My client, a leader in a worldwide corporation, is grappling with authenticity.
At issue: resistance to a specific change. But it’s not the first; he’s felt the need to adjust himself many times over the years due to feedback from colleagues and peers.
“Will I still be me if I act as others tell me?” he asks. “How far can I go and still be an authentic me?”
Maybe you’re crunching through how to stay true to yourself while adapting to the avalanche of change our world is in.
Perhaps you’ve received surprising feedback as you’ve shifted to online work, which puts a different pressure on your way of communicating, negotiating, and connecting with your business partners.
Maybe, like my client, you’re feeling that same resistance to change. You fear you might be losing yourself in the required, constant adjustments.
