How to Overcome Imposter Syndrome ~ Ask Us Anything

Several weeks ago I released Ep 492 How to Release the Grip Imposter Syndrome Has on You with Kim Meninger. So many of you responded with follow-up questions that I asked Kim if she would be open to doing a Live Stream to answer questions on Imposter Syndrome.

Kim was happy to do it and we promoted that event for anyone who wanted to attend live and put a call out for question submissions from those who would not be able to attend or would like to remain anonymous.

For those of you who missed that previous episode…

Meet Kim Meninger

Kim Meninger is an ICF Certified leadership coach and a consultant on a mission to make it easier to be human at work. She recognizes that the greatest challenges we face in the workplace are not related to our competence but to our confidence levels. She strives to reveal the messy human side of the workplace and provide actionable strategies to help us more confidently navigate our work environments. Kim previously held leadership positions managing strategic relationships at EMC and Monster. She holds a BA in psychology and an MBA from Boston College. Kim hosts the Impostor Syndrome Files podcast and leads a weekly Leading Humans discussion forum, which is free and open to all.

In this Imposter Syndrome Ask Us Anything Kim and I discuss:

  • What causes the condition of Imposter Syndrome, the consequences of its development and the ages that are most at risk.
  • How to head off an episode of Imposter Syndrome before you get triggered into a fight or flight response.
  • How to discern the difference between Imposter Syndrome and realistically not being qualified to do something.
  • How to interact with others when you are both the youngest leader in your organization and the youngest person on your team.
  • How to manage others who are experiencing Imposter Syndrome.
