My work is all about helping people be true to them selves in work and in life. We are whole people here to enjoy everything we do. The easiest and most effective way to be is authentic. Being authentic though is also the most challenging journey of all.
It is easy to learn and acquire knowledge. You can then say yes I know this. Then you can develop the skills to apply this knowledge. Yet in all these stages of development how do you express your self? How are you consistent, congruent, aligned?
These are the kind of questions people ask when they come to me. They want to feel complete. Yes there are ups and downs, bumps in the road. Overall though when it comes down to it the best feeling is knowing who you are and acting from this place.
When groups come together it is then about how a group can be authentic. This requires commitment, vulnerability and application. To be an authentic group is not just about showing up and seeing what happens.
The starting place for both individuals and groups is knowing. Knowing yourself. Not on the surface. Not by a boxed system but really knowing yourself.
So do you know you?
So are you being you?
Does your group, team know?
