The phrase “bring your whole self to work” has perhaps been overused over the past few years across management meetings, networking events, and even LinkedIn. The phrase may be a tired one, but the notion is still quite fresh and perfectly challenges the familiar stereotype of us needing to have a certain professional “persona” at work. In fact, the “whole self” that we so often leave behind in our homes is the part of us that makes us unique and remarkable. And the part of us that could perhaps make us a better professional and a better learner.
