What you’ll learn about in this episode:

  • Why Kris chose to focus his career on solving leadership and communication problems in businesses and overcoming the Imposter Syndrome
  • How Kris defines the Imposter Syndrome, and why it causes us to overvalue the accomplishments of others and undervalue our own unique traits and accomplishments
  • Why we often find ourselves comparing the reality of our own lives with a simplified, polished and curated version of other people’s lives we see on social media
  • Why entrepreneurs by nature are at higher risk of falling to the Imposter Syndrome, and why allowing yourself to be vulnerable is crucial to overcoming the Imposter Syndrome
  • Why expressing his own vulnerability to a young entrepreneur gave the entrepreneur a sense of relief and emotional release, and led to Kris writing his book “Overcoming The Impostor”
  • Why being open and vulnerable is the antidote to the trap of the Imposter Syndrome, and why community without vulnerability will “feed the Imposter”
  • Why you should focus on becoming a part of organizations and communities where vulnerability is the norm and encouraged
  • Why it’s important to shift your mindset and realize that failure isn’t the opposite of success but a key part of success
  • How legends Babe Ruth and Mickey Mantle had the highest number of strikeouts in all of Major League Baseball because they were willing to take chances
  • Why you don’t have to love failure to avoid fearing it, and why you should accept the compliments you are given and internalize them
