Q: Your family knows your job title, but do they know what you accomplish with your genius?
So, how's work?" It's a question we may have heard many times over the past few days. With the holidays coming soon, answering questions about our work might be common for a while.
Why do we fall into stock answers that don't really tell the stories of our work lives? After all, aren't family members included as our stakeholders? Stakeholders don't have to work with us; they're just folks who affect and are affected by our work.
Your non-work stakeholders such as family and friends can learn a great deal by knowing the source of your professional purpose. In the coming holidays we'll have opportunities to expand our personal narratives with others. We can even seek to move past mere job titles and explore the passion and purpose of our careers.
