Episode #81: Imposter Series Part 4 – James Bond Your Name

This week on the podcast: James Bond your name!

I want to introduce you to a powerful tool for creating instant courage, building lasting confidence and showcasing your value – to yourself and to others. It’s free, it belongs to you and you can take it with you everywhere: it’s your name.

But it’s not enough to just have a name. It’s vitally important that you know how to use it.

In this episode you’ll discover that your name is the first part of your five part Imposter SpeechTM – the powerful identity statement I introduced you to in episode 80 and which I created to help you solve your Imposter Syndrome. Although the true power of your name can only be unleashed when you have been through each step of the Imposter SpeechTM process, there’s still so much you can gain by thinking about how you say and communicate it, what it means to you and the difference it can make when you decide to James Bond your name.

Testimonials

Caroline, I can’t thank you enough for the help you gave me while starting to think of family planning. Your level-headed approach to some of the things I was panicking about has put everything into perspective. Not to mention that talking through and planning how to run my company single-handedly with a child was invaluable. I really appreciate having the after-session documents to work through in my own time and have been referring to them frequently. I cannot recommend a Babyproof Your Life session highly enough when starting to think about children – everyone should do this! Many thanks again.

When I came into the office the following Monday, I could see the effect that you’d had. People were visibly changed as a result of your talk.

Oli Holmes, Accenture

I wanted to let you know that I have been promoted to counsel. Thanks very much to your coaching I have managed to get through one of the most challenging years of my career and managed to achieve what I had hoped to! I might not have made it were it not for your advice and guidance.

Client C, Solicitor

I am more than happy to share wonderful feedback about you. Working with you has been life changing and continues to inspire me and help me grow.

Caroline did a fantastic job as the guest speaker at our latest Women with Ambition networking event: 'How to ensure kids don’t derail your career'. Caroline’s talk was engaging and insightful and feedback from our clients that attended was overwhelmingly positive. All of the delegates mentioned they had gained some sound advice from Caroline’s presentation, regardless of whether they were thinking about having children, were already parents or were managing individuals with family commitments. Caroline has been a pleasure to work with and I look forward to continuing to develop our working relationship in the future. I would highly recommend working with her.

Caroline came to speak to our Balance Employee Network about “How to babyproof your career so you can balance your life”. I really enjoyed preparing this event together. Caroline took great care in understanding the needs of the audience to make her message even more powerful. The whole process from preparing the event invitation to getting feedback was very professional with a wonderful personal touch.
