Invest in TENSION: Investing in the tension between our authentic and expected selves
Most of us have something profound in common – there’s a deep, and often unexamined, tension between who each one of us is authentically and who we are expected to be. What if we began to examine this tension and dialogued collectively about these expectations so that each of us can embrace our truest self, and help each other center ourselves in authenticity?
