The whole LaL experience has been a huge gift to me. It has helped me grow in areas I did not realize I had issues or weaknesses, including tackling my procrastination from the inside out, learning to truly inspire and develop others and asking others for help. It also opened my eyes to see how judgmental I was, allowing me to listen without judgment, which has made a huge difference in my relationships with my co-workers. My colleagues and I who’ve been through LaL have learned that when we have truly open, undefended dialogue, when we are willing to stand up and be vulnerable, it gives everyone else permission, too. It ignites empathy and then people can say what’s really on their mind without fear of judgment. We are getting to the real issues quicker. When the team states what they feel, we get more valuable input with which to make much better decisions.
