The Key to Overcoming Imposter Syndrome

The Key to Overcoming Imposter Syndrome

One of the obstacles I had to overcome in my leadership journey

That I still have to be aware of to this day.

I was promoted very quickly in my career.

I had two things I was facing

I was young
My peers had years of experience over me.

And I did the thing that a lot of us do

I compared myself to them.

The skills they possessed vs. the skills I possessed.

The knowledge they had vs. the knowledge I had.

And because of that, I created a narrative

I wasn’t smart enough or skilled enough.

And sometimes that voice left me questioning if I was “good enough” to be in that role.

All of those narratives resulted in me not asking for help.

And by doing so, I spent time and energy trying to figure it out on my own.

Which delayed moving projects along as quickly as they could have.

Working endless hours that in reality, I didn’t have to.

All I had to do was be vulnerable.

Ask for help.

It took me years to start putting this into action.

What I realized was that when I started asking for help, I opened the door for them to do the same thing.

We were a team.

Whether it was my peers or my team.

They needed me, just as much as I needed them.

To this day, I constantly have to be aware of this.

Asking myself, “Am I spending my time on something that someone can teach me much more quickly”?

And make the conscious choice to ask for help.

To give myself that time and energy back.
