Why team building is so important.

What would you say is the most important aspect of team building? Is it the skillset of the team members, the direction of the leader, the environment they operate in or is it something else? On this episode of BeFulfilled, you’ll hear from entrepreneur and innovator Dov Baron. Dov has learned over the years from his experience of leading others and working alongside renowned business leaders that the key to team building is uniting around a common bond.

Exposing an oversized ego.

Be honest, do you have an oversized ego? Seriously! What is the state of your self-image? Do you think that you are extremely important or do you tend to think less of yourself compared to others? Either perspective can have ripple effects on how you show up in the world. On this episode of BeFulfilled, Dov Baron opens up about his journey of exposing his oversized ego and coming face to face with the real Dov. While Dov’s journey isn’t an easy one, he looks back and is thankful that he has been able to embrace authenticity and minimize the effects of an oversized ego. What can you learn from Dov’s story?

If you only had one chance to walk into a room full of people you’ve never met, how would you seek to connect with them? Would you try to make them laugh? Would you try to engage them with some innovative and out of the box idea? What would be your strategy? On this episode of BeFulfilled, Dov Baron reveals his key to connecting with others in a deep and personal way. According to Dov, it all comes down to the power of vulnerability. If you take the time to open up and reveal who you really are, the authentic you, warts and all, people will respond.
