As a leader, have you ever tried to fit in and emulate behavior that wasn’t innately you?
It doesn’t work!
Your team will find you disingenuous which leads to a loss of trust.
After interviewing 18 leaders for my book, The Seismic Shift in Leadership: How to Thrive in a New Era of Connection, I found that high performing leaders do the following things to connect with themselves:
1. They Own their Story
2. They Own their Communication
3. They Give up Perfection
I was honored to be a guest on Ruth Gotian’s podcast, The Mentor Project, where we deconstructed Leadership Connection.

Do nice guys finish last? According to research by Dr. Michelle Johnston, author of The Seismic Shift in Leadership, the answer is no. Having a deep sense of connection with yourself and those around you can make you an effective leader.
