At Home, We’re Human. At Work, We’re Not. That’s a Problem.

human linkedin 20150701Yesterday I published a post on LinkedIn titled “At Home, We’re Human. At Work, We’re Not. That’s a Problem.”

The post is about how we try to be superhuman at work. We pretend we don’t have weaknesses. We don’t behave or act like we do at home, when we’re most human.

I know why people behave as muted versions of themselves at work. It makes sense. My argument is the pendulum has swung too far. We’re too robotic at work. It has become a competitive advantage simply to talk and speak like a human being.

I hope you take a minute to read the post. I had fun writing it. I have fun writing all of these posts. I feel like writing has made me more aware, both of myself and the word around me. Writing makes me think more about my experiences, and how any lessons I learn from those experiences might help other people.

Thanks for stopping by. I really appreciate it.
