Peeling the onion…

It’s important to be ourselves, at all times, including the workplace.

To show up with our true identity and values.
To shine a light on our true potential.
To give ourselves permission to have doubts and off-days.

After all, “It’s OK not to be OK” and to show emotions.
It’s powerful to acknowledge ‘I don’t know’ as a leader.
You don’t have to be the smartest person in the room all the time.

Not having the answer can help open up the conversation.
It allows us to be human, to be ‘more like you’ in the workplace.

So go on a journey, ‘peel the onion’ and slowly reveal your true self.

There should be no distinction in how you show up at work or outside of work.
Show your whole self, your true self, your ‘me’ self.

Teams want leaders they can believe in.

Leaders who are human and fallible, who lead with conviction
and yet are humble enough to ask questions and take counsel.

As an individual or as a leader you will be more satisfied in the work that you do,
and your contribution to it, by being true to you.
