Season 01 Episode 04
How to bring your “flawsome” best self to work, and the art of effective feedback
Being flawsome is about being comfortable in our own skin and accepting the flaws that make us who we are. It’s this concept that forms the basis of author and keynote speaker Georgia Murch’s latest book, simply titled ‘Flawsome’.
In this episode we talk to Georgia about why admitting we are flawed as human beings can ultimately help us to become more authentic leaders. “Being authentic is about being real or genuine – being who you are. The concept of flawsome is about dropping the pursuit of perfection but also knowing that without your flaws you wouldn’t be you,” says Georgia. We also discusses:
- Why panic is the most common response when someone says “I’d like to give you some feedback”
- The role of nature and nurture in formulating our reactions to feedback
- How to create cultures where people feel empowered to bring their whole selves to work
- Why COVID-19 has levelled the playing field in terms of how we relate to others
