Dr. Greg Barnett is the Chief People Scientist at Energage, the provider of a leading employee engagement platform. Greg is an Industrial Organizational Psychologist who’s done stints at Hogan Assessments and IBM Kenexa. More recently, Greg and I worked together at The Predictive Index. He’s as entertaining as he is knowledgeable, and as soon as I launched my new podcast, I couldn’t wait to get Greg onto the show.
Top 3 Takeaways
- Pay attention to feedback when it’s given to you, but don’t be overly self-critical—make progress, don’t chase perfection.
- Recognize that self awareness is a journey and that your developmental efforts should evolve over time—work to be well rounded earlier in your career while doubling down on strengths later on.
- Use your self awareness as a type of North Star and always remain true to yourself so that you don’t convince yourself that a situation or a decision is a fit when it actually isn’t.
