In this honest, humorous, and thought-provoking talk at TEDxBerkeley, entitled “Bring Your Whole Self to Work,” Mike discusses how it takes courage 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 teams and organizations, it takes real commitment and intention to create environments that allow people to feel safe 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).
