Like the classic trope of angel versus devil bickering on your shoulders, we all have two voices that compete to be heard. One voice may be public, dominant, and assertive at times; the other, more private, guarded, and intuitive. This duality is often deeply rooted in one’s unwillingness to disclose personal experiences for fear of judgment.
At what point does one make a conscious decision to resist opportunities for new development? Language, human development, strategic capabilities, behavior and our thinking are all informed through the very experiences we encounter. By resisting, declining, or refusing to show up; we begin to limit our potential for growth, contribution and impact.
