#19 How To Overcome Self-Doubt & Imposter Syndrome

Season #3

Do you find yourself wondering whether you really "belong" in the meeting? It's normal for self-doubt to creep in... And it's normal to feel like an imposter sometimes, especially when we feel that other people are way more qualified than us.

When we get "stuck in our heads" doubting and overthinking, we miss crucial moments to make an impact.

By the end of this episode, you will have seven key ideas to try, that will dislodge any grip that doubt or Imposter Syndrome have on you, so that you can feel more clear, calm, and confident in business.

Here's a glance at this episode:

What other people are saying about Tanya:

Gregg, Chief Technology Officer

"We had the pleasure of working with Tanya as a Management group and then also on a 1:1 basis. This allowed us collectively focus on our team performance and then also use Tanya's experience and knowledge to help us focus and prioritise on a personal and individual level to also contribute to those team goals. Tanya is fun to work with and very encouraging, very valuable training and insights gained - highly recommended."

Pratik, Managing Partner

"You can read all those books and listen to podcasts to plan and energise your thoughts, but when it comes to implementation and seeing it through, you need to be accountable. Remember - it’s always on you! Tanya makes it simple to build your routine in a way that gets you more productive outcomes. Even Warren Buffet needed a coach. It’s the best investment."

Hassna, Senior Operations Manager

"Tanya had created an experience like no other. She is immensely knowledgeable, bringing variety to every session. It makes a big difference that she has a vested interest in your progress and challenges you in every session, which keeps you motivated. Getting a coach is a life-changing experience that helped me to grow personally and professionally. Couldn’t recommend it highly enough."
