Workplace Diet: Was Blind But Now I See (Because I Asked for Input)

Posted by David Grossman on Mon,Nov 06, 2017

We all have them. Blind spots. Things that are unknown to us yet obvious to others; an area of our leadership vision we’re not able to see.

Chances are most of us have friends who play the “truth teller” role with us. At work, that’s less likely the case. Very few of us are surrounded by people who tell us the truth no matter how painful the message might be. More likely, our peers, staff and sometimes even bosses shy away from having tough conversations.

New eBook: Respectful Authenticity—Bringing Your Best to Work and Bringing Out the Best in Others

Posted by David Grossman on Mon,May 08, 2017

In today’s era of leadership in a fast-paced business environment, respectful authenticity has never been more important, especially as high-profile business and ethics scandals fill the news.

While the concept of authenticity has been around for a long time, I’ve added the word respectful to help distinguish it as a powerful tool in the workplace, and to eliminate the downsides that can come with using authenticity as an excuse to be painfully blunt, rude or closed off to different points of view. At its core, respectful authenticity is about being true to yourself and acting in ways that are consistent with your values. In this eBook, I’ll address how to be more authentic, and will share some proven tools to help others get to know you better. You’ll notice my thoughts in this eBook are a little more personal than you might typically read.
