This is a great subject for Be You Consultancy & Coaching as we pride ourselves on being authentic and empowering all the individuals, we work with to be the best version of themselves at all times!
Why is the world talking about everyone being authentic?
Finally, the working world is getting their head round how to get the best out of each individual and that is to enable and empower them to bring themselves to work.
Well, think about it this way, how often have you had to ‘pretend’ to be someone else when at work? I know for me being a HR professional it was:
But who I am is:
How can this work for your business?
What if employees can’t bring themselves to work?
It can create pressure and sometimes stress, increased absence levels but most importantly it can make us unhappy and not fulfilled.
Think about the amount of time and skill / focus it takes for individuals to not be themselves but to focus on the person that they think they should be. How much energy, concentration and effort must that take to be constantly checking in with themselves?
What if, as a business owner you can refocus that energy, concentration and effort to people doing their roles. How much more productive do you think they could be?
What if they bring themselves to work and that isn’t right for our business?
With everything in life there has to be a limit, you can still have:
How do you establish that change?
It all works on communication, as with everything in life.
Talk to your staff, explain the reasons behind the change but also start being authentic too - bring the real you to work! This will help your staff to engage with you, trust you, become more engaged with the business and wanting your business to succeed .
This is something that both you and your team will need to work at but it will bring change to your business and increase productivity! So why would you not want to do this?
