"There's a tendency to see a threat where there's no threat," Clif Smith
In Episode 59, PTSD and Beyond welcomes U.S. Army veteran, former diplomat, CIA-trained former intelligence officer who currently serves as EY's Americas Mindfulness Leader and Global Mindfulness Network Leader, Clif Smith.
Clif's newly released book, Mindfulness without the Bells and Beads: Unlocking Exceptional Performance, Leadership, and Well-being for Working Professionals (2021, Wiley) introduces to readers a way to cultivate an effective mindfulness practice free from spiritual undertones.
In our conversation, Clif shares his experiences growing up as a child who barely graduated from high school and how using mindfulness-based techniques helped him overcome self-doubt and other limiting beliefs. He further shares how mindfulness cultivates skills to respond to challenges and situations effectively as well as how to handle even the most difficult conversations.
