Growth isn’t always linear

One standout topic from this episode is that of the direction of growth, and letting go of the preconceived idea that growth is something that’s purely linear. When we start to understand that growth can be horizontal, vertical, and even diagonal, we start to recognize what resonates for each individual in terms of what they’re trying to achieve both professionally, and personally (as the two truly go hand in hand). On that note, the conversation also served as a reminder that personal growth is one of the best drivers of engagement. When you’re committed to your personal mission, along with that of your organization, you’re set to be a more positive contributor. And what’s not to love about that?
