Last week we talked about the power of workforce culture and continuous talent mobility, and this week we’re going to talk about authenticity.
The fact that it’s more than a buzzword shows it has truly powerful significance to both employee and employer. Authenticity is hard work and usually involves some risk, but the payoff potential is huge.
And the fact that authenticity is an inside job — you have to start with yourself.
Unfortunately according to this week’s guests (and the hosts as well), authenticity is not that simple, it’s not neat and orderly, it’s not always safe, and it’s certainly not as common as we’d like to see, especially in the workplace.
