Why People Pleasing Will Only Hold Your Team Back

Why People Pleasing Will Only Hold Your Team Back

As a former people pleaser, I spent many years making (or should I say trying to make) my bosses and teams happy.

If anything, it’s the very thing that keeps me and everyone else from moving forward. 

It’s Time to Rethink Your Self-Worth

Even if you’re not aware of it, there’s a good chance you’ve learned to measure your value based on outside factors like your educational, professional, or even financial achievements. But the truth of the matter is, your real value is defined by what YOU think, feel, and believe about yourself…not what degree you have, the title in your email signature, or whether your boss thinks you deserve that promotion.
