Sharing your life experiences is a brave way to connect with your audience.

In business we often steer away from revealing personal experiences, for fear of ‘over sharing’ in the work place.   Being “authentic” at work doesn’t always extend to what’s really going on in our personal lives.

Today, Channel 9’s Georgie Gardner stepped out from her news reader role to share a very personal story about miscarriage and the ongoing emotional effect it has on her family. Georgie’s decision to share her story is a brave one and will no doubt resonate with many women (and their partners) who have also experienced miscarriage.
We all have our own personal stories that shape us and have the potential to connect us to not just friends and family but work colleagues, clients and associates.  Don’t be frightened to share them.  Bravo Georgie!
