I’m not sure I can do this, they’ve over estimated my abilities, I think I’m going to get found out, I’m scared I’ve taken on too much, what if I fail and I can’t do it? Does this sounds familiar? Do you feel no matter how hard you work it’s never quite enough? Do you worry what other people will think? Do you tend to avoid taking risks or taking on challenges through fear that you’re not quite ready yet? Do you hold exceedingly high expectations of yourself and always aim for perfection?
You’re not alone; these thoughts played continuously in my mind despite countless promotions as I worked my way up the ladder and then as I sat around leadership tables and worked with groups of leaders in my Leadership Development work these thoughts echoed in their minds too. It’s more common than we think yet never talked about and the more we succeed the louder this voice becomes. But it’s not reality, it is just that; a voice in our heads often clouded by our brains negativity bias. Don’t let it slow your progress or allow these feelings to prevent you achieving your potential – learn how to navigate your negativity bias, overcome feelings of self-doubt, build resilience and face these fears to be the person you’re capable of being.
In this course we’ll look at what Imposter Syndrome is, why it effects so many women and how we can navigate those nagging feelings of self doubt to be our best and unlock our potential. Understand the impacts of fear of failure, perfectionism and our people pleasing tendencies. With practical tips to help build self-efficacy, resilience and navigate those feelings of fear and inadequacy.

I help busy high achievers go from burnout to brilliance, to cultivate a mindset of peak performance, lead with confidence, fuel our tanks to ensure we are a sustainable resource and can achieve our potential to have influence and impact.
Tapping into our brilliance creates a positive mindset, we have more fulfilling careers, because we spend time doing what matters, our to do list is aligned to our purpose.
We have the confidence to back ourselves, own our space and stop doubting ourselves, we don’t compare to others and we stop procrastinating.
We develop impact and have more influence, we feel less fear and are able to lead with confidence to perform at our peak
When we achieve our potential we make more money, develop our career, gain the confidence to go for the promotions and make better choices.
When we’re full of energy we’re resilience, we have more free time, because we’re not overwhelmed trying to do everything for everyone. We’re also healthier and happier.
