In today's work environment, the lines between our professional and personal lives are blurred more than ever before. Whatever is happening to us outside of our workplace – whether stressful, painful, or joyful – follows us into work as well. We may think we have to keep these realities under wraps and act as if we have it all together. However, we can work better, lead successfully, and be more engaged and inspiring if – instead of trying to hide who we are – we show up fully and authentically.I'm Mike Robbins, a speaker and executive coach, and your instructor for this course. I've spent more than 20 years researching, writing, and speaking about leadership, teamwork, and high-performance. My clients have ranged from Google to Citibank, from the US Department of labor to the San Francisco Giants. From small startups in Silicon Valley to family-owned businesses in the Midwest. From what I've seen and studied over the past two decades, I believe that for us to thrive as leaders and to have the kind of impact we truly want to have on others, it's essential to lead with authenticity.Authentic leadership is about acknowledging that we're all vulnerable, imperfect human beings doing the best we can. It means having the courage to take risks, speak up, have compassion, ask for help, connect with others in a genuine way, and allow ourselves to be truly seen.In this course, I outline the five key principles from my book, Bring Your Whole Self to Work, that we can use to approach our own work in the spirit of openness and humanity, and to help the people we work with feel safe enough to do the same, so that the teams and organizations we're a part of can truly succeed.In this course, you will:Identify what authenticity truly is and why it's so important in building trustDiscover the importance of psychological safety and how to create it for your teamExpand your ability to operate with authenticityRecognize the essential difference between recognition and appreciation (and why appreciation drives higher performance)Tap into appreciation as a fuel for productivity, loyalty, and engagementEnhance your emotional intelligence in order to connect more deeply with your teamFoster a growth mindset to help your team embrace change and learningCreate a championship team by focusing on team culture and dynamicI encourage you to complete the activities and action steps in this course to put the ideas you're learning into practice immediately.
