Are you hiding the real you from work?
Can you sing? Play the trumpet? Do you bake pies? Do you laugh with your full belly? Do you snort!? Do you paint watercolour or absolutely love to garden? Do you love hip hop or can you rap?
How many on your team know who you really are? Does anyone? Sadly many of us hide our full self from work, or worse….from our teams.
We so often buy into this notion that we have to fit a particular stereotype to be a successful leader - it is all business, all the time.
When I worked in corporate, there was an executive that wasn’t particularly liked. In fact we had many complaints about her behaviour in HR. She was an ice queen. She was ‘perfect’. She hit every deliverable out of the park, and then some. But man, she pushed her people hard!
