Are You Hungry To Make A Bigger Difference In The World?
But Secretly Suspect You're Getting In Your Own Way?
“Changing the world isn't so much about what you do, as about who you allow yourself to become.”
Clare Josa | 8x Author | Speaker | Leadership Mentor
Since 2003, I have specialised in helping business leaders and high-achievers to finally clear the secret self-sabotage thoughts and behaviours caused by Imposter Syndrome... along with other self-imposed glass ceilings - the stuff that goes deeper than mindset or confidence, but which gets in the way of you making the difference you really want to make in the world.
I don’t do ‘sticky plasters’ or 'coping strategies'. When you work with me, I teach you the techniques you need to create lifelong transformations in ways that are fast, fun and forever.
An expert in the neuroscience and psychology of performance, my original training as an engineer means my approach is grounded in practical common sense, creating breakthroughs not burnout.
But it's not all left-brained.
I'm also a certified yoga and meditation teacher (with two books on the subject), so I weave in demystified ancient wisdom to help you change your life in less time than it takes to make a cup of tea. My clients love it - they call it 'engineer-approved woo-woo' - and tell me it finally shifts the blocks they've been trying to clear, for years.
I get excited about supporting companies to develop their leadership teams, to close the gender pay gap and to make leaps towards gender parity in leadership roles. And, for those companies who are ready for it, I teach teams how to lead from their heart in a head-based world.
I'm on a mission to help women, in particular, become the leaders they were born to be.
📚 I'm the author of eight books. My new book is Ditching Imposter Syndrome (published September 2019) It's available in all good book stores and shows you how to ditch Imposter Syndrome in five simple steps. It already has readers in 22 countries - so if you're struggling with the fear of being 'found out' as not good enough, you are not alone!
I've spent the past nine months leading the landmark 2019 Imposter Syndrome Research Study (also impostor syndrome - it's not a typo!) To find out how Imposter Syndrome might be affecting your business, download the white paper here:
🎤 And you might have seen me around: I have been interviewed by the likes of The Independent, The Daily Telegraph, the BBC World Service and Radio 4, amongst many others. Plus I'm a regular podcast guest across the world. Want to interview me?
I speak regularly at in-house events and conferences. You can find out more about booking me to speak here.
And when it comes to leading training, I've been a certified NLP Trainer since 2003, which means I specialise in how to create training that actually delivers results, at a conscious and subconscious level. My background as a six sigma engineer means I know how to cut out the fluff. You get what works and no time-wasting padding. I love to help people to change their lives in ways that are fast, fun and forever.
My three main areas of expertise are:
