Facing the reality of one's own mediocrity can sometimes be daunting, if not crippling. But caught between honesty and imposter syndrome, dealing with it head on can be a useful way to mature in your career. Sometimes it can mean working it out and getting ready to learn again, others it may simply mean realising imperfection is not a fatal flaw - just a normal one.
From big marketing questions to everyday agency life realities, The Overthinkers is a weekly, 20 min conversation between two marketing strategists: Rachel Mercer (@rachelmercer - CXO Proto) and Shann Biglione (@LeShann - Head of Strategy Publicis Media). It is for those who like to (over)think about our industry, with delightful guests occasionally joining Rachel and Shann for extended discussions. Available on Apple Podcasts, Spotify and Soundcloud.
