How Learning Projection Helped Me to Build a World Class Team – Podcast Episode 58

You know me by now. What the podcast is about is not only what the podcast is about – it’s always about something more. When I first learned about the psychology of “projection” it slapped me in the face like a 150mph tennis serve from Roger Federer. The idea intrigued me so much that I had to dive in deep. And I’m glad I did, because since then it has transformed the way I look at other people. Whether it’s hiring new members of a team, or just meeting new people with whom you’re thinking of starting a new relationship, this insight into the human psyche pays dividends in so many ways. On today’s show I’m going to tell you about the times in my life where projection has played a pivotal role in crucial decisions I’ve had to make about people.

    I loved this! There is a saying in spanish “the lion always believes everyone behaves like the lion does” (free translation), I thought it applied most of the time, I never thought about applying it to every interaction I have, and the insights you talked about to hire people using this concept, I mean I just learned so much in this hour, ty!

    Well, hello there! I listened to this podcast during my morning cardio today and I found it very interesting and, of course, insightful. I’m always interested in why people act the way they do and try to conjure up excuses for rude behavior such as maybe a loved one just died (my mother died March 23, 2021), maybe they just got fired, maybe their spouse is an asshole, maybe this, maybe that. Maybe they’re just rude and think the world revolves around them! At first, I try to give people the benefit of the doubt. What does that say about me? We are in the process of hiring a new receptionist at our business and the information on projecting will come in handy for that! Thanks again, Kim! XOXO

      First of all, let me give all my love to you on the loss of your Mum very sorry to hear that 💕 It’s very interesting and insightful to study human behavior, especially when you don’t have the emotional attachment to it. Good luck on hiring a receptionist 🙌 xoxo
