The Myth of Authenticity

Jun 4, 2021 | 35m

Does being authentic really mean baring it all in the workplace? Does it mean you can unleash your temper on your colleagues or show up in pajamas because that’s how your “authentic self” was feeling that day? Has the word taken on a life of its own, far removed from the reality of the workplace? So, instead of simply downing the Corporate Kool-Aid, Sue Stephens, and Pratap Kaul join Andrea to lead the charge in bursting the shiny bubble of “authenticity” by taking a good hard look at how it’s been paraded as an excuse for unprofessionalism, and how to interpret the word wisely.

Gain Actionable Insights Into:

  • Why being authenticity isn’t the same as bringing your “whole self” to work
  • The paradox of authenticity – being true to ourselves, but only if it fits in with the company’s values
  • Understanding how being authentic varies in different cultures
