# 204: How To Finally Stop Allowing Imposter Syndrome To Stunt Your Career Growth With Jaz Marfo
Manage episode 353456928 series 3026831
In today's episode of the 'Career Change Maker' podcast we have Jaz M, coach for ambitious careers and communities and we are going to be having discussion about imposter syndrome.
The reason why I want to focus on this is to make people aware that Impostor syndrome is not inherently bad. The shame that comes with it is that's bad and that's the actual debilitating part underneath it.
· 1.31: Jaz has been coaching for five years and she is passionate about working with high achievers to lift the limits of our careers to avoid burnout, overwhelmed and underwhelmed and its thing that we try to avoid in our careers.
· 4.36: A report that was done last year by KPMG said that 75% of female executives had experienced imposter syndrome in their career, and that number is higher for women of colour.
· 9.43: If you get the feedback from leadership relationship, then you can improve and if you can improve, it's going to be good for everybody and you are entitled to take feedback because you are in the role.
· 25.27: When syndrome is in the personal life, there are no hobbies, there are no relationships, there are no passions.
· 31.18: Having little sentence endings that are ultimately invitations to action from the people that let them know that I am not sharing for the sake of sharing, and I am part of the active discussion can be grateful.
· 34.20: For a lot of us, certain phrases or certain experiences can really, really tighten our experience of imposter syndrome and when we start to decode that, then that's the beginning of coming along but leaving the shame behind.
What you will learn:
- Imposter syndrome is the experience of not believing you are as competent as others perceive you to be, which essentially means that you are worrying about what you think other people think. It is multi-sensory experience.
- One of the things that we tend to overlook when we talk about imposter syndrome is understanding how much our environment plays into it because many of us, especially an executive level, we are operating in an environment that wasn't necessarily made for us.
- One of the biggest flags that you could be experiencing imposter syndrome is secret over time. It's something that we do at some stage. It does serve us in some moments and in other ways it does.
- Growth mindset is essentially a belief that you can improve by efforts and fix mindset is no matter what my efforts are, it is what it is.
