049 Hidden Root of Incompetence pt4 – Turning Towards Your Weakness

In this episode, I tell the story of the most embarrassing moment of my teenage years and how I survived to learn from the experience. And if that isn’t reason enough to listen, we explore the power of turning toward discomfort and being strong enough to undergo and overcome shame. What if the feeling of shame was actually a reason to engage in something, not avoid it? What if subjecting yourself to embarrassment, when there’s a good reason for it, is actually a powerful way to learn?


I’m very excited to announce the release of my ebook, “Cut the Bullshit: Solve Your Problems By Getting Real.” It’s full of direct, practical advice related to getting employees engaged, hiring right the first time, how to create a culture of radical responsibility, and a lot more. For a limited time, I’m giving this ebook away for nothing. So if you have some spare nothing, go to clearandopen.com/ctb to download it. That’s CTB standing for Cut the Bullshit, a free ebook to reward and support my loyal listeners.
