Winner of the 2023 Goody Business Book Awards in Self-Help - Personal Transformation
Despite having a desire to succeed, we are so accustomed to working hard to reach our goals and produce results in the workplace, that many of us sacrifice our deeper humanity in the process. This timely book is ideally suited for the current era of anxiety and global upheaval that has awakened us to our collective dissatisfaction with the status quo. The philosophy of yoga is an ancient, time-tested system that enables us to shift internally so we may continue creating, innovating, and initiating despite pressure and setbacks. An empowering secret is how it enables us to be present, clear, and connected.
Susan utilizes modern vocabulary to share these concepts and simple processes that have been proven effective over several millennia. These yogic principles and practices will transform working relationships from conflict-creating, stress-inducing, goal-oriented, reactive struggles into harmonious, effective, and responsive partnerships. The result will be deeper fulfillment and joy from work, and enable people to see opportunities that were previously hidden. Ultimately, they will feel more confident that they have the right motivations and therefore can trust that they are doing the right things for the right reasons.
