Being emotionally empowered in the workplace lends to greater stability and security.  Exponential possibilities exist when we identify our needs and employ that armour.

Here are her top three tips for becoming emotionally empowered:

1. Embrace failure

We learn from our failures. Take each failure as an opportunity to learn, grow and improve. They are not hurdles but just another step to success.

2. Find your personal armour

We all have fears and weaknesses. Being honest with yourself regarding what your weaknesses are only makes you stronger and more resilient. Your personal armour is really about managing your fears and weaknesses – embrace them; they are a part of you.

3. Inspire others

We need to lift each other up or we all fall. We had points of inspiration in our lives and now it is our turn to be that inspiration for others.
