Welcome to 2022- positivity is trendy, motivational quotes plaster coffee shop walls and the “self-help” and “leadership” sections of bookstores have become one.
This may be the norm, but it’s not productive for society.
In our messy world, reducing complex human behavior and leadership to clichés and black & white thinking can be both dangerous and ineffective.
True leadership requires authenticity- acting in accordance with one’s true self. A leader who is worried about being liked will not make decisions in the best interest of those they lead and/or risk burnout.
On today’s episode we discuss:
- Why you shouldn’t worry about being liked
- The evolutionary & psychological origins of “likeability”
- What we can do to work through the likeability obstacle
- How wanting to to be liked leads to burnout & other disastrous outcomes
Part of developing and sharing your authentic self comes from knowing how to communicate effectively. Join The Conscious Coaching Challenge: 30 Days of communication material, challenges, access to our team, weekly Zoom Q&A’s and giveaways! Starting SOON!
