Imposter Syndrome: Caroline Flanagan and Sajna Rahman

The Connected Leadership Podcast

In a fascinating conversation, Andy Lopata explores the concept of Imposter Syndrome with Caroline Flanagan and Sanja Rahman. The belief that any success you have, where you are now, is all down to luck and not your own ability. The fear of being exposed as the fraud you think you are. Sanja takes this a step further seeing the Imposter Monster, the inner critic appearing at important moments in career growth. To overcome this you need reminders (receipts) of success and a support network. Imposter Syndrome is more destructive than self-doubt. Caroline and Sanja have both experienced being women of colour in a white corporate world and found the turning point is belief in yourself; when you go from being the only one in the room, to being the first in the room. Imposter Syndrome doesn't go away, but you find tools to manage it. Leaders need to recognize the struggle and encourage the conversation in order to help.

Beating The Imposter Syndrome with Caroline Flanagan #81

The Nicole Bremner Podcast

EP81: “Imposter syndrome is that feeling that you’re a fraud, that whatever success or achievements that you’ve had are down to luck and the fear that any minute now someone is going to tap you on the shoulder and expose you as the fraud you think you are."Imposter Syndrome can be totally debilitating but it can also be used as a force for good. In this episode of the Nicole Bremner podcast, I explore this subject with my guest, inspirational keynote speaker, transformational coach, author and fellow podcast host, Caroline Flanagan. Caroline was the only black student in an all-white school, was one of a tiny minority of students of colour at Cambridge University and one of the only people of colour at two of the world’s most prestigious law firms. She now works with some of the most influential international global organisations including Latham & Watkins, Kirkland and Ellis, Morgan Stanley, Google and Shell, to increase the number of women and people of colour in leadership.Caroline talks about her new book Be the First: People of Colour, Imposter Syndrome and the Struggle to Succeed in a White World and how she has used Imposter Syndrome to fuel her own success and improve diversity in the workplace.   “The bit that I want to help us all individually repair is the perception of that aspect of ourselves as a weakness, when actually that is the root, the seeds, of our strength.”We also speak about: Marginalisation of minority groups, particularly people of colour, and the struggle for better diversity in the workplace and beyondTerminology surrounding ethnic minority groups – what language should we use?Meritocracy and systemic bias.The ethnicity pay and ‘stay’ gap.The secrets to balancing a career and family explored in Caroline’s first book Baby Proof Your Career.
