Episode Description

When it comes to confidence, feeling A-Ok with showing vulnerability, and trying to avoid the sneaky snares of Imposter Syndrome, we often feel at odds, torn between the parts of us that say, “Who do you think you are?” and the parts of us who know who we are. Self-doubt and inadequacy can creep in and color the most assured parts of us at times. But, what’s really at play here? We know it’s an inside job to keep ourselves clear-headed and attuned with our inner knowing, regardless of what the world throws our way in terms of perceptions, biases, and double standards. How do we, as women, stay in our own bodies, hold fast to our own truths, and not view ourselves through the eyes and expectations of others in the world-at-large? Who do you choose to be? What life do you want to lead?

In this third episode of our Women Conversation series, Reboot Co-founder Ali Schultz joins fellow coaches Ann Mehl, Heather Jassy, and Miriam Meima for an exploration of how imposter syndrome grips women, the masks they feel they need to wear, and all that gets in the way of women feeling their inherent enoughness.
