#18 Bullshit Jobs With Carl Davidson!

Purpose Fuelled Performance

Welcome to this latest episode of the podcast which is also #2 in my new series of PFPTV - Purpose Fuelled Performance TV - as this episode was originally live-streamed on LinkedIn. In this episode, I'm talking to Carl Davidson on the topic of bullshit jobs, lack of meaning in life and how to go about finding it from a psychological perspective. Carl has worked in the insights industry for the last 30 years. Since 2006 he's been with Research First Ltd, who - as the Twitter summary puts it - is a company of 'market researchers, behaviour scientists, strategic thinkers, and good buggers'. He's also written a bunch of books about doing research in New Zealand and he likes to keep his hand in teaching about research wherever he can. Recently he's been spending lots of time talking and writing about critical thinking and the link between smarter thinking and workplace productivity.  _______________________________ Ready for some purpose fuelled performance?

Showing Up!

This week on Showing Up! Michael and Kaushik talk to Carl Davidson from Research First. Carls talks about imposter phenomena. No doubt, most of us have felt like imposters at some point in our career. I went through it earl on when I decided to create videos for Linedin, then again whenever I'd be asked to speak to an audience about what we do. It is something that still occurs and something both Michael and I face from time to time.  Carl shares some invaluable tips on how to recognise and overcome imposter phenomena in your careers. Check it out.
