Imposter Speech - Caroline Flanagan

The battle against Imposter Syndrome

If you’re like me, the battle for success has always been a battle against Imposter Syndrome. I have suffered from Imposter Syndrome for as long as I can remember. From being the only black girl at an all-white school, to being the only one in the room at a top City law firm and beyond, I have always felt like a fraud, that my success was down to luck and that any minute now I’d be exposed.

Sound familiar?

Like you, I wanted to overcome my Imposter Syndrome. I followed the advice on how to ditch it, tame it and conquer it but none of it worked. At least, not in a transformational way. The tips and tricks others recommended sometimes helped me take the next step. But no matter how hard I battled my Imposter Syndrome, I never seemed to win.

Imposter Syndrome isn’t a problem you have to fix

So I stopped battling. Instead of fighting my Imposter Syndrome, I decided to accept it. That’s when I discovered that Imposter Syndrome wasn’t a problem I had to fix. It was a puzzle I needed to solve. When I took the time and did the work to solve it, I discovered that Imposter Syndrome wasn’t my weakness. It was my strength.

Imposter Syndrome is a puzzle you need to solve

Imposter Syndrome is a puzzle you need to solve about who you really are. You can’t solve your Imposter Syndrome at a ‘doing’ level – with tips and tricks – you have to solve it at a ‘being’ level. That means actively exploring your identity, experiences, values and goals to reconnect you with your forgotten power. If this all sounds a bit daunting and vague, don’t worry, I’ve got you covered. I’ve created a powerful tool that will help you solve your Imposter Syndrome so you too can make it a strength.

That tool is the Imposter Speech™

The Imposter Speech™ is a personal statement that uses your Imposter Syndrome to build a powerful new imposter identity. Repeated use gives you instant courage, lasting confidence and shines a spotlight on your value. When you have an Imposter Speech™ you learn to show up as the unique and powerful person you truly are. As a result of creating and using your Imposter Speech™ you will:

  • STOP playing small
  • STOP holding yourself hostage
  • STOP hiding your value
  • START showing up to your potential

Are you ready to turn your Imposter Syndrome into a strength?

The Imposter Speech™ coaching programme is a 6 week group programme or one day intensive workshop where we walk you through the 5 steps of the Imposer Speech™ creation process, and then show you how to use your speech in the real world.
