Authenticity in the Workplace

Although his dad tried to get him to switch, legendary guitarist Jimi Hendrix strummed his guitar with his left hand. He was able to play the other way around, though – and ate and wrote with his right hand. He famously played a right-handed Fender Stratocaster flipped over and restrung. If his dad had successfully convinced him to play traditionally, would the world have ever known him? Not sure. How many leaders try to get their people to be something they aren’t? Often their goal is to “coach” people to be more like them. Rock stars are authentic. If you are trying to “mold” someone in a way that isn’t natural to them, you won’t get what you are looking for. You will probably motivate the person to quit your band. #Truecollaboration#authenticity#leadership#talent#BandingPeopleTogether
