    In her book The Karma of Success: Spiritual Strategies to Free Your Inner Genius  and in her keynotes, Liz Tran explores how to find career success through a spiritual tool kit that is based on ancient sources wisdom like Zen, Reiki, the Tao, and Buddhism. She speaks to a new world where perks and prestige have taken a back seat to values and meaning, and offers a fresh and timely playbook for reaching one’s greatest potential. She grounds her lessons in the Four Pillars of Spiritual Strategy—inquiring inward, manifesting mindfully, enriching your energy, and becoming brilliant.

Tran cautions us against approaching our careers with a “mechanical work” mentality (following the prescriptions given by peers, colleagues, and society) that often leads us to becoming overworked, burnt out, and unfulfilled. Instead, she advocates for “intuitive work” (following our inner voice or gut feeling) to find success, happiness, and fulfillment in both our professional and personal life. A big believer in post-work, Tran provides concrete takeaways that employees can practice beyond the workshops to continue building a foundation for personal growth.
