How does Zen go to work with you?

I’m working on a new book, Zen Goes to Work, on how we bring Zen to work with us, and also how Zen goes to work IN us. I’m hearing some great stories and examples from people and, whether you’ve trained in Zen for a few months or a few decades, I’d like to hear yours. I’m not looking for Zen-like profundity, but genuine experience of how Zen shows up for you at work, how it supports your development, leadership or even how you answer the phone. For example, I heard this yesterday:

"I used to hate when my phone would ring. I'd think 'who's interrupting me now?' But now what I do, is give myself a good long breath.  It’s almost like center, enter and add value (the first flip in The Zen Leader). I use my breath to center, then enter, go in open-handed.  Who is it?"
