You are Special

Week of March 22, 2021

Hope your Monday is off to a good start. We thought this would be a good time to remind you of just how special you are.

Seriously. There’s no one else out there like you and we’re grateful you’re a part of our community.

It’s never been more important that we recognize and respect what makes us each unique and different so we hope this week’s Digest helps you do just that.


📘 Book to Read

Just WorkJust Work
by Kim Scott

Everyone is different — and that’s a good thing. Just Work, which released earlier this week, emphasizes this point and shows why “one-size-fits-all” doesn’t work in the modern workplace. Kim Scott’s previous book, Radical Candor, was a gamechanger and we don’t expect anything less from Just Work.


🎧 Podcast to Listen To

Adam GrantThe Power of Knowing What You Don’t Know‬
Adam Grant on the Dare to Lead Podcast

Adam Grant chats with Brené Brown about the importance of questioning your own opinions and challenging your assumptions. Keeping an open mind is becoming increasingly rare, but it’s exactly what’s needed in the divided world we live in.


📱 App to Use

IntellectIntellect: Create a Better Yo‪u‬

(Available on iOS & Android)

Shine is a daily mental health check-in app and was named Best of 2020 by Apple. It was founded by two women who, as minorities, didn’t feel represented by the current wellness apps so they made a space with that reality in mind. The look, feel, and function of the app is one of the best we’ve seen and definitely recommend giving it a download.

“People evolve, and so your relationships must evolve with them.”
-Kim Scott (Author of Radical Candor and Just Work)
