Is Imposter Syndrome Holding Your Best Employee Back?

blog Apr 28, 2021

No doubt you have heard of the term ‘imposter syndrome’ before, but have you ever heard of it when it comes to our teams, our employees, amongst our staff? Most commonly as business owners, entrepreneurs and leaders we might talk amongst ourselves about this feeling which we refer to as imposter syndrome, but I don’t hear business owners discussing this as something which might be impacting their staff.

 

Before we consider how this might play out within our teams, let’s first understand what specifically it is we’re referring to here.

 

The term Imposter Syndrome was coined in 1978 by Psychologists Pauline Rose Clance and Suzanne Imes who explored the idea that people with this feel like they have only succeeded due to luck, not because of their talent or qualifications. The Oxford Dictionary succinctly defines it as the persistent inability to believe that one's success is deserved or has been legitimately achieved as a result of...

Identifying Imposter Syndrome in Your Team
28:24
 
Hello and welcome to Episode 59 of the People Powered Business Podcast!
 
Today we had a great discussion about a topic that we haven’t covered on the podcast before – Imposter Syndrome.
 
Now many of us as entrepreneurs, leaders, business owners and managers may have come up against imposter syndrome ourselves before, but what about our team? Do we know how to spot it and identify it within our team? I think it’s something we often haven’t thought about, or wouldn’t be sure how to identify it and help the employee overcome this.
 
I recently became aware of the work of Dr. Valerie Young, an expert in this field, who has identified 5 different types of imposter syndrome that may occur in our teams. She speaks and writes about how to identify these and what you might be able to do to assist employees in overcoming this imposter feeling.
 
In todays episode we unpacked the five types and Dr. Young’s suggestions for helping...

Celebrating 15 Years - Learning to Juggle

blog Apr 21, 2021

As I have shared in recent weeks, I have spent some time over the last month about the fact that I recently celebrated 15 years of being in the world of entrepreneurship and business. And WOW what a ride it has been!

 

The things I thought I knew but didn’t, the things I had learnt that I never thought I’d need to use that came in handy, the wins, challenges, fun and hard stuff. There is no doubt that being in business is not dissimilar riding a roller coaster most of the time – except you’ve got the controls in your hands.

 

In recent weeks I have shared the key lessons that I have really taken on about leaderships and teams – because hey, that’s what I’m all about, but today is a little different. Today is about the real lessons, the life lessons, the things most people don’t talk about, but I’m going to.

 

Learning to juggle has been imperative, and I’m a pretty good multitasker naturally. But the juggle...

15 Years Part 3 - Learning to Juggle
28:41
 
Today's episode is part 3 of a 3 part series – where I am sharing 15 of the most important lessons I’ve learnt in my 15 years in business.
 
Today we focused on the art of the juggle – the juggle that is business, but also the juggle of being an entrepreneur and business owner, as well as real human – a parent, a partner, a family member and a friend.
 
Here are my 5 top lessons (although I’ve learnt many many more):
  • Work life balance is bullshit;
  • No one in your life cares how hard it is, surround yourself by people who get it;
  • Self care is not selfish;
  • Stop being a martyr;
  • Drop the guilt.
 
As mentioned I also have an invitation for you, to join us in our free Facebook Group, HR Support for Australian Businesses.

Celebrating 15 Years – Triumphant Teams

blog Apr 14, 2021

As I shared last week, recently I was reflecting on the fact that it has been 15 years since I threw in the towel on a stable, well paid, leadership position with a multi national organisation to set up my own business, and so the Footprint brand was born.

 

Whilst I may have been anything but the text book approach, I knew what I wanted to do and just went head first in. Whilst I had some skills, plenty of grit and a no nonsense approach to success being inevitable, I can’t say that there hasn’t been hurdles to overcome along the way.

 

One of the key lessons I’ve learnt in these 15 years is the importance of your team – your employees, the contractors and suppliers you work with, the mentors and advisors you seek support from and everyone else that is part of this journey.

 

Now I’d been building high performing, successful teams since I was a teenager, so this wasn’t news to me, but there are certainly some lessons that I have...

Hello and welcome to Episode 57 of the People Powered Business Podcast!

Today's episode is part 2 of a 3 part series – where I am sharing 15 of the most important lessons I’ve learnt in my 15 years in business.

Today we focused on teams, specifically the most impactful lessons I have learnt about building talented, triumphant and winning teams.

Here are my 5 top lessons (although I’ve learnt many many more):

  • You can’t outrun a bad hire;
  • If you don’t expect too much from them you might not be let down;
  • Trust is everything;
  • They need boundaries, and you need to uphold them;
  • They need a few key things from us, so listen in hard.


Also mentioned in this episode was episode 29 “If you don’t expect too much from me, you might not be let down”

Celebrating 15 Years – Lessons on Leadership

blog Apr 07, 2021

Recently I was reflecting on the fact that it has been 15 years since I quit my stable, well paid, leadership position with a multi national organisation to, within 7 days, set up my own business, and the journey of The Footprint Group took it’s first step into the world.

 

Whilst I certainly don’t think the way I decided to go about this entrepreneurial journey is a text book example of solid business planning, it was the only way for me. I was youngish, impulsive, stubborn and had been dreaming of doing this for the longest time. Why hadn’t I done it before? The usual story – the people around me thought it was risky, uncertain, crazy, against the grain.

 

But in a period of 3 days where the timing was like a perfect storm to make this decision a no brainer.

 

So I resign, spend the week of my notice period setting up business names, company structures, getting logo’s designed, preparing a full policies and procedures document, finding...
