Weekly Coach Spotlight
I coach organisational leaders at various levels. What surprised me the most is that some leaders at the highest levels still grapple with insecurity, imposter syndrome and self-doubt. Although they portray an image of being in control, the gremlins continue to lurk inside. This impacts upon their self-confidence and other leadership skills. It made me realise that learning about the self is a lifelong process and that we are all simply human, perfectly imperfect.
