Build confidence, beat imposter syndrome

Our news section today is a heartfelt chat about the impact a podcast episode had on all of us. Find out what that episode is, how it helped us identify the things we can change and what we’ve resolved to do about the things we can’t.

We revisit our thoughts on imposter syndrome for our big topic this week. It’s a subject that’s been in the spotlight online recently, giving us the opportunity to reflect on how our own views have changed since we last talked them over for the very first episode of Calm Edged Rebels.

How can we stop people using imposter syndrome as a label to limit their own development? How can we identify the people in our community who can help us develop our confidence, or who actually trigger our imposter syndrome more? 

We share our experience of consciously building our own confidence and getting past our own inner imposters.

Find out why we think blanket approaches to combating imposter syndrome don’t necessarily work and what top tips we have for anyone who feels they want to develop greater self confidence.

Throughout the conversation we refer to the following books, articles and reports:
