Authenticity At Work

Why Authenticity at Work Is Crucial to Professional Success

Otherness and authenticity at work

Authenticity at work is a right

  • When we’re forced to separate the different aspects of our lives, we don’t deliver our best work.
  • Without authenticity, the personal brand we build for ourselves isn’t true to who we are, thus rendering us cookie-cutter cogs in the machine instead of individuals with unique skillsets.
  • A lack of freedom to be our authentic selves means we don’t have a chance to identify, develop, and use our strengths, and our employers are left in the dark, too.
  • The more authentic we are, the more we can connect with our clients or customers.
  • Through authenticity, we can ensure that our careers are better aligned with our identities and interests.
