Authentic and Sensitive!

When it comes to people, it is important to be authentic, yet sensitive. It is a delicate balance.

Some people are insensitive in the guise of being authentic. Some are too sensitive to the point of not being authentic.

The balance between being authentic yet sensitive applies in all walks of life. It applies to your children, your spouse, parents, siblings, coworkers, supervisors, subordinates, volunteer teams, business partners, boss, or investors.

If you are trying to appoint someone to a role and want him or her to perform at their peak then being sensitive and authentic will have the highest chance of success. Sensitive will make the person feel respected and being authentic will keep the foundation of trust and integrity.

If you have to choose between being sensitive or authentic then choose authentic but it need not be either/or.
