TTL 326 | Emotional Nakedness

Emotional Nakedness with Dr. Patrick Williams and Walking On The Glass Floor with Judy Hoberman

Unlocking your fullest potential in your career, business, or personal relationships can be made possible by getting naked. According to Dr. Patrick Williams, leadership coach, shadow coaching specialist, and author of Getting Naked, that means being emotionally naked which is really about cutting the crap and releasing the baggage that’s held you hostage for so long. Dr. Williams goes deep into the subject of emotional nakedness and takes a closer look at mindfulness or purposeful pause, curiosity, what makes people passionate, and how emotions impact perceptions.

 

In a male-dominated workplace, it is very challenging for a woman to stand out. Judy Hoberman, author of Walking on the Glass Floor and President of Selling in a Skirt, shares the challenges she faced in such a situation. Judy was always the only woman in the room. Realizing that men and women are so different in how they speak up, ask questions, or listen, she decided to take notes and take the differences and use them as assets rather than liabilities. Judy shares her background and what led her interest in focusing on women. She also touches on soft skills, perception, and what she means by “walking on the glass floor.”

Michael Bungay Stanier’s answer is you can never ask too many questions when you have a genuine intent of knowing instead of just trying to prove a point. On the flip side, questions can come as drive-by interrogations which sometimes make the person give advice as an answer.

Myers Briggs MBTI: Testing Your Relationships

Myers Briggs MBTI personality assessments are often utilized by organizations.  In today’s Wall Street Journal, the article Do You Get an ‘A’ in Personality discussed the importance of utilizing personality assessments in family situations as well. 

Greg Cellini from WSOU 89.5 FM interviewed me recently about this very topic.  One of his questions Greg had for me was if using the MBTI was helpful for families.  It definitely can be.  The reason is that a lot of misunderstandings occur due to the fact that many people don’t realize “why” other people do the things that they do. 

By understanding personality preferences, we are more likely to be tolerant of others.  In the audio clip that follows, Greg Cellini and I discussed the difference between the J and P personality types.  For those of you unfamiliar with Myers Briggs, there are a lot of articles you can access on this site. The J personality is someone who is very structured and on time.  If you tell them to be somewhere at a specific time, they’ll likely get there early to be sure they are not late.  The P personality is more spontaneous and less structured.  If you tell them to be somewhere at a specific time, they’ll likely get there on time but may wait until the very last moment.  By realizing that the opposite personality functions the way they do for a reason, frustration can be avoided.   For more about this, check out the excerpt from the recent radio interview that follows.

If you have not taken the Myers Briggs assessment, I highly recommend doing so.  You may find out some valuable things that could help you with your relationships at home and at work.  In the article from  WSJOnline.com, they noted that in order to take the Myers-Briggs Type Indicator you can “Go to MBTIreferralnetwork.org to find someone to administer the test. You also can take it online and receive a one-hour telephone feedback assessment for $150 through the Center for Applications of Psychological Type at www.capt.org. Or take a computer-scored version of the test at MBTIcomplete.com for $59.95. When family members take personality tests, their self-awareness goes up and they quickly figure out their strengths and weaknesses, says John Williams, a life coach in Portland, Ore., who uses a test in his work with teenagers. “People realize they are different from other people,” he says. “The personality test becomes a road map.”
