Sometimes the context of our work seems to suggest a more professional, reserved approach to our work. Too much emotion, too much enthusiasm is seen as someone who is trying too hard.

This is a culture problem, rather than an individual issue. We have created a culture that is comfortable to settle into the status quo, expects it in fact, and dilutes excellence and individual contribution when it falls outside of these boundaries.

People empowered to express their passions at work to a powerful narrative that unlocks innovation and inspires participation. It’s a tricky balance to manage, but it sure is a lot easier when you hire people that are already passionate to do what you hire them for.

Competence only gets you so far.
