Do you ever feel you can't be your true self at work? Only using half of your brain?  Holding back your sense of humor? Beyond the Legal Lens is a podcast about finding your authentic self in the workplace. It's inspired by the late Frederick Busch, a Professor of Literature at Colgate University, who emphasized identifying through whose lens are we looking while reading a story?  Are we ourselves or trying to be what we think the world wants us to be?

I'm Emily Witt.  Join me as I dive into conversations about how people can show their true colors in a professional setting. This can lead to success and fulfillment.  Each guest offers tips about how to thrive by bringing the most important person in their lives to the office.
