She talks about the fruitful effect that having to flounder had on her life, career, and choices.

She presents her definition of creativity, distinguishing it from originality. She notes the danger of self-limiting beliefs, shares stories of her clients’ journeys and successes, and speaks on the importance and difficulty of letting people struggle. “Questions are so so powerful because you’re not telling somewhat what to do. You’re asking them questions so that they can gain insight into their own thinking and their own motivations. And by doing that, they can then tap into their own inner wisdom.” - Susan Peppercorn This week on The Virtual Campfire Podcast: The benefits of having to flounder The desire to make an impact Service leadership Creativity vs. originality Recognizing your gifts Resources Mentioned: 7 Traits of an Inspiring Leader The Second Mountain: The Quest for a Moral Life by David Brooks Ditch Your Inner Critic: Evidence-Based Strategies to Thrive in Your Career by Susan Peppercorn Connect with Susan LinkedIn Website Twitter Facebook Sharing Inspiring Stories Around The Virtual Campfire Thanks for tuning into today’s episode of The Virtual Campfire with your host, Tony Martignetti - the Inspired Coach.

268: Susan Peppercorn: Ditch Your Inner Critic and Thrive In Your Career

Leaders Of Transformation | Conscious Business | Global Transformation | Leadership Development

Susan is the author of the bestselling book Ditch Your Inner Critic At Work: Evidence-Based Strategies To Thrive In Your Career and an executive coach, and speaker. Certified as a Positive Psychology coach, Susan applies the science of how people thrive to help her clients find satisfaction in their careers. She writes for Harvard Business Review on self-management and has published on overcoming the fear of failure, taking control of your onboarding and conquering self-doubt. She is certified as an executive coach by the International Coaching Federation (ICF) and has a B.A. from Queens College, City University of New York and a M.A. from The University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana, Illinois. In her conversation with us today, Susan discusses failure, success, and how to ditch your inner critic at work. Even successful people have an inner critic. We explore the difference between seeking excellence verses perfection, how to deal with the imposter syndrome and get off the shame train. Listen as Susan provides practical steps to transform what you say and believe about yourself, as well as how to give healthy feedback as a leader so that you empower your people and help them quash their own inner critic. Key Takeaways We are biologically wired to scan for threats. The inner critic is a self-protective mechanism. Successful people have an inner critic, but it is usually situation specific. We all need people in our lives who will give us feedback that’s honest yet compassionate. A good leader will provide feedback routinely – not just once a year. Feedback should be very specific In dealing with failure, acknowledge the pain of it but do not to wallow in it or blow it out of proportion. The person striving for excellence knows what the goal looks like, while the perfectionist keeps moving the goal further and further away. Perfectionists tend to procrastinate because they are so afraid of making a mistake. Shaming is blaming ourselves endlessly for a mistake we made.
