I like the reminder from this post about how important it is to have people bring their whole self to work. While one might look at this post and conclude that it provides a reason not to perform the job – I would offer a challenge to look at this another way. It takes energy for a person to hide things and ‘pretend’. By allowing for some transparency with your leader it frees up mental energy to focus on the work, and allows for some grace from a leader when needed. I like this post.
