As a new leader to a team, I was struggling in bringing them together, and to collectively align. By better understanding myself and how I was being perceived, Kimberly helped me identify the behaviors that were preventing me from effectively connecting with my team. Because she has been in my shoes, as a leader, she could totally relate and help my situation. She helped me learn how to be more empathetic, change how I give feedback, and helped me understand the importance of having regular and frequent conversations with my team individually, and as a group. I undervalued the need to know each member of my team on a personal level in order to build the trust that was missing. I found Kimberly amazingly easy to talk to, and to open up on issues that I was self-conscious about. She helped me to not be afraid to show some vulnerability. I am finding that in being more authentic, my team responds better to me and I am seeing the cohesiveness and alignment I was looking for.
