Kicking Imposter Syndrome
Are you in a position where you want to be in a leadership role but are not sure what you can do to get there?
Do you see managers who just don’t know what they’re doing and are constantly asking you to do their job?
Do you see new roles and positions being posted in companies you’d like to work for but you’re unsure if your qualifications match their requirements?
Do you count yourself out before even trying?
If you so, I need you to stop immediately. Here’s why:
You’re leaving money on the table
You’re not being strategic
So instead of counting yourself out, start becoming strategic on what you can do to level up and get what you deserve.
Here’s 3 things you can do today:
Be clear on what you want: Write it out. I’m not talking about goal setting. I’m talking about writing out what you want for your career. What is your ultimate position? What does it look like? How does it feel to be in that position?
Write out your ultimate job description: Again, write it down. If you had a magic wand, what would your ultimate job description look like? What are the requirements?
Assess where you are. Do you already have some, if not all, of the qualifications for your ultimate position? If not, what will it take for you to get there?
