S7E5 - Meeting Our Inner Imposter with Compassion, with Tanya Geisler

the Henny Flynn podcast

Tanya came to her life work as a leadership coach after years in an outwardly successful but ultimately unsatisfying career in advertising. She suffered, a lot, from a myriad of “not good enough, not smart enough, not ready” beliefs. Any success she enjoyed she chalked up to someone else having made a mistake. She thought it was just a matter of time before they found out she was a fake. It took the passing of her mother to get her “unstuck”. After she left, she heard — really heard — her lifelong mantra for the first time: Don’t Postpone JoyIn this deep and broad conversation, Tanya unpacks Imposter Complex for us. She shares how it manifests and what can sit beneath it. This is a RICH and rewarding discussion. Tanya is passionate about her work and delivers it all with love and humanity.I truly loved speaking with her - and I think you'll love listening.To connect with Tanya or listen to her TEDx talk...

The Tiffany Han Show (formerly Raise Your Hand Say Yes)

"I'm not good enough. I'm not ready. I don't belong here." These are just a few of the things the Imposter Complex would have us believe (yes! there's a name for that!) and this week I'm thrilled to have life coach and Imposter Complex expert Tanya Geisler back on the podcast to talk all about the Imposter Complex. In this vintage episode, you'll hear what it is, how it shows up, what it means if you experience these things (it's good, I promise!) and how you can move beyond it to get all those things you want for your life (looking at you money, sex, and freedom!). What She Said: "Every great thing that we've ever done has been by feeling that fear and doing it anyway."  "The ego wants to want more than it wants to get." "We have to have areas in our life where there has to be relief—where you can just rest and not have to be the best at things." Those Timestamps 03:27 - What is imposter complex?

EP06: Being “Ready Enough” to Examine Your Message Through an Intersectional Lens with Tanya Geisler

Podcast Ally

Starting a podcast is hard enough, without intentionally pushing yourself well beyond the limits of your comfort zone. But that’s exactly what Tanya Geisler did when she launched the Ready Enough Podcast. As a certified Leadership Coach, TEDxWomen speaker and writer, Tanya is the pre-eminent authority on the Imposter Complex. Her clients include best-selling authors, public speakers, and rockstar motivators. With credentials like those, it might be hard to believe that Tanya's podcast grew out of some tough questions she didn't feel ready to answer.  Instead of shying away from those questions, Tanya turned them into a learning opportunity for herself and her audience. In this episode of Podcast Ally, I talked to her to find out what it was like hosting a podcast, when you know going into each conversation that you were going to be learning from your guests -- and possibly getting things wrong. In our conversation, Tanya shares: The tough realization that led her to start the Ready Enough podcast Why she felt the need to step up as a coach and a leader to better understand at the intersectional identities that impact a person's experience with her subject matter What to do when you realize that you don't have the expertise to adequately help someone who approaches you Navigating sensitive topics, and getting comfortable with the fact that you WILL make mistakes Please check out the Ready Enough Podcast at tanyageisler.com or wherever you listen to podcasts.
