Just the other day, I got asked by a client “to tone down my anti-corporate messaging”. Yikes. And I was a little taken aback. In fact, they said they watched my TEDx talk, which is about leveraging your job now and letting that take you to your best next, whatever that is. This was one of the things that made them think that. So this is not a defensive rant, guys, you can watch my TEDx talk and search by my name: Anna Oakes. My talk is about leveraging your now to get to your best next. Feel free to listen to it yourself. But here's the thing, guys, this isn't a defense, this is an explanation. I'm not anti corporate, I'm pro humanity. So after 20 years in corporate, I realized after I left that I was an intrapreneur for pretty much that entire 20 years. I was even more ready to be an entrepreneur. I did not leave corporate America because I hated it. I left corporate America because I felt like that's what this season of my life was calling me into. I might go back to it someday. In fact, it's my life's work to restore humanity into our work and in our workplaces. I don't want people to leave. Not everybody's meant to be an entrepreneur. I want people to stay within organizations. I want those change agents to get busy. Let’s dive in.
