MAY 2021 – PRESIDENT’S MESSAGE

Charlie Teixeira

Happy May, PWN members:

Authenticity is what’s on my mind.

Am I showing up my authentic self, in professional settings?
Am I showing up my fully authentic self?
What “parts” of us may we feel uncomfortable sharing?
What are we fearful of?

These questions may (or may not) bring up some emotions for you. I do know, however, that vulnerability invariably leads to deeper connectivity with others. And on a business level, greater connectivity can lead to business. More importantly, when we show up fully authentic, we stand confident in who we are — all parts of us (the good, the bad, the ugly, the beautiful, etc.). This is my challenge to myself this month. Perhaps, I can challenge some of you, too.

With aloha,

Charlie

Charlie Teixeira
President
