Why pride is good! by Dr Christian Jarrett

Here a link to a brilliant article on www.99u.com by Dr Christian Jarrett - although it's aimed at the creative industries I recognise a reluctance to take 'authentic pride' in many of my coaching clients. 

'Authentic pride' is not the action of the hubristic bragger but 'satisfaction and pleasure we take from the positive outcomes of our hard work and dedication.' I find that we don't always pause to take a moment to appreciate positive outcomes and there is always the thought that 'pride comes before a fall' which can temper our behaviour and really 'pop our balloon'.
