Let’s talk about Imposter Syndrome.

While Imposter Syndrome is a universal experience there are times when this experience is activated more than others.

A common trigger for Imposter Syndrome is when we take on new and expanded roles. There’s excitement at first and then the potential for doubting yourself will creep in.

Imposter Syndrome, and the reactions women often have to it - overpreparing or withdrawing, can hobble women just as they are given an opportunity to make a greater impact.

In August I had an opportunity to speak on a panel for Aspen Tech’s Women’s Leadership Forum. That is where I met Kim Meninger. We instantly clicked and the added bonus is Kim specializes in Imposter Syndrome and even did a TED Talk on the subject.

In this episode Kim and I discuss:

  • Imposter Syndrome as a fear response: Kim likens imposter syndrome to our brain's fight or flight response and offers practical steps to manage it.
  • How everyone experiences imposter syndrome but men and women tend to respond to it in different ways.
  • The importance of recognizing individual triggers and patterns that activate imposter syndrome.
  • How to approach your work in a way that prevents over-preparation or withdrawal.
  • Giving yourself space and grace when taking on a new role.

Have you and your coworkers been grappling with burnout at work?

Burnout has been a hot topic and yet it continues to persist because the symptoms are often dismissed as run-of-the-mill stress or overwork.

In this episode I’m chatting with Julia Coit and Lindsay Coit, two of the breakout session speakers for The Maine Women's Conference coming up on October 25th. They shared their personal stories and their insightful perspectives on burnout at work.

In this episode Lindsey, Julia and I discuss:

·         The current state of affairs in regard to burnout.

·         The myths of burnout that keep us from eradicating it.

·         Why learning about burnout makes you a better leader.

·         The Solution: a marriage of individuals and corporations.

·         Where to get started
