According to a 2020 review, 9%-82% of people experience a form of imposter syndrome throughout their lifetime – and that number increases in the first few weeks of starting a new job.
In fact, it can affect anyone. With the rapidly changing landscape of B2B marketing, it can be easy as a marketing leader to feel like a fraud and have a fear of being discovered. Many marketers feel it’s challenging to internalize success.
Chedva Kleinhandler, CEO and Founder of Rooms and Words, gets radically transparent in this episode about her unconventional career path. Starting as a translator in an ultra-orthodox Jewish community, she became a wildly successful, award-winning serial founder, featured on Forbes, BBC, Wired, Thrive Global, and more.
Chedva also candidly unravels how she tackled imposter syndrome throughout her career, and what she is doing now as a leader to ensure her team overcomes any feelings of fraud. She even reveals the questions she asks her team to help get them out of their comfort zone and into their “Genius Zone” (originally coined by Gay Hendricks in his book, The Big Leap) in order to unlock their highest potential.
For Chedva, there is no room for imposter syndrome! Yet, she does acknowledge that it’s a completely normal feeling to have at any stage of your career.
The cure? You’ll have to listen to find out!
Hot Topics of this Episode Include:
- The zone of genius and how to unlock it – both as a leader in technology and for your entire team; how to steer clear of the comfort zone
- The cure for imposter syndrome as a marketing leader – and the secrets to staying confident in what you bring to the table
