The Disruption of Authenticity (Public Talk)

5.My-Talks_The-Disruption-of-Authenticity_banner.png

Everyone's talking about the importance of being your authentic self. Have you tried it? How do people, even those who recommended it, respond when you're actually being your "authentic self"?

Have You Tried Being Authentic?

Fact: change is disruptive even when it's positive. If you've tried to quit smoking, to eat healthier or to start leaving work on time, you know that it takes a lot of energy; and that's within yourself. When you start "being you", you introduce change in other people's worlds. Change that they didn't choose and, therefore, weren't prepared for. Even if they just said, "you have to be true to yourself", the unspoken fine print is "as long as it doesn't affect me".

So what am I supposed to do, then!

You see, while you can never make everyone happy, you can decide how you will respond. I'll share insights on how to:

  • Be Authentic AND Comfortable knowing not everyone will like it.

  • Bring those around you along for the ride. Show them it's a Good Thing.

  • Release hurt, resentment, 'control', when they Can't Embrace the Authentic You.

What am I talking about? My blog on this is just the tip of the iceberg. Book this talk to find out!

 

"Authenticity". A simple scenario you can relate to.

Crystal-Marie S

(2016-Aug-18) On paper, my career began in 2001, spans Successiory (2009), my MBA from the Schulich School of Business (2010), two countries and several industries, including business strategy, social media consulting, environmental and engineering consulting, higher education and more (see LinkedIn). 

In 2015, I was nominated for Canadian Association of Marketing Professionals (CAMP) Awards,Entrepreneur of the Year and became an Amazon.ca bestseller on August 9th 2015. I spoke at 12 events in 2015 alone, including several GroYourBiz Advisory Boards, Bank of Montreal (paid), Iler Campbell’s Tools Conference and Toronto Public Libraries’ Small Business (sometimes paid) series. I think I love speaking!

On a personal note, I'm an MBA, entrepreneur, millennial, dancer, author and so much more yet, like you, I don't fit the stereotypes. After years of workaholism and the health and relationship losses that go with that lifestyle, I've stopped 'paying lip service' to terms like authenticity, self care and sustainability. My health scare pushed me into living them. Here's hoping I can inspire you to live and work better without learning the hard way. Welcome. Still curious? More here... www.successiory.ca/crystal-marie
