Fearless Choices, Designing to Strengths, and Don’t Complain

One of our core principles is fearlessness — that fear is what is holding us back from greatness. We were excited to learn about 11 Women Executives on The Greatest Risk They Ever Took in Fast Company this week. We hope you are inspired to look at risk differently!

We also found a great article on Designing to Your Strengths from strategy+business, with a real-life example of how pushing on true weaknesses is often a losing proposition. Instead, working on your strengths and how to make them a competitive advantage can win gold medals.

And finally, from HBR, what to do when you feel like complaining — Do This Instead.  As we tell our clients, venting doesn’t really help in the long run, although we think it feels good in the moment.
