Image and Authenticity: Are Image-Conscious People Authentic?

It’s a controversial question. I imagine in some cases, women in particular reading this may be protesting at the very suggestion. Maybe a better question is “What’s the opposite of authentic?” Is it artifice? Superficiality? Maybe. And if that’s the case, is focusing on image a small part of that?  I admit: I am skeptical…

The Power Poses-Authenticity Connection

What’s the Power Poses-Authenticity Connection? By now, Amy Cuddy’s research and TED talk are well known among many business people. What interests me is the connection between using power poses and how that physical action allows us to be more ourselves.  Cuddy captured the idea perfectly when speaking to youth at a shelter, as reported…

Knowing Yourself – The Start of Your Success Journey

I believe that success starts with knowing yourself–and defining your version of the word.  When we begin tapping into our authentic selves, we start to uncover what is unique to us. We begin to notice where we have deviated or fallen away from the path that is of our own design. And while perhaps different…

Uncovering Expectations, Not Just Managing Expectations

It seems everyone talks about managing expectations but it’s just as important to do the work of uncovering them. I say “uncovering” because sometimes they can be buried. Even from the people who have them. And ourselves. Too often, service providers will assume what the expectations are and cater to those assumptions. In fairness, sometimes…

Giving Others a Vote of Confidence

Taking the time to let those in your professional network know that you support them is an important but not urgent activity.  An easy way to do this is to endorse them on LinkedIn. Endorsements are those opportunities you see to “check off” that a connection knows her stuff.  As opposed to recommendations, which are another…

Find Your Pillars

Self-discovery is a necessity for authenticity. And it never ends. But there’s nothing urgent about it, so making time to find out all that we believe in can be challenging. While some people are highly conscious of their beliefs–whether limiting, expansive, definitive, etc.–I suspect that they haven’t tapped into all of them. My take is there’s…

I’ve focused on the importance of fun before but haven’t talked much about how spending time defining success is a valuable activity. In my case, I’m beginning to…
