Behind Her Empire Podcast: Joan Rosenberg, Ph.D. on Building Confidence That Lasts

On this week's episode of Behind Her Empire, meet Joan Rosenberg, Ph.D., an expert psychologist, best selling author and founder of "Emotional Mastery" and "Emotional Mastery Training," a method for gaining and sustaining emotional strength and confidence. Hear her discuss why the inability to move through and handle unpleasant feelings such as sadness, shame, embarrassment and frustration is a major roadblock in reaching success.


Rosenberg helps her clients with these overwhelming or uncomfortable feelings, and begin to build the self-confidence, emotional strength and resilience needed to lead a highly successful and fulfilling life.

She also discusses the challenge and importance of speaking up, especially for women. Rosenberg believes "the more able we are to put words to our experience, the more authentic we become" and that by being direct in our communication, and being more in touch with our feelings, the closer we can get to success.

"If we try to cut out the unpleasant, we're cutting out half of our life experience — or potentially half of our life experience. And it doesn't allow us to be authentic. The ability to actually experience these feelings — it is our sense of aliveness…because the sense of aliveness to it, it's the thing that actually allows us to connect deeply with ourselves, and ultimately deeply with another person." — Joan Rosenberg, Ph.D.

Joan Rosenberg, Ph.D. is a professor of graduate psychology at Pepperdine University and is a two-time TED speaker with her videos garnering millions of views. She's also been seen on CNN's "American Morning," the O Network and PBS. Her latest book, "90 Seconds to a Life You Love: How to Master Your Difficult Feelings to Cultivate Lasting Confidence, Resilience and Authenticity" was released last year.
