Are you being yourself or pretending to be someone you’re not? Pretending attracts people who aren’t really your people and creates relationships that aren’t authentic. It’s okay to not have all the answers, but it’s your job to be resourceful and seek out the help that you need. Take a risk. Be yourself. Good things will come.
What you’ll learn from this episode:
- Sometimes managers have an “imposter syndrome.”
- There’s a lack of production at work because people are uncomfortable in their positions and they can’t own up to it and seek out the resources they need.
- Many managers believe that their company should pay for their training, like they shouldn’t have to invest in their own development. Take responsibility for who you want to become in this world.
- If you try something new and fail, that’s an indicator that you have a skill to develop; a sign you need more tools and support. It’s not an indicator that you’re a failure and you should quit.
- It’s okay to not have all the answers. Your job is to find them; be resourceful and seek out the help you need.
