Staying True to Who You Are w/ Jim Tubbs, CEO State Bank of Cross Plains
Staying True to Yourself
[01:56] Today I have a special guest and long-time leader in our community, Jim Tubbs, current president and CEO at State Bank across planes. Jim knows a great deal about staying true to yourself and being an authentic leader.
Why Being Authentic is Important in Leadership
[00:38] Today’s topic is the importance of staying true to who you are. Now, a lot of us have a variety of quote-unquote selves that come out depending on the social situation, be at work, home, and friends all require a different song and dance, but putting on a different show for every group of people you encounter can be super exhausting and it’s certainly not a good way to inspire people around you. Would you place your confidence in a person who was so uncomfortable in the personality that they felt the need to pander to whoever they’re around or whatever crowd there with or put your trust in someone who changes their views and attitudes from one setting to the next? This is why it’s important to be authentic and to embrace your true self without apology. When you are authentic and value-driven, you choose to align your actions with what you believe in.
[01:30] Those who are unsure can find themselves in sticky situations. They don’t know who they are or whom they’re trying to please. This can cause them to continuously find themselves reacting to stress rather than acting in a way that is true to who they really are. You won’t simply have less stress when you’re grounded in values and authenticity, but you’ll be able to handle it better because you’ll be able to tackle it with clarity.
