Be Yourself

Check out this thought-provoking post by our friend Felix!

Be yourself. That's all we ask. Everything else will take care of itself.

We are branded continuously by our actions. If we are conscious of this, as Goffman asserts, and we act to censor ourselves, then we are continuously branding ourselves.

It sounds like a lot of effort and it is if one is trying to project something other than one's essence. Some are better at this than others. We call these people bullshit artists.

When two or more people have synergy, this overhead, this self-censorship, is less necessary, possibly unnecessary.

When we are ourselves, when we act with integrity, when we are transparent, the branding effort, the development of our reputation, is more natural, and with others, the forming and storming and norming of the team flows.

This is the stuff of synergy. Synergy and flow at base, in brief, is begot by character.
