It’s important to feel Unshakeable at work. When you feel Unshakeable you are empowered, rather than dis-empowered. You are a superpower at work – you handle conflicts well, and you operate with the appropriate speed and precision. When you choose to feel Unshakeable at work you have the confidence to make decisions, share ideas, speak up and get the job done. You have the confidence to back yourself, even when your decisions are not popular.
