Mike Robbins is the author of four books, Focus on the Good Stuff, Be Yourself, Everyone Else is Already Taken, and Nothing Changes Until You Do, which have been translated into 14 different languages, and his latest, Bring Your Whole Self to Work. He’s a thought-leader and sought-after speaker who has spent the past 17 years researching and speaking about essential human experiences in the workplace. His work focuses on emotional intelligence, leadership, and teamwork…and specifically the importance of authenticity, appreciation, and vulnerability at work and in life.

In this honest, humorous, and thought-provoking talk at TEDxBerkeley, entitled “Bring Your Whole Self to Work,” Mike discusses how it takes courage by us as individuals to show up and bring all of who we are to the work that we do. It’s essential to embrace vulnerability and to let go of our attachment to what other people think about us. For organizations, it also takes courage to create environments that allow people to feel safe and secure enough to bring their whole selves to work. The two most important cultural elements for this to occur are 1) a high level of healthy expectation (expecting excellence) and 2) a high level of nurturance (caring about people).
