Meet Your Coach
Dr Margaret Collins
Former Academic, Coach, Trainer and recovering Imposter.
For many years I was a very successful senior academic, my colleagues trusted me, respected my work. Me, I was the one who had the doubts and insecurity… did I really belong, was I contributing at the highest level, making a difference and being counted.
I trained as a coach to develop my skills as a manager – only then did I learn how Imposter Syndrome feelings contributed to my strange lack of confidence.
I learned that I was not alone. Doubting myself was a product of unhelpful thought processes (and a little unconscious bias!).
Literally, change your thoughts and you can change your life. Add new skills and it can feel like everything is different. And like driving a car, this skill set can be learned
