The Job Hunting Podcast

121.Impostor syndrome and fear of success: A conversation with Michelle Redfern.

February 14, 2022

Today we have a very different episode on The Job Hunting Podcast, where I have swapped chairs with a past guest, Michelle Redfern, from episode 37, and she is the one interviewing me.

Michelle has recently launched her podcast with her business partner Mel Butcher, The Lead to Soar Podcast, and they are killing it. Sticking to their strength in supporting women in leadership, they have lined up a great guest list, so I recommend that you check it out, follow, subscribe, and leave them your support in the form of a 5-star ranking and a great review, because nothing makes a podcast host happier and receiving feedback believe me. 

This interview in its entirety is on Michelle's podcast. I have edited her intro out with her blessing, of course, and repurposed it for you to listen to. There are great episodes in her show you should listen to, like the Agile Leader and Giving and Receiving feedback which I think are topics you wouldn't find here on The Job Hunting Podcast. Still, they are such great complimentary conversations to what we discuss in this show, yes? Let's enjoy this episode.
