My opportunity was communicating more effectively in executive level meetings. My Exponential Results coach challenged me to identify the root cause of my issue. Like many leaders, I had attempted to implement improvements and while it worked temporarily, there was no permanent improvement. My coach helped me realize that I needed to change my personal beliefs about myself while implementing physical changes in order for improvements to be sustained for the long-term.
With my coach’s guidance, I realize that I had been struggling with imposter syndrome, feeling like I didn’t deserve my success and position. After this realization, we worked together on a game-plan to update my beliefs and corresponding behavioral patterns to implement practical actions and ultimately, improve my performance in executive level meetings.
Now, I show up confidently and readily speak up and contribute. Additionally, my presentations at these meetings are more succinct and resonate well with audiences. Furthermore, these changes have benefited how I lead my teams and functional areas.
