Case Study In Development
The question to answer isn't, “Have I made a place where people have the freedom to express themselves?” Instead we have to ask, “Have I made a place where everyone has the safety to exist?”
I think we can forget what we are capable of and what we deserve when we’re sad. We end up dodging failure instead of reaching for radical success.
But what if we were more okay accepting imperfect, in-progress, new things? Perhaps imposter syndrome would be less pervasive and there’d be less shame.
True vulnerability is a powerful tool for developing trust. It represents strength and security in who you are and what you bring to your work.
Perpetual motion is good, but not if it's directionless. Methodical decision-making is also good, but not if it means stagnation. We are told to dream big, but rarely are we told to do small.
That's what she said.
