Divided We Fall
Shout out to my homie Brian Shea for sharing this video on Facebook
The birth of my first child has me thinking about all kinds of stuff, including how I show up in this world.
Spending time with my son,Emerson, during the first month of his life has me thinking about my body of work and spending the most time with him as possible. If I’m not with him, where do I want to be spending my time?
There is something about the workplace that really intrigues me. Having worked 8 years as an operations manager I realized that I am a man of the people and more concerned about getting things done, than about titles. More concerned about who you really are than, who you think you have to be.
I really want people to be successful while being themselves. None of this divided life stuff we see in the video above.
I Didn’t Always Bring It!
I spent years fighting against bringing my whole self to work. When I decided to take another stance, “I am that I am.” or in my vernacular, “You gotta love me or leave me alone,” things began to change and I began to get the kind of assignments that aligned with who I am.
It’s after I became clear on aligning who I am outside of work with who I am inside of work that I had the opportunity to help create a peer empowerment team and become a brand ambassador for Intel.
How are you currently showing up at work? Are you living the divided life? Don’t know how to stop? We should chat.
There is something brewing over here in the space of living an undivided life at work; being able to have more impact by being more of who you already are. Stay tuned party people.
