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

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
