Limiting beliefs and their resulting self-doubt most often indicate Imposter Syndrome, a pervasive internalized feeling that you are not skilled enough for the work you are doing or aspire to do. This results in you feeling that you don't belong in your workplace, in your role as caregiver, and in many other aspects of your life. Ironically, this self-devaluation is more commonly experienced by high achievers, and it flourishes in fields that require specialized training, so it is no wonder that it hits the legal profession hard. Although most people have experienced this phenomenon in at least one aspect of their lives, they do not talk about it, as it involves a fear of being exposed as a fraud.
This self-doubt is very addressable, and by learning more about Imposter Syndrome and by implementing certain practical techniques, you can more objectively and accurately assess yourself, step confidently into your true value, and bring your best self to your life with comfort and authenticity.

Week 1: Owning Your Thoughts - Out with the Old!
You will better understand how and when self-doubt manifests for you and why lawyers experience it at a higher incidence. Once you are able to anticipate and identify self-doubt and Imposter Syndrome within yourself, you will be able to explore new, more accurate ways of thinking about yourself that better serve you and allow you to feel more confident and comfortable.
Week 2: Owning Your Strengths
New, more accurate ways of thinking require you to look at all the evidence about your abilities, skills, and traits. Culturally, we are pressed to minimize our strengths and accomplishments, and this practice leads to self-devaluation. In Week 2, you will learn to honor your strengths and accomplishments and establish a more balanced view of yourself and your capabilities.
Week 3: Owning Your Presence
How you speak and how your carry yourself physically can have a tremendous impact on how confident you feel and how others perceive you. In Week 3, you will learn how to adjust your language and better embody your best self physically in order to establish a powerful presence.

Having identified your devaluing thoughts about yourself and having practiced tactics to harvest and embody your successes, you now will get to capitalize on your lawyering skills to replace your old, negative ways of thinking about yourself with more balanced and objective thoughts about yourself and your ability to grow.
Week 5: Owning Your Future
With your confidence-building toolbox full, you will learn the psychology behind habit-building in order to transform your tactics into habits and ignite a lasting transformation from anxiety and self-doubt to comfort and confidence. You will complete the course equipped with a detailed action plan, the belief and skills to attain it, and a community to support your progress.
