Topics: Editorial Advisory Board, Heather Bussing, HRExaminer, by Heather Bussing
Asking yourself if you are being authentic enough is like asking if your jeans make your butt look big.  The questions are equally narcissistic and no one is going to tell you the truth.  (By the way, transparency always makes your butt look big.)
