You Don’t Have to Fit in a Box

To fill a role.
To take a position.
To get a job.
You don’t need to fit in a box.
You are much more than a “thing” in a box.
You are your most valuable when you are you.

Stop hiring talent only to shove them in a box.
Talent doesn’t need to fit into your neatly designed box.
And – they don’t.
They are much more than that – a filler in a box.
They are their most valuable – to you – when they can be themselves.

Not sure where you are going?
Not sure if you are going in the right direction?

There are many boxes.
You don’t have to narrow down to one.
Keep those that light a fire in you.
But stay away – throw away – those that trap you in and tape the lid shut.

Build on those that keep your fire burning.
Be you.
