The Journey From Good to Great: Defying Binaries Along the Way
As I began my journey aspiring to be a great leader for my team, in a fast-paced, tech startup, I realized early into my leadership journey that people are used to thinking one can only be strong in either, this or that and not both. I call it “setting expectations in binaries”. How can the same person be —social AND task-oriented? Empathetic for her colleagues AND be radically candid? Intuitive about decisions AND be data centric? Kick-ass and warm-and-fuzzy? If that sounds familiar, you also know questioning the status quo is easier said than done. I will share with you my frameworks that I use to bring my entire self to work so that I can play to my strengths despite social norms.
In this chat, I want you to walk away with:
- A framework to list your strengths and perform from a place of abundance to find success.
- How to take yourself from mediocrity to a stage where they cannot ignore you.
- How to get comfortable with your vulnerabilities to break the glass ceiling and achieve greatness.
