A game of 'status' - understanding our percieved 'worth'

I once participated in an intriguing exercise centered around social status. 

The exercise highlights the influence that our perceived status has on our interactions and behavior.

Now that I'm aware of the energies at play within social situations, I can apply the exercise for shedding light on how imposter syndrome can impact on our self-perception.

In this episode I'll explain what the exercise is, and how you can apply it to your future networking events and meetings to understand how others percieve you.

Overcoming fear and embracing personal growth

It's my goal of this episode that I'll be offering powerful insights on combatting imposter syndrome and helping you with embracing personal growth.

We'll be emphasizing the importance of self-acceptance, finding a trusted partner, and developing a step-by-step action plan.

By redirecting our focus from comparison to relating and understanding others, we can free ourselves from the limitations of Imposter Syndrome and unlock our true potential.
