Thad Peterson is the Director of Product Marketing, Core Platform at Zoominfo. Thad and I worked together at The Predictive Index, and he has always struck me as one of the most authentic people I’ve ever met. When I decided to delve into the topic of leadership authenticity, I knew I had to get Thad onto my show.
Top 3 Takeaways
- Pay attention to how other leaders make you feel when you feel at your best, and try replicate those specific behaviors in your own leadership.
- Show interest in other people as people and you’ll have a strong relationship foundation for those times when you have to deliver constructive criticism or ask for a better effort.
- Conceding a point when you’re wrong or in favor of a better approach doesn’t weaken your authority but instead creates trust and respect on the part of your followers.
