For those of you in the corporate environment here is a link to my recent radio show Authenticity in the Workplace as Guest Host on Reclaiming Your Self: Women Unedited and Engaged
All we want is to be accepted for who we are, wherever we are, and we spend the majority of our time at work. Yet work is the one place many of us feel we cannot be our authentic self, it is the one place we may feel we have to leave a part of who we are at the door to be reclaimed once the day is done. The masks that we wear in order to be accepted and part of the team creates a barrier for our authentic self to emerge, the question is, is it necessary? What if there was a way for us to be our authentic selves, at work? What kind of an environment would we create for ourselves? What would the world of work look and feel like?
Join Lisa with guests Angela Burton and Claire Harris, as they explore what they have discovered it means, and what it takes, to be unapologetically, our authentic selves in the workplace.
