    How to overcome imposter syndrome at work

    How to overcome imposter syndrome at work

    Last week, we discussed the five types of imposter syndrome, and how we can identify which one we suffer from and where it shows up in our work; this week, I want to talk about the root causes of imposter syndrome but most importantly, how to overcome imposter syndrome at work. Identifying the root cause is a huge step in overcoming it in your career.

     

    For some, it stems from a single bad experience they may have had early on in their careers. For others, it could stem from their upbringing. For others, it could be limiting beliefs. 

     

    Everyone is different, and everyone has different places where their imposter syndrome has grown from. But if we can track down that root, it will be that much easier to fight off those lingering thoughts and fears that are holding us back from stepping into the roles we deserve.

    5 Types of Imposter Syndrome and Their Symptoms

    5 Types of Imposter Syndrome and Their Symptoms

    Last week, we talked about what imposter syndrome is and how it can show up in your professional life. Today, I'm going to talk about the five types of imposter syndrome and how to recognize their unique symptoms.
     
    The five imposter syndrome archetypes I'm going to be discussing today are:
     
    The Perfectionist
    The Superwoman
    The Natural Genius
    The Soloist
    The Expert
     
    You don't always experience just one of these—many times, I've found myself struggling with symptoms from all five—but there is often one overarching type that we struggle with depending on our skills and our backgrounds, and knowing which it is can help us identify it, combat it, and ultimately defeat it.

    3 Signs You’re Suffering from Imposter Syndrome

    3 Signs You’re Suffering from Imposter Syndrome

    If you're experiencing thoughts such as...
     
    "Sooner or later, they're going to realize I'm not as good as they think I am."
    "I just got lucky; it had nothing to do with me."
    "Who am I to be doing ____?"

     
    Then you're likely suffering from imposter syndrome.
     
    Imposter syndrome keeps you from reaching for what you deserve, whispering lies about why you haven't earned them; why you aren't good enough to hold that position, to get that raise, to give that presentation, etcetera. Imposter syndrome will convince you that no matter what you do, you will never be good enough for the things you want...if you let it.
     
    Today will be the first in a three-part series discussing what imposter syndrome is, why it can't be trusted, and how you can defeat it. Let's get started.

    The 4 secret ingredients to advance your career into a leadership role

    Are you showing up as a leader or a follower? Maybe you think being a shadow and working endless hours each day is the key to your promotion. For six to seven years of my ten-year career, I was working on the wrong things because I had the wrong presumptions of what it took to get a promotion. When I did get a promotion, I thought I got it because I was working hard, staying late, and going the extra mile. In this episode, I share the four secret ingredients to advancing your career into a leadership role without running out of hours each day.

     

    Highlights from this episode: 

    The misconceptions about getting promoted (2:47)
    Demonstrating your ability to lead (4:51)
    Leading yourself to lead others (7:43)
    Developing your leadership identity (10:17)
    Showing up in service to others (13:20)
    Taking responsibility and making decisions as a leader (14:36)

     

    From today onwards, decide that you will take responsibility and start to wear the identity of a leader, respond and show up as a leader in every situation you can. As always, if you have questions or want to go through this and know you need the support, drop me a DM with the word elevate. We will talk about how I can support you in developing this leadership identity, and if you want to step into the next level in your career, I invite you to join me on a virtual career game plan call.
