Hey there, welcome to the 23rd issue hand-crafted to you with love by yours truly. I just finished reading an incredible book called “The Motive” and it brought back to me these 3 stories, besides opening my eyes to ways I’m currently failing without even noticing.
Writing about these stories is a humbling experience and a necessary one. I bring them to you with an open heart and a heaviness in my chest in the hopes that this will be a public commitment to do better and an invitation for people to pull me back from reward-centered thinking (learn what that is in the text 😉). I understand I can share them and not excessively fear losing my job or others judging me because I’m privileged in so many ways. So I hope this privilege is used for good and:
- It helps you avoid accepting a job you don’t want to do. One that you don’t value;
- It helps you avoid going through the same failures I went;
- It serves as a conversation starter to support your leader to be more responsibility-centered and less reward-centered.
- It prevents me from getting blind-sided by these thoughts and feelings again.
Let me know if it did 🤘🏾
