For many, scrolling through social media feeds has become a daily ritual. This also means that many people are spending less time reflecting, looking inward, and figuring out what motivates them and makes them truly happy.

In today’s episode, I’m joined again by my good friend Shelle Vernon to share some resources and best practices to help you know yourself and rediscover the power of self-reflection.

You’ll hear our best tips on dealing with “energy vampires” and why we believe assessments like Kolbe and PRINT are incredibly valuable. We’ll also talk about the power of getting to know your team on a deeper level to get the most out of their abilities while keeping yourself and your team engaged and motivated.
