What do you bring to the table?
Whether you work in the corporate, education, or community sectors, I invite you to think about what you bring to the table.
Understanding “self” is the first step. What this means is that you are clear about how you “turn up” for yourself and others. It also involves consideration of the language you use and how you deliver messages so that you are respectful and free of bias. Even more than that, understanding yourself challenges you to know your “why”. What are your motivations and actions? How do they help others to personally and professionally grow to be the best versions of themselves at any one time? We have all worked with people who advocate a message that they do not exemplify themselves.
Take the time to explore your values and triggers. What mechanisms do you have in place to be responsive to challenges rather than reactive? What story do you tell yourself? How do you filter through information so that you are drawing on facts and not emotions? Understanding who you are and being respectful of others, that is, honouring the dignity of the human person, is one of the gifts that you can offer to those who cross your path. So, I ask you what do you bring to the table?
