control of their innate power—whether they’re sensitive, emotional, or just plain stuck—and using it to claim the next rung on their personal success ladder. Her approaches blend left-brain logic honed in corporate America with right-brain creative movement from research in mind-body psychology.
Harnessing Your Innate Power at Work
Why Is This Important?
“We want to be wise, smart and savvy at work. That’s great, nothing wrong with that. But when we’re dealing with the stress, anxiety, change and chaos at work, and need to be our most resilient and flexible, we actually need to learn to use what’s below the neck.”
What Are the Key Lessons Learned Here?
“Using breath, movement, posture and awareness of our sensations can help us to be more present, more fluid and flexible in the now. We need to pay attention to what our bodies are telling us at work, then use that body power to transform in a moment what’s going on.”
