Leslie August - End Work Place Bullying
Manage episode 283252213 series 1299385
While Leslie August is on a mission with her new business to eradicate workplace bullying, it occurred to her that how she got there and the shift she experienced would likely be of most interest for people to hear. In a nutshell, her shift was a function of a change in identity and role within her family of origin and life. Compound the experience with the changing COVID-19 era we are experiencing and you may find solace and understanding for something you are experiencing or have in your own life.
Externally, she went from the Acting CEO, part-owner and director of a successful niche international trade and insurance business where she had been for 23 years, to an entrepreneur in a totally different industry. Venturing from financial security and abundance to financial insecurity and lean times. But internally the shift was from supporter/facilitator to truthteller/workplace advocate. Leslie broke the unspoken family agreement that we are loyal to each other under any and all circumstances; even if it hurts outsiders. That is, our first loyalty and obligation is to other family members.
There is a painful and difficult story that weaves through the shift and decision to sacrifice that security which we can get into if it makes sense.
