They Can See Through You
Are you a confident, self-aware leader who likes themself? If you aren’t, chances are the team can see right through you. It is exhausting to be multiple versions of yourself – one at work, one at home. In fact, it is impossible to pull that off and do it well for very long. You and those you love will suffer. How can you change that? Become aware and stay in tune with the nudges life is sending your way. Have you had an embarrassing failure, conflict with others, an important lapse in communication? Those are examples of signs that life is sending to prompt you to begin looking at yourself. Often examples are helpful, and that is what this podcast’s guest provides. Dr. James Kelley was ignoring some of life’s nudges, and in the course of getting back on track he interviewed and wrote about authentic leaders who thrived in adversity. This podcast may give you the nudge needed.
