Bring Your Whole Self to Work: How Vulnerability Unlocks Creativity, Connection, and Performance

By Mike Robbins
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." But as Mike Robbins explains, we can work better, lead better, and be more engaged and fulfilled if--instead of trying to hide who we are--we show up fully and authentically.Mike, a sought-after motivational speaker and business consultant, has spent more than 15 years researching, writing, and speaking about essential human experiences and high performance in the workplace. His clients have ranged from Google to Citibank, from the U.S. Department of Labor to the San Francisco Giants. From small start-ups in Silicon Valley to family-owned businesses in the Midwest. From what he's seen and studied over the years, Mike believes that for us to thrive professionally, we must be willing to bring our whole selves to the work that we do.Bringing our whole selves to work means 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 book, Mike outlines five principles we can use to approach our own work in this 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."This book will offer you insights, ideas, and tools to inspire you to bring all of who you are to the work that you do--regardless of where you work, what kind of work you do, and with whom you do it. And, if you're an owner, leader, or just someone who wants to have influence on those around you--this book will also give you specific techniques for how to build or enhance your team's culture in such a way that encourages others to bring all of who they are to work.
