Self-Doubt And The Imposter Complex With Jen Brown

Jen Brown is a Speaker, Trainer and Coach who is obsessed with self-leadership and self-doubt. She works with high-performance individuals, teams and organisations (like you!) to develop deep-seated confidence in their skills and abilities, allowing people to lead, innovate and challenge the status quo whilst embracing uncertainty, frustrations and setbacks. Drawing on her background as a former Corporate Lawyer and Endurance Sports Coach, Jen asks questions (and lots of them!) to get to the heart of why we sabotage ourselves and how to develop the clarity, focus and strategy needed to lead ourselves to stunning success.

Jen is also the host of Sparta Chicks Radio.

In this episode of The Debra Shepherd Podcast, I’m talking to Jen about self-doubt and the Imposter Complex.
