- Do people think you are smarter than you really are?
- Do you second-guess your abilities, despite a long history of success and accomplishments?
- Do you hesitate to take on new challenges because they are unfamiliar to you?
If you answered yes to any of those questions, you are in the right place.
Distinguished Toastmaster, Maureen Zappala, is a former NASA engineer, with 13 years of experience conducting jet engine research. Today, she’s an award winning speaker, as well as a mom to two college kids. In fact, she says “Raising kids is harder than jet engine research. WAY HARDER!”
While at NASA, she frequently heard the self-talk say, “You are not as smart as everyone thinks you are! You are a fraud!”
It was “Impostor Syndrome“, the distorted thought pattern that crushed her creativity and squelched her strengths. In this workshop, Maureen will show you how to turn down the volume of that voice so you can have more influence. See you there at 7pm PST tonight.
