NEW! SISU LAB PODCAST
A NEW PODCAST AIRS IN JANUARY 2023!
Adversities are an integral part of human experience. In this podcast I discuss the determinants of sisu and what it is that enables individuals to endure the toughest of situations and take action against nearly impossible odds. I look in to what is it that keeps us going when we feel we have reached the end of our preconceived mental or physical reserves and yet we overcome and even thrive.
Building on my original work on sisu at University of Pennsylvania (USA) and Aalto University in Finland 2012-2022, the answer to me is a kind of "sisu 2.0" that I call gentle power. It is the higher octave version of sisu that is full of conviction and courage but is constructive on the long-run, is hardy but not hard, and formidable but not foolhardy. It is us going after our biggest goals and facing the strife of life more prepared than we perhaps otherwise would be.
In the Sisu Lab Podcast I bring ideas of inspiration and invitations to action that help you find more mental freedom in the everyday, endure the seemingly impossible, and gain self-knowledge through each step of the way.
Welcome to explore the way of gentle power!
