What does it mean to be fully human? This is a question I encourage every person listening to the show to ponder. Over the years, I've noticed that the human element of business & leadership gets lost. We get really focused on the results, the outcomes, the strategy, the revenue that we often forget about the people behind those results. I find this usually happens because it can be easier to focus on things we feel like we can control. When we do not have the courage to see ourselves & others as fully human, we create toxic workplaces and reinforce the trauma & stories. What if we could see that person who drives you crazy as human? What if you were able to see that difficult person on your team/in your life as fully human?
