The following questions were posed during our webinar, "Watch Your Wake." If you missed the webinar, the concept of watching your wake has to do with self-management. If you imagine a boat traveling through still water, the wake is the disruption left behind the boat. This is a great metaphor for how our actions impact those we work with everyday. We all have a wake, and whether it is a positive or negative one is up to us. It is our job to make sure that we're self-managing effectively, so that our actions don't affect our coworkers, family, or friends in a negative manner.
