Clare Josa on acknowledging and ditching imposter syndrome - MAF224

This week my guest is Clare Josa and we talk about imposter syndrome.

In a world increasingly recognising the importance of mental health and well-being, it's equally important to acknowledge this condition which can affect even the most confident and successful people.

Let's grab a coffee and talk to Clare about it.

Welcome to episode 224 of the Marketing and Finance Podcast.

We chat about:

  • My experience with imposter syndrome 35,000ft above the Alps
  • What imposter syndrome is and how it makes us feel
  • The difference between imposter syndrome and self-doubt
  • How imposter syndrome can worsen the gender pay gap
  • Should we consider imposter syndrome alongside other mental health and well-being issues?
  • The ABC method of dealing short term with an attack
  • 5 steps to ditching imposter syndrome forever

Who is Clare Jose?

Clare mentors business leaders to help them to ditch Imposter Syndrome and to clear their self-imposed glass ceilings.

Originally a Mechanical Engineer, Clare became an NLP Trainer in 2003, specialising in the psychology and neuroscience of peak performance.
