“For a manager, or for anyone in a role with a lot of responsibility, self-care is critical to ensure that you can be the best you can be first.” – Eileen Springer
Eileen also discusses the importance of courage in the workplace. For managers, this means having difficult conversations with employees, asking them what their goals are, and finding solutions that would be mutually beneficial for the employee and the company. And for the employees, this means having to manage up, not waiting for your efforts to be recognized, and identifying the actions that can be taken to initiate these conversations with sponsors, peers, managers, and mentors.
