Not good enough, insecure, anxious, afraid of being found out?

Many people have these feelings as they go about their work. Even when, intellectually, you know you have experience , you are still haunted by the worry “Will they find out that I’m not good enough and I shouldn’t be doing this?”.

This feels bad. It’s frustrating. It has some very negative effects:

  • We try to hide, we hold back, we don’t volunteer answers... 
  • We let others take the lead, afraid to step up ourselves. This often stops us taking the roles we deserve and makes us look ineffective. 
  • We miss out on opportunities and are overlooked for promotion. It’s just exhausting and so frustrating.
  • When we do “volunteer” or can’t avoid the spotlight, we over-prepare, work really hard, over-deliver on even the most simple tasks and almost burn out in the process

I get it! I've been there for much of my adult life...

I was an unlikely candidate to get an education, the first in my family to get qualifications and go to university - I felt like a fish out of water, as if I didn't belong.

I passed my exams and started my career - I just kept wondering how long it would be before they figured out I was a fraud.

Even while I was being promoted and establishing my reputation I felt as if I was making it up as I was going along.

Only when I learned about Imposter Syndrome did I realise where these feelings came from!

Initially it was hard to believe that feeling like a fraud didn't mean I was a fraud - in fact, people who feel like Imposters often excel and are leaders in their profession.

Running workshops for the last 10 years has allowed me to share tools to overcome imposter feelings. You can own your strengths and talents with confidence and humility. You can effectively manage your Inner Critic (it's your ally, you don't really want it to go away!).

  • Understand how your Imposter works
  • Learn to value your achievements
  • Develop more helpful thought patterns

Margaret Collins

“Before, challenge was a drain. I was terrified the world was constantly judging me, scared of not achieving and tired. Now I feel more energetic and more positive about work. I value work and relationships more and I have a lot more fun. Above all, I'm proud of myself. Truly. ”

Margaret Collins

“I started in a new role and during my first meeting with my manager thought "There's no way I'll get all this done". Normally I'd go along with things, swallow what I wanted to say, be a people pleaser and feel resentful later. Instead I spoke up!”

Are you ready to FINALLY do something about your Imposter feelings?

Meet Your Coach 
Dr Margaret Collins 
(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 doubts.

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 learning to drive a car, this skill set can be yours.

Best Selling Author
Dr Margaret Collins best-selling author: 

"Beyond Imposter Syndrome".

"To journey beyond imposter syndrome we need courage to know ourselves honestly as we tell our own stories and also compassion to treat ourselves gently as we grow. Moving beyond imposter syndrome doesn't mean we walk out perfect, shiny and bullet-proof. It does mean that we accept the truth of who we are, secure in the knowledge that we are enough. "

"An inspirational and strategic approach to overcoming your inner critic! I’m a counsellor and I will be recommending this book to my clients." Charl

"It is written with clarity and the strategies really do work. An excellent book extremely well written." Brian

"If you want to learn about how to be more confident in your work and personal interactions this is well worth reading and putting into practice. It avoids the ‘padding’ so many books include. Straightforward explanations with notes and reminders on possible next steps.
A book that is accessible and written in plain langauage with everyday examples to illustrate points effectively. I would have been interested to read a little more about how Imposter Syndrome impacts on personal and family relationships but the author is clear about her focus being primarily on work related situations. I enjoyed the tone and no-nonsense approach of the book which allowed the message to come through with clarity." Lesley 

Available in Paperback and on Kindle.
