Today we will talk about Confidence. Have you felt at any point in your career that you were underqualified for a role? Or perhaps you fear that at any moment someone will find out that you don’t really deserve that position?

Impostor Syndrome is very real and frequent among many of us. My guest has focused his career studying this and providing solutions for people on how to beat self-doubt. Dr. Richard Orbe-Austin is a psychologist and career coach (https://www.dynamictransitionsllp.com/). He and with his partner Dr. Lisa Orbe-Austin wrote the book Own Your Greatness which addresses specific techniques on overcoming impostor syndrome and gaining confidence. They also have a great Ted Talk (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=u2zbcZBI0Do) on how it affected their own lives

In this episode we talk about some of those techniques in the book, the misconceptions about impostor syndrome and how you can take cation today.
