Once there used to be high morals and ethics in the workplace and the expectations of your personal life were private and non-inclusive.
The truth is there is should be no difference between our inner personal work and those of our professional success – – our whole self is what we should bring to work and what we should bring home- if you want to be successful in the long run the best practice is the simplest truth: wherever you go, go with all your heart.
If you bring your whole self to work and you lead from your heart you will be more likely to be the person who cares more, shares more, understands more, says more, feels more, hears more and is liked more.
Bringing your whole heart and continuously developing your personal mastery is just as important as leadership growth and leadership growth is just as important as organizational growth- all of it matters–all of it is interrelated.
Sheryl Sandberg the Chief Operating Officer of Facebook says. “I believe in bringing your whole self to work. We are who we are. When you try to have this division between your personal self and professional self, what you really are is stiff… That doesn’t mean people have to tell me everything about their personal lives. But I’m pretty sharing of mine.” (New Yorker July 11 2011)
The person who leads from the heart, and who brings their whole self to work, is more likely to feel more comfortable with responsibilities, is more likely be more authentic and transparent.
Lead From Within: Are you bringing your whole heart and self to your professional and personal life? Are you standing with unconditional commitment and unequivocal courage to your truest self?
To lead from within is know the simplest most profound truth: If you bring your heart, you bring your best self.
