This episode features the High Leverage Practice of Connection with Megan Peppenelli, PhD. As a scientist following an untraditional path, Megan illuminates how deep connection – both with yourself and others – ultimately requires disconnect. She shares “Living in the uncomfortable is where you grow. And it can be a really crappy process. When have I outgrown this thing that I’m in?” Willing to be vulnerable about the “truth of the matter”, Megan opens up about imposter syndrome and how to move beyond what society has told you to think, or be or to do. As a pursuer of authentic connection, Megan will inspire all to want the same!I'm listening to Megan Peppenelli on the #Influential She podcasts Click To Tweet
