Imagine a world where we’re successful WHILE being authentically human? We can live a life that is thoughtful, empathetic, and a catalyst for organizing greater, more impactful realities that didn’t previously exist. We can ALSO create freedom and happiness, in whatever form that looks like for you, the spoils of your endeavors, to be enjoyed. Success.
Last month, we touched on what it takes to be a leader – the digging deep, getting out of our own way, behind the scenes hard parts many don’t see. This month, I invite you to soften into the human-ness of being the leader that both inspires and supports your people. It takes being vulnerable, creating a safe space for others to be heard and celebrated, and correcting course as needed, real time. Being transparent and open with our employees positively impacts performance and satisfaction, while creating stronger relationships. It begins with each of us actively leading by example. A change as simple as choosing to no longer beat ourselves up for what went wrong and instead allow in the grace to fail forward better, can have a transformative effect on how your team shows up and engages with each other and your customers (think more creativity and collaboration, less ego driven recognition).
Check out reads such as Radical Candor by Kim Payne or Deepak Chopra’s Soul of Leadership which talk simply, and powerfully on seeing and integrating our inherent human-ness (and those around us) as we build and lead more fulfilled and impactful organizations, communities and lives. In the meantime – this month’s newsletter celebrates those leaders that simultaneously rock success, authenticity and kindness. You’re loved by those around you and make it enjoyable to grow alongside this journey with you! For our greater community - check out best practices and resources for year-end below. And hit us up if there’s anything we can do for you.

Workplace Compliant Training
Speaking of safer and inclusive work environments, now is a good time to ensure compliance with sexual harassment training requirements for your company and employees.
In California employers must provide: (1) at least two hours of sexual harassment prevention training to all supervisory employees; and (2) at least one hour of sexual harassment prevention training to all non-supervisory employees. The training must be provided once every two years.
Although not required, we also encourage Contractors that are a part of your team to take this training. A resource we like is EasyLlama.
