Episode in a Tweet: We all have self-doubt and sometimes even imposter syndrome. But we all deserve a seat at the table. That’s why it’s important to push through these feelings and claim your power.
Background: Kelli Thompson is on a mission to help women advance to, and make an impact in, the rooms where decisions are made. During our fun and enlightening conversation, Kelli shares that oftentimes, we label self-doubt as imposter syndrome and how that label can feel overwhelming. We all have self-doubt, and it can be used to propel us forward. Kelli believes that it’s important to have organizational conversations about the systemic issues at play that perpetuate imposter feelings and address them, even if they aren’t easy conversations.
Kelli and I share stories about being told we are too aggressive (me) or too direct (Kelli) and how we moved through these labels to create success. We talk about how to turn your flaws into superpowers and why it’s so important to use your unique talents every single day. Kelli says, “Not only will you benefit in terms of your own personal happiness and energy, but others will, too, because they are counting on your unique calling.”
I know you’ll love this interview with Kelli. I can’t wait to have her back on the show, once her book has launched.
