Make yourself uncomfortable. The Imposterous Peter Nankervis wants to remove the white noise in your feedback
This week’s episode features Peter Nankervis (CEO and Founder of Lighthouse Group) sharing the deep, dark secrets of business transformation, accelerated success and growing connected dynamic teams.
Our conversation starts with the importance of structure and an awareness of your individual brand and a roadmap to your own success. Along the way we discuss the benefits of understanding your strengths, what aspects of the job you are most passionate about and where you can contribute most confidently.
This conversation is about knowing how you want to show up and how to be a consistent leader – one of the most underrated skills in the business today.
We also talk about the tricky subject of feedback and we have a difficult conversation about having difficult conversations.
Pete is a big believer that we must change the culture around the giving and receiving feedback. If we focus on building faith in success and are very open to not being perfect then feedback is a constructive conversation that can’t be taken personally.
And finally, something you’ve known all along. One of the key factors to advancing in business is the need for mentors and coaching in the areas of business, financials and strategic acumen. We need to eliminate the excuse, ‘Jeez, I just don’t understand the numbers’. The days of defeatist talk are numbered and listening to this episode is a good place to start.
With a new episode every Tuesday, The Imposterous is hosted by Michael Knox (ECD, Roller) and Graham Drew (CCO, Grey Malaysia) and has been created to explore the theory that even the world’s most respected creative professionals suffer pangs of inadequacy that either stifle their potential brilliance or protects them from mediocrity. Tune in to find out how Imposter Syndrome might just be a thing that you don’t have to run from.
