It’s important to understand who you are before getting to the why. Some of us are more logical and task oriented. Others of us focus on our emotions, our environment, and the behavior of others to guide our success. Melody Wilding suggests these “Sensitive Strivers” can anticipate the needs of the team because they are aware of how others are feeling. This empathy can also preclude them from making decisions because they are worried about what others will think. Melody is the author of Trust Yourself: Stop Overthinking and Channel Your Emotions for Success at Work and draws on decades of research and client work to examine the intersection of sensitivity and achievement in the workplace. She and Kevin discuss the journey of professional and personal development starting at self-awareness and moving to self-growth.
In this episode, Melody talks about:
- Asking permission.
- Building boundaries.
- Emotions as a competitive advantage.
- Fear vs. intuition.
