Imposter Syndrome

(and silencing the inner critic)

In this episode I talk to Marisa Santoro – a former Wall Street IT executive, now a career leadership trainer and professional career coach – about Imposter Syndrome, a limiting belief that causes you to think your success has been some kinds of happy accident and that you’ll soon be found out.


Marisa shares tangible ways you can be your authentic self while silencing the inner critic.

From there, she shares hundreds of exercises, activities, and prompts to help readers thoroughly explore each chapter.
