Why Embracing Doubt Makes You a Better Leader [Podcast]

It’s natural to be afraid of doubt — especially when you’re leading a team. You want to be the calm, cool, and collected leader … but inside you’re freaking out. 

Turns out, some of the best leaders and innovators are those who share their doubts with their team. That’s what Kevin Eyres, an executive coach for hyper-growth companies and former executive at LinkedIn, recommends to the leaders he works with. 

This week on The Growth Show, Eyres joins us to talk about the power of doubt, and how it can make you a more innovative leader. Some episode highlights include:

  • How company culture needs to change as you scale (2:40)
  • What most companies forget about when they grow (3:12)
  • Why conscious leadership fuels innovation (7:42)
  • Why it’s so tough for leaders to embrace doubt (10:04)
  • How LinkedIn differentiated itself in the early days from Myspace and Facebook (15:13)
