The imposter in charge with Mike Kitko
Play • 32 min

Have you ever found yourself in a position at work where people look to you for advice and support, and you feel vastly under-qualified for it? A feeling that you are not capable of successfully performing your role, and a fear that your co-workers will find out you are not equipped for the position.

This feeling of inadequacy is often referred to as imposter syndrome. Imposter syndrome is driven by 3 key factors: inadequacy, insecurity, and insignificance.

Mike Kitko is no stranger to dealing with imposter syndrome. Mike spent his time in the corporate world running from this imposter syndrome, which ultimately led to a career and personal meltdown. However, Mike now tells his story to educate others that they too can beat their imposter syndrome.

Mike explains the three most important things to help you get over imposter syndrome:

  1. Create intentional time to work on yourself
  2. Your morning is your day. Take the time in the morning to get right in your mind, emotions, and body
  3. Put yourself first

Give this episode a listen to learn how to silence that little voice in your head that keeps telling you that you aren’t good enough.
