When you accept a role, you are prepared to commit your time, energy, and expertise in exchange for certain rewards like income, professional growth, and feeding your passion. But what if the expectation you had coming into the role is not what the role turned out to be? Do you “fake it ‘til you make it?” Your ego is telling you, “I should want this.” But your gut feeling is telling you something is wrong. This is the time to ask what’s really going on.
If you find yourself feeling negative about your work, unfocused, procrastinating, downplaying your achievements…if you start to question why you get up in the morning, it may be time to accept that you need to make a change. It’s time to figure out whether you are in the right role experiencing imposter syndrome or if you’re in the wrong role and you’re actually an imposter. On this team episode, Cindy & Kate discuss how to know if you’re in the right role & the truth behind imposter syndrome.

I’ve been offered the job! It was great having the opportunity to speak with you prior to my interview. It enabled me to highlight my strengths as part of the conversation and I was able to be clear about my enthusiasm for opportunities to be proactive versus reactive. I also highlighted my desire to provide positive individual experiences. Our discussion not only assisted me in the interview but it also helped to increase my confidence!
I think I'm done toning it down for somebody else. And I feel like I'm going to have a lot of space to be myself to bring like my best whole self. And that it's work that I really care about. I feel like it's work that needs to be done and I'm excited that I get to do it. One of the things that I feel like you guys do really well is to keep us focused on what's right for us!
