Pushing Your Envelope:How Technical Experts and Leaders Defeat Impostor Syndrome and Live with Bold Confidence

Maureen Zappala,

Keynote Speaker, Author, Presentation Skills Coach,

Founder, High Altitude Strategies,

2017-18 President, National Speakers Association, Ohio Chapter

Podcast host of “No Doubt Allowed”


You’re a smart, skilled successful engineer. Everyone thinks you’re amazing.


Except you. You harbor secret self-doubt that whispers “I’m not as smart as they think I am. I feel like a fraud.” It’s Impostor Syndrome.


It brings feelings of anxiety, overwhelm and isolation, along with feeling unqualified for the job. In fact, Impostor Syndrome is the single biggest factor that keeps many engineers from advancing professionally and truly enjoying their careers.


You’re not alone. It’s estimated that 70% of people suffer from this. But there’s a way out. You can be released from this experience so you can quiet that impostor voice. By changing your thinking with the 5 strategies of “Fraud-Free Framework” you can begin to enjoy your success, be proud of your abilities, and confidently face new opportunities without fear of being unmasked as a fake. You’ll experience a new freedom, new creativity and a new level of influence.


This is not woo-woo feel-good content. It’s strategic, backed by science, and remarkably effective. When you change your thoughts, you change your behavior, and you change your outcome. You’ll feel great about being great!
