What’s at the core of any relationship?
Trust is absolutely necessary in order to establish not only your reputation, but also cultivate strong authentic personal and professional relationships.
What persona are you adopting to be “successful”?
We’ve learned to use masks to conceal perceived inadequacies and to preserve the ‘polished facade’ that is expected of us as “great” leaders. The other more subtle way, we adopt a certain persona at work that we feel is necessary for achieving desired results.
What are the costs of these masks for your personal life, well-being, and effectiveness as a leader?
Not being authentic and real undermines trust and effectiveness, discourages people from collaboration, creates inner conflict and makes us struggle to align work and home lives.
