Rethinking Impostor Syndrome

Imposter Syndrome AssociateMillions of people — CEOs and business owners, first year college students and PhDs, artists and programmers — secretly worry they’re not as smart or talented as other people “think” they are. It’s called the impostor syndrome and it impacts both individuals and their organization. In this interactive session you will:

  • Understand what impostor syndrome is – and what it is not 
  • Discover the sources of impostor feelings 
  • Understand how impostor syndrome intersects with diversity and inclusion – and why it matters
  • Identify your personal “Competence Type”
  • Understand the individual and organizational costs of impostor syndrome
  • Leave with practical, immediately usable tools to help yourself and/or those you manage, mentor, or parent to address impostor syndrome

Self Leadership: Knowing Yourself to Grow Your Business

All leadership starts with self leadership – if you can’t lead yourself effectively you won’t be able to lead a team, a project or a company. Self leadership starts with knowing ourselves at a deeper level, so that we can face our fears, move forward despite uncertainty and lead by example to those around us. The more we know ourselves the more we are able to grow. In this session we dive into: 

  • The truth about confidence and the role it plays in our success
  • 5 ways we over-compensate for our feelings of self-doubt
  • Self leadership strategies to combat worry, doubt & fear

Finding & Hiring Top Performers

Can I keep it real with you? There are LOTS of people out there you can hire to support you in your business – VAs, OBMs, marketers, tech folks, sales, etc. – but not all of them are going to be top performers. Hiring a top performer is the difference between having someone who helps you grow the business vs. having someone who waits to be told what to do (and just creates more work for you). In this session I’m going to share with you

  • the 5 characteristics of a top performer,
  • what results they can create for you
  • how to identify whether they are – or aren’t! – a top performer during the interview process
  • leading a top performer (so they want to stay with you long term)
