I don't even know how to deal with my own self-doubt and imposter syndrome. How can I possibly help my team members with theirs?
Right now, nobody expects you to know how to deal with it. But you’re about to discover that it’s so much easier than you could imagine. Tech and engineering companies are famous for their piss-and-vinegar, change-the-world attitudes. But under that cocky veneer, there are a lot of people – up to 85% in fact – who quietly doubt that they have what it takes. The good news is that, by leveraging the incredible power of your left-brain logic, you and your team will discover that self-doubt and imposter syndrome are nothing but habitual mental patterns that have nothing to do with reality and can be easily replaced. After this remarkable one-day program, you won’t have to deal with yours or theirs anymore.
Self-doubt and imposter syndrome are the topics nobody talks about in tech and engineering. Why should I open this can of worms?
They’re the not-talked-about topics because nobody knows HOW to talk about and then eliminate them. But we’re all smart enough to know that not talking about it doesn’t make it go away. You need to open the can of worms because it’s HURTING your team’s performance. We all like to use the phrase, “High Performance Team” but how can it be high performance if even one of its members is experiencing self-doubt or imposter syndrome? When we open this can of worms, you’ll discover that it wasn’t scary or hard to deal with after all. So we’ll deal with it and eliminate it from ever affecting your team again.
It can be embarrassing for someone to admit to self-doubt and imposter syndrome. It makes me look weak and ineffective, especially in the high-stakes world of tech and engineering. How will this be any different?
Traditional approaches to overcoming self-doubt and imposter syndrome focus on trying to fix something that’s wrong with you. They offer band-aid fixes for the symptoms – “Try not to compare yourself to others, Practice self-compassion, Find validation from within…” Good luck with that!
In sharp contrast, this unique, confidence-building approach confirms that there is NOTHING wrong with you. It builds on the incredible skills and talents you already have and unlocks your innate skills and strengths. You are gifted with powerful, left-brain logic and you will learn how to leverage that strength to eliminate the erroneous beliefs about yourself. You will get total confidence that is built on the strengths and skills you already possess and the confirmation that there isn’t now, and never has been anything wrong with you.
These are deep-rooted issues. How can a one-day program give sustainable results?
This is not about learning a new skill that will require endless practice. This program gives you a completely new way of understanding yourself that will permanently conquer self-doubt and imposter syndrome. Because you will be using a skill that you already trust (your strong, left-brain reasoning) to accomplish a right-brain, non-reasoning goal, the results will be permanent. You will simply tap into an ability that you already possess, but has been locked by early, erroneous influences. You will unlock an ability that is already inside you, so there’s no need to keep learning more. When you learn to leverage the power of your logic you will overcome self-doubt and imposter syndrome instantly and permanently.
Some people spend years in therapy trying to deal with this. Why doesn’t that work?
Traditional therapies don’t recognize or respect the incredible power of your left-brain logic. This unique, no B.S. life-changing experience cuts straight to the chase and is specifically designed for highly intelligent, ambitious, left-brainers like you and your team in tech and engineering. There is no medication, hypnosis, therapy, or touchy-feely hugging, just science-backed methods that instantly release self-doubt, reset mental patterns, and lock in new neural pathways that let you recognize your own, innate confidence. This intensive, one-day experience will show you how to unleash your powerful left-brain thinking to overcome this right brain challenge and is guaranteed to conquer your self-doubt and imposter syndrome.
Who will be working with me and my team?
David Stone, the Founder of I-Fearless and the program creator, will work directly and in person with you and your team. David has been coaching left-brain professionals in these kinds of challenging topics for almost forty years. He’s known for making tough topics accessible – especially the ones that step outside our comfort zones. Additionally, he experienced his own struggles with anxiety and self-doubt. (read David’s story here) He has distilled those lessons-learned, plus incorporated everything he learned and used to overcome his own anxieties into this ground-breaking program. David personally guarantees that your team will eliminate any self-doubt and imposter syndrome and enjoy the process along the way.
What would make my team a good candidate for this program?
Here are some signs that indicate this program is a good fit for your team now:
- You know that one or more team members are experiencing self-doubt or imposter syndrome
- You sense that you’re not getting the best that everyone has to offer
- The team doesn’t seem to be firing on all cylinders
- The team is relatively new, and the members haven’t been working together for long
- Your old team is working or about to work on a new product
- The team has fallen into a rut and needs to refresh itself
- You’re not sure that the team culture is as healthy as it should be
Building a strong culture is one of the keys to a successful product development team. How will this program contribute to that?
The best teams always include a few key features of their cultures: Respect and Trust, Great Communication, and Mutual Feedback. But none of these are possible when your team includes members – up to 85%!! – who hold back because they doubt their abilities, or they feel like an imposter who’s going to be found out at any moment. When we eliminate the self-doubt and imposter syndrome, EVERY member of your team is fully primed to go all-in and contribute to the strong culture that will lead to success. Only then can the whole be greater than the sum of its parts.
It probably won’t work for us. It’s in our DNA and we’re stuck with it. We’re left-brained introverts. It’s just who we are.
This is a science-backed process that makes use of your already powerful, left-brain reasoning abilities to overcome a right-brain challenge. The process has been specifically designed to work for highly intelligent, ambitious, left brainers in tech, science, and engineering, just like you. You and your team are an elite mastermind of highly intelligent, ambitious, left brainers in tech and engineering. If you are determined to conquer self-doubt and imposter syndrome, and if you follow the process, you are GUARANTEED to be successful.
We have no patience for rah-rah optimists who tell us to “just do it.”
Good! Then you’ve found the right place. The problem with traditional approaches is that they’re full of advice like, “Try not to compare yourself to others, practice self-compassion, find validation from within…” That’s just B.S. because it simply tells you to stop doubting yourself. Thanks for the great advice!!
In this program there is no B.S., no “touchy-feely,” and no warm group hugs. It is a science-backed process that makes use of your already powerful, left-brain reasoning abilities to overcome a perceived right-brain challenge. Each participant will be walked through a personalized analysis to focus the method on their unique experience with self-doubt and imposter syndrome. They’ll use science-based, performance metrics to document their progress. They’ll get unconditional respect for their personality, talents, accomplishments, and approach to success.
There WILL, however, be high-fives to celebrate success
I don’t want to put myself and my team through the discomfort and embarrassment of sucking at something. This will be a painful and uncomfortable process because we’ll have to face and work through our fears.
This is not group therapy where you’ll have to break down and confess your deepest secrets. In fact, this method confirms that there is NOTHING wrong with you. It takes the incredible skills and talents you and your team already have, then unlocks and builds on your innate strengths. You will learn to replace erroneous beliefs about yourself with the truth that you are already fully capable. You will get an easy, comfortable, and enjoyable experience while adding an invaluable understanding about yourself that will take your career and success to the next level without any embarrassment or discomfort. You will be shocked at how easy, comfortable, and enjoyable the experience is.
Self-doubt and imposter syndrome confuse me because my team and I are so much smarter than this – it should be easy. We should be able to use reason to overcome this.
Conquering self-doubt and imposter syndrome has nothing to do with intelligence and it isn’t some kind of failure in you. It’s simply a matter of resetting your mind on this topic. We all have limiting beliefs and blind spots that we’re unable to get past on our own. Allowing these to continue will limit growth, stunt success, and get in the way of achieving the goals you’ve set for yourself and your team. The process uses science-based techniques to let you clearly see your blind spots and easily and quickly let go of your limiting beliefs. Self-doubt is not your problem, your beliefs about self-doubt are. This program will show you how to easily and quickly change your beliefs. You weren’t born doubting yourself, you learned it somewhere along the way. You learned it. Now you can unlearn it.
A training session is one thing – what do we do when we’re back in the real world? What if we forget what we’ve learned and fall back into our old ways?
The process you learn during this powerful experience will become a permanent part of your tool set. You will never again be able to feel self-doubt or fraudulent, because the new mindset you have learned will have established new neural pathways that make you feel comfortable, confident, and capable. The confidence-building techniques you’ll learn are ones you will be able to use for the rest of your life, instantly bringing you to a place of calm confidence. To paraphrase Yoda, “You won’t be trying, you’ll just be doing”
What kinds of teams are eligible?
This program is specifically designed for product development teams in tech and engineering with up to ten team members.
How much does it cost?
The fee for this one-day team experience is $6,997 plus expenses. Expensive? Maybe. But not nearly as pricey as the opportunity cost you and your team pay if you allow self-doubt and imposter syndrome to continue sabotaging your success. And don’t forget – if, for some reason you’re not satisfied, you will be refunded 100% of your fees.
