#12: Feeling Like A Fraud? How To Master Imposter Syndrome

Apr 18, 2024

Have you ever felt like a fraud?

Like, you’ve never had to work for anything you’ve ever achieved — and it’s only a matter of time before people work it out?

If so, you’re in the right place. Today’s episode is a MUST listen as we do a deep dive into imposter syndrome.

Imposter syndrome impacts all of us from time to time, regardless how experienced and successful you are. It usually rears its ugly head whenever you’re starting something new.

I see it all the time in my coaching work, helping high-achieving leaders advance or transition their careers. I’ve also experienced it myself, especially in the early years of my career and business.

Imposter syndrome is one of the biggest barriers to career progression. A lack of confidence leads you to disregard your successes, fear failure and avoid stepping outside your comfort zone.

This has major consequences for your career. It holds you back from being paid your worth or reaching your full potential.

Struggling with imposter syndrome?

In today’s episode, you’ll find out how to stop those ‘fraudy feelings’ — and six simple steps to get unstuck and move ahead. 

You’ll learn:

  • What imposter syndrome is, why you’re experiencing it and how it holds you back professionally
  • Simple, actionable strategies to break this cycle — once and for all
  • How to use neuroscience to shift imposter thoughts, create new beliefs, behaviours and permanent changes
  • The secret to ‘becoming’ more confident which you NEED to know to beat self-doubt and develop the career you want
