Braver Stronger Smarter

Coaches all over the world are working with people who secretly feel like impostors in their own roles...
...we can help you to help them realise and live into their potential.

The impostor phenomenon (aka impostor syndrome) is rampant. As a professional coach, particularly one working with high achievers, it's almost certain you'll be working with people who secretly fear being called out as a fake and fear the inevitable horror of being found out.
You'll be familiar with people telling of stress, anxiety and frustration associated with fear of failure, fear of success and lack of confidence - often despite a track record of achievement.
Coach Braver Stronger Smarter is designed to help coaches recognise the tell tale signs of the impostor phenomenon in clients and help them to achieve responses to it.
Working on a personal level, but recognising how workplaces can fuel impostor experiences, the programme leverages your own capabilities and methods as a coach to achieve greater impact from the coaching relationship.

"In my mind, I know I can take on the world, but I’m terrified someone will find out I’m faking it."
