Leadership: Encouraging others to be themselves!

Has a customer service mind-set permeated our everyday thinking?  

Presentations, speeches & interaction in political arenas, corporate meetings, job interviews, dating situations etc., seem to find us desperately trying to work out and deliver what others want to hear.

Peter Bregman’s refreshing article in Harvard Business Review lends credence to this point of view!

Turning to quick-fixes promised by the banal messages of money makers rather than our inner voice/instinct. 

I love the simplicity of Dory Previn's message that makes claim to neither doctrine nor label:  More...
