Be A Workplace SuperHERO
The point of the Workplace Hero's journey is to develop one's strengths, gain perspective, and overcome one's weaknesses and nemeses.
We all have powers: job skills and personal strengths we can use to pursue our goals. We all have weaknesses: blind spots that can bring us down at the worst moments. We all have arch nemeses: external forces that stand in our way. If we are lucky, we have a solid team that uses our strengths, covers our blindspots and can help us face our nemeses.

I've been asked, why use Superheroes and other fictional characters when talking about real-world issues like workplace effectiveness and team building. I love answering this question...
