The difference between self-doubt and imposter syndrome and why it matters.
What’s the difference between self doubt and full blown imposter syndrome, and why does it matter? If you’ve ever experienced thoughts or feelings that make you feel like a fraud, you’ll know how much even a little self-doubt can hold you back.
And when you’ve got a big mission to fulfil, the last thing you need is your mental monkeys running amok, asking who DO you think you are to do this!
In last week’s interview (#077) I talked to leadership consultant and coach, Sherry Bevan, about her mission to get more women into leadership roles in the technology sector. We talked about the power of authenticity and the difference it makes when you use different strategies to manage those moments where you feel really challenged in your mission.
Looking back on our conversation, in this week’s episode I take the opportunity to learn more about imposter syndrome and how it affects us when our experience is more persistent and intense than everyday self-doubt. You’ll also hear 3 important questions that can help us disrupt the thinking that holds us back when doubt creeps in.
If you’re a woman on a mission who is tired of doubting yourself and holding back from being all that you can be, this week’s Insights episode is for you.
