Imposter Syndrome at Work? Coach Monique Can Help!

What Is Imposter Syndrome and How Do You Know If You Have It? 


Imposter Syndrome is a curious sensation that many of us experience, often without even realizing its name. It's that nagging sense of self-doubt, like an unwelcome shadow following us around. Picture this: even after achieving notable success or receiving accolades, a person feels like a fraud. They might think they merely got lucky or that others are overestimating their abilities. This isn't a fleeting moment of humility but a consistent pattern of questioning one's worth and fearing being "found out" as an imposter. Common characteristics of Imposter Syndrome include:

  • Lack of confidence or self-doubt

  • Intense fear of failure

  • Low self-esteem

  • Crediting luck to your success

  • Guilt or shame over even small mistakes (perfectionism)

  • Feeling isolated from your coworkers

  • Setting impossibly high standards for yourself

A Universal Challenge Across All Professions

Nearly two-thirds of today’s professionals have experienced Imposter Syndrome at some point in their careers. These numbers have been on the rise since more people began working at home during the pandemic. Another interesting fact about Imposter Syndrome is that it doesn't discriminate. Whether you're a seasoned executive delivering boardroom presentations or a student acing their exams, these feelings of inadequacy can creep in at any time. In addition, if you are experiencing imposter feelings, it means you are a high achiever… Slackers don’t have Imposter Syndrome. And while you might assume it's more prevalent in one profession or field, the reality is that it spans across multiple domains. Teachers, artists, doctors, tech professionals, you name it - many have felt they didn't quite "belong" despite their accomplishments. It's a universal sentiment, reminding us that success doesn't always shield us from self-doubt.

10 Steps to Overcome Imposter Syndrome

The good news is that Imposter Syndrome can be conquered. If you’ve been searching for ways to overcome Imposter Syndrome or wondering how to tackle this daunting feeling, Coach Monique has some valuable insights for you. Here are 10 helpful tips for overcoming Imposter Syndrome at work:

  1. Recognize and Acknowledge: The first step in overcoming any problem is acknowledging it. Understand that imposter feelings are just that – feelings, not facts.

  2. Track Your Achievements: Create a list of all your achievements and revisit them regularly. This will serve as a reminder of your abilities.

  3. Talk About It: Sometimes, merely sharing how you feel can make a significant difference. Working with Coach Monique is a safe space to have open conversations, get objective feedback, and gain the tools necessary to overcome Imposter Syndrome.

  4. Focus on Value: Instead of focusing on your fears, focus on the value you bring. Every time you think you’re not good enough, remind yourself of the unique perspective and skills you contribute.

  5. Educate Yourself: Knowing what Imposter Syndrome is and how to overcome it can be empowering. By understanding its roots, you can better tackle it.

  6. Set Realistic Expectations: Perfection is actually a negative goal because it so often requires outside circumstances that are not in our control to align. Even if we do experience fleeting perfection, the definition of life is change, so circumstances will inevitably change. Set achievable goals for yourself and celebrate small victories along the way.

  7. Seek Support: Having someone guide you can be invaluable. While it's not therapy, coaching can give you a clearer picture of your path and your worth.

  8. Accept Praise Gracefully: When someone compliments you, believe them. They’re not just being polite; they genuinely see the value in your work.

  9. Reframe Your Thoughts: When negative thoughts creep in, challenge and reframe them. Convert “I don’t deserve this” to “I know how to do this.”

  10. Remember, Everyone Feels This Way Sometimes: You’re not alone. Many successful people have felt like imposters at some point in their career.
