  • family member of mine sent me a message in Said I should picture all if you naked and that'll get me through my tool.

  • That's such a scary thought.

  • I'm not gonna even shy.

  • Okay?

  • Do you agree?

  • My name is Jason, and I do.

  • And for the past 27 years, I have worked in some off the largest Corporates and in various roles.

  • My experience has taught me that people are so much more than the jobs they do.

  • People like Adam, who I met many years ago.

  • At the time Adam was a print controller.

  • I received daily communication from Adam.

  • At one time.

  • I even thought Adam was a system sending automated responses.

  • But actually Adam was a minister in his church.

  • One day, Adam applied to be an innovation champion.

  • He waas by far one of the best ideation facilitators we had ever seen.

  • And why?

  • Because he was a respected member of his community.

  • On the weekends, he provided marriage counseling and ran youth meet ups.

  • Now, if you can facilitate a marriage conversation, you can navigate difficult and complex corporate issues.

  • Those of you that I married You know what I'm talking about?

  • someone else I met very recently was Luke.

  • Look grew up in an orphanage, graduated top off his engineering clothes.

  • He was appointed as a graduate, young professional in the investment banking division and went on to win a competition.

  • We had that competed with global frantic companies.

  • Why?

  • Because Luke was what we refer to as a closet entrepreneur born to be an entrepreneur but trapped by the shackles off corporate needing to fulfill a role that he was told would be the perfect job and career part for him.

  • Now, if people like Luke and Adam as so much more than the jobs they do, then we as leaders, have a responsibility to see past job titles, to see past job roles and recognize and respect the uniqueness off every individual.

  • We need to lift them up and not break them down and break them.

  • We do time and time again.

  • I remember one afternoon J.

  • My husband drove into Fitch me from outside our office park.

  • I was sobbing uncontrollably, almost hysterical.

  • I jumped into the call.

  • We drove by to a near a coffee shop.

  • I sat down so that I could gather my thoughts.

  • You see, I did not want to go home crying.

  • I did not want my kids to see me crying.

  • After all, I'm the strong corporate professional.

  • Just a few minutes earlier, I was told that I would no longer be required to fulfill a role that I had been playing for the past few years.

  • Not just any role, a role that I was extremely passionate about, a role that I loved.

  • I woke up in the morning.

  • I drove to work, excited a role that helped me change people's lives.

  • But why couldn't my leaders see that?

  • Why couldn't they see my passion?

  • Why couldn't they appreciate the role that I played in that moment?

  • I knew I had to leave the organization.

  • After all, I made a promise to myself a long time ago that if a job no longer aligned to my value system or my purpose, I would leave and I had done it a couple times before.

  • But like with all corporate, you've got to stick around these papers to sign these people to meet.

  • There's exit interviews, and in one of those meetings I boxed my executive.

  • Is there something about me that you don't like.

  • And her answer was perfect exactly what I wanted to hear.

  • But was it really?

  • And in that moment I realized it does not matter.

  • It does not matter whether she likes me.

  • It does not matter whether she thinks I'm brilliant.

  • It does not matter whether she considers me a threat.

  • It does not matter what she thinks off me.

  • Because you should never define yourself through someone else's.

  • Linds.

  • As a leader, she had a responsibility to see me for who I waas to see the uniqueness I had in me to see the value that I added to the organization.

  • I knew in that moment and moments before that I was so much more than the job I did.

  • I knew that I am bigger than just a title on a business card.

  • I'm a mum.

  • I'm a daughter.

  • I'm a sister.

  • I'm a friend.

  • I'm a mental.

  • So why would this affect me so deeply?

  • Because it was more than just a job.

  • I know it's extremely corny, so forgive me, but I love this line from a spider man movie.

  • Okay.

  • When my son was young, he took us to watch all of the Spiderman movies.

  • So I've heard this line so many times.

  • But it's when uncle been turns to Spider Man and says, With great power comes great responsibility.

  • Leaders of organizations.

  • You have power over those individuals that report to you, but you also have a responsibility.

  • You have a responsibility to make sure that they live the best life, and they become so much more than the jobs they do.

  • You have a responsibility to nurture and grow them and not break them down.

  • What you do is more important than what you say.

  • You have to harness the power off the individual and make sure that you get the most out of them in the world.

  • We now do.

  • We see firsthand how corporate politics, victimization, nepotism breaks, the spirit of individuals.

  • We help individuals that have lost their jobs and we give them entrepreneurship skills.

  • But first we have to live.

  • They spirit because their sense off being broken and demotivated has actually got nothing to do with losing their jobs.

  • It's got everything to do with losing themselves into a job.

  • As the years go by, they have forgotten who they are.

  • Their identity becomes so fused with the job that they doing the title on a business card that amount on your paycheck at the end of the month.

  • They forget it's a false sense off power that they think they have by having this job and when it's all taken away, they left with this empty shell.

  • Who am I?

  • Who am I to my family now that I don't have a job, who am I to my colleagues that I no longer reporting to me?

  • And in those moments we see the despair in them because before they can embrace this new skill, they first have to find themselves and remember their passion.

  • Remember who they are now leaders off leaders.

  • You know who you are.

  • I'm not gonna point you out.

  • You have a responsibility to hold your leaders accountable and not just hold them accountable for bottom line results.

  • You've got to hold them accountable for the most important role.

  • They have to play and debts the ability to lead to really lead to lift individuals up.

  • Stop turning a blind eye to the mess exodus that's happening around you.

  • Have you ever stopped to ask why I individuals leaving you don't leave an organization.

  • You join an organization, you leave a person so it's very important to recognize when your leaders are not doing the jobs they were meant to do.

  • If you are an individual that's on the other side of this emotional roller coaster, please stop.

  • Do something about it.

  • I've met some amazing individuals through this process and something common that comes through.

  • The individuals that are truly happy with who they are have found a creative outlet.

  • They have found an outlet where they can actually be so much more, even if it's not in their jobs.

  • If it's on weekends like Adam did, until he found a way to do it at work, all embrace new opportunities, like looked it.

  • It only took one idea to get him to the top three, and if all else feels then take the plunge like I did.

  • I get to love my best life every day.

  • I get to wake up again and be happy with what I'm doing.

  • And yes, it's never easy taking a plunge, But it's important for your soul.

  • It's important to know that life is far too short to be someone else's definition off who you should be.

  • And the final message I want to leave you with is you are so much more than the job you do.

  • Thank you.

family member of mine sent me a message in Said I should picture all if you naked and that'll get me through my tool.
