Kelly Hartman and Aoife O’Brien speak about what it means to really be yourself at work. We talk about being honest, being bold, and being who you are. Kelly shares some tips on how to show up as your truly authentic self by being around people who bring out the best in you. Always create a judgement-free zone, accept that you’re not going to be liked by everyone, but that this gives you more time to connect with people you truly connect with. There’s no one-size-fits-all approach. Be self-aware about your needs, and find the courage to voice those needs.
