TED Talk: Bring your whole self to work

How well do you know your co-workers? Really know them. Sure, we make small talk in the office and those 5 minute before Zoom meetings, but chances are we keep even our personal conversations at work at a surface level.

The reality is, many of us hold back a big part of what makes us human and vulnerable in order to be seen as professional, competent, and successful. We have an image to uphold at work, and rarely let the lines blur between our "real selves" and "work persona". 

But what if we decided to reveal more of who we are at work? What would be possible? How would our workplaces be different? What would be the impact on the people we work with and lead?

In this 12-minute Ted Talk, Mike Robbins challenges us all to bring our whole, complete being to work. Through authenticity, we can find fulfillment.
