#030 – Ego, Impostor Syndrome and The Fear Of Not Being Good Enough (Leadership Insight 7)
I’m certain that you have your challenges with one or more of these areas at points in your life and work. They all emanate from the survival part of our psychology. The primal part of our brain & the amygdala (the emotional centre) often overrides our more developed frontal cortex (responsible for problem solving & reasoning). We are continually looking for risks, deficiencies & problems. This inevitability turns inwards & this is when Ego, Impostor Syndrome and the fear of not being good enough can take hold. This is the 2nd ‘Leadership Insight’ podcast episode in the new series, where we will take a look at this fascinating area and how to limit the damage this can cause for us all.

#011 – The Power Of Language (Leadership Insight 4)
How we ‘Think’ and ‘See’ our world is shaped by the language we use on a daily basis. This impacts on what we ‘Do’. The problem is that we’re not fully aware of the language we use and much of this can be on autopilot. This can result in the use of unchecked negative language, doubtful language and mannerisms. It’s important for us all to be significantly more conscious of the language we use In this ‘Leadership Insight’ we are going to examine the language we use and misuse.
