A colleague was telling me a while back about a dysfunctional organization they were in and how it made them feel…well, dysfunctional.
I told them:
Never let the organization define you! You are who you are.
Honestly, I could see how this situation wore on them.
Then we met up again, and it was like they were a new person.
I asked them what happened and they said how they made a change in their life and sure enough in a healthy setting and culture, they felt great again!
It’s incredible the negative impact that a bad organizational culture can have on its people.
But it’s up to you to find the right place for you, so you can be who you are! 😉
