Founder, Embright - Author - Your Body Is Your Mind

Today’s guest is Dr. Amanda Blake, a Body/Mind leadership coach, founder of Embright and author of the book Your Body Is Your Mind. We discuss her unique career path that marries the intricacies of mind-body science with the art of leadership and behavior change. We started with a very honest discussion of what it took her to find her true calling, and there are a few interesting learnings in that conversation if you are still in search of the career that fulfills your purpose.

Then we talked about the connection between body and mind – how it works and the impact it has on our leadership. Amanda also shared a couple actionable somatic practices that you can adopt immediately.
