You’re a high-performing leader. It’s time to shed the doubt.

You’ve hit milestone after milestone in your career. You’ve achieved stellar highs. People look to you for direction as a model of success. So where is all this doubt and insecurity about how to lead coming from? And is it even possible to shake these feelings of uncertainty?

In The Surprising Gift of Doubt, sought-after leadership executive coach Marc A. Pitman not only shows you how to conquer your imposter syndrome, but actually harness thse uncomfortable feelings to develop a rare level of leadership mastery. In fact, that inner doubt you’re wrestling with is a signal that you are on the verge of greatness.

Through the same assessments, exercises and self-management tools Pitman uses to help his executive clients achieve their leadership dreams, you’ll learn to:

• Identify your inherent and learned abilities, and apply them most effectively
• Use stories to amplify your natural leadership strengths
• Set career and life goals that fuel your leadership objectives
• Develop a unique style of leading to heighten your performance and the engagement of your team

You will emerge from this leader’s journey of self-discovery more sure-footed, courageous, and self-assured. The challenges of leadership will remain, but you’ll be able to meet them with an unshakeable inner confidence that matches the image others have had of you all along.
