Ditch the Mask and Be Authentic at Work

Halloween is right around the corner, and it’s the one day a year when it’s perfectly acceptable to dress up like someone else and pretend to be a nurse, fireman, or political figure.

Throughout the years, we have all had more clients than we can count who struggle with paralyzing procrastination…avoiding an email, putting off a phone call, or delaying a decision.
