Fake it until you make it. This may work to help you overcome some insecurities, public speaking, for example. However, if you fake it too long, whether this is your experience, next quarter’s numbers, etc., the truth will come out. Sabrina Horn tells Kevin that integrity is not optional. She is the author of Make it, Don’t Fake it – Leading with Authenticity for Real Business Success. She acknowledges it can be lonely at the top and even if you are making all the decisions, you don’t have to know it all. When you can admit what you don’t know or that you made a mistake, you level the playing field for your team and build a culture of trust and growth.
In this episode, Sabrina discusses:
- The good and bad of faking it.
- Leadership authenticity.
- Leadership loneliness.
- Leadership self-care.
