“No one is going to pay me to be their coach.”
“I’ve spent countless hours in coach training, but I don’t feel ready.”
“A client can say that I was helpful, but I only focus on the moments where I struggled.”
“I’ve had several discovery calls, but no one has signed up. I need to do something else.”
Does this sound like you? I’ve heard many coaches express doubts about their ability to coach well. Ironically, five years earlier, I attended a web design workshop on imposter syndrome for web designers and was already well aware of the telltale signs. Unfortunately, it seems that imposter syndrome can plague anyone stepping into a new career but especially those who are already prone to perfectionism and not feeling “enough”.
