Susan Schmitt Winchester

Healing at Work

Can you turn your workplace into a “laboratory” to do emotional healing? Susan Schmitt Winchester is the head of Human Resources at Applied Materials and most recently the co-author (with Martha I. Finney) of Healing At Work: A Guide to Using Career Conflicts to Overcome Your Past and Build the Future You Deserve. Susan shares her story (content warning: child abuse), explains the difference between the “unconscious wounded career path” and the “conscious healing career path,” and defines the “bumper car” moment.
