How you feel about yourself plays as much a role in your success as any skill or experience.
One of my client--whom I'll call Sue--came to me recently to rehearse for an upcoming interview at a local Portland company.
"It's really scary this time," she said.
"Why?" I asked.
"I have to face a committee, four people, all men. I'm not sure I'm up for it."
I thought for a moment, then asked, "What exactly are you feeling about it, right now, in this moment?"
"I know I will be intimidated. Not because I don't have the skills or experience, just that I've always felt a bit inferior to executives, especially male ones."
