Do You Struggle With Mental Performance Hurdles?

Mental Performance blocks like Imposter syndrome (“Imposterism”) or “The YIPS” impact many of us day-in-day-out.

If you’re here, you might be someone that is feeling…

  • Overwhelmed and/or burnt-out
  • Like a self-appointed perfectionist (naturally your toughest critic).
  • Unfulfilled – despite your many successes and blessings
  • A lack of gratitude (you can’t stop comparing yourself to others OR who you’d thought you’d be by now).
  • Uncertain of who you are – your values, strengths, goals and desires in life
  • That your contributions mean little to nothing (maybe temporary highs from external validation but it is fleeting).
  • A lack of excitement toward your goals and future self
  • Anxious that you don’t deserve to be where you are (despite evidence that technically proves you wrong).
  • Closed-off to new opportunities – lacking belief in self, “playing it safe” rather than pushing your comfort zone.

You know there has to be more to life than crippling self-doubt and constant fear of the future. You can envision your ideal life for yourself and your loved ones. But no matter how hard you try – you can’t seem to get there. 

You, or members of your team, might be experiencing these imposter symptoms daily. 

Whatever contributes to the feeling that you’re: undeserving – not good enough – masquerading in a role that isn’t truly you…

I can help you identify what’s holding you back.

What do I know about mental performance hurdles?

With more than 25 years of experience leading teams and cultivating positive workplace cultures in the non-profit arena, I decided to turn my attention to working with leaders, teams, and athletes to find tailored solutions for elevating their leadership and culture: harnessing mental performance hurdles, enhancing psychological wellbeing, and optimizing individual and organizational performance.

I do this because I myself, and so many that I have supervised and lead, have struggle through mental performance hurdles (namely Imposterism). Because of my work with a coach, experiencing how it improved my personal and professionals life, I wanted to give back to leaders across different arenas that struggle with the same issues – both for themselves and for the talent they lead in their organizations.

Hi, I’m Mike. I am an executive coach and workplace culture consultant harnessing mental performance hurdles like imposter syndrome.

I have – and still do – struggle with it. 

But, I have learned how to harness the impact on: my relationships, my business, my personal goals, my self-efficacy and confidence, and my sense of self.

Coaching helped me break free of the limiting beliefs and fears that were holding me back from true fulfillment and growth. 

Now I want to help you do the same. 

Are you struggling to find balance between your professional and personal life?

We Are What We Do Repeatedly!

Without further ado, here’s the exact blueprint I use for success…


That’s not how I work.

A great coach should:

  • Help you gain clarity about yourself, especially your needs, desires, and limiting beliefs. 
  • Empower you to take action once you know where you want to go. 
  • Work with you to determine which tools and strategies you should implement based on your unique personality, lifestyle, and goals.
  • Lay the mental groundwork for you to learn “how” to hold yourself accountable both during our time working together AND afterward so you can build upon the progress we make together.

With all that said, let’s dive a bit deeper into my process for both individuals and organizations.

Are you experiencing performance plateaus in your current role?

Success Looks Different To Everyone.

The goalpost is constantly moving when you’re a driven high achiever. 

It’s essential to remain open and be understanding with yourself throughout your journey.

Success from our time together might look like:

  • Feeling like you have balance in all areas of your life – reflecting your values, strengths, goals
  • Accomplishing the goals you had set before seeking out coaching
  • Gaining the ability to continually practice introspection and mindset shifts that helps you realize your true goals
  • NOT feeling “alone on an island” – instead understood and supported by your team and peers
  • Self-confidence to make better decisions that might not be what you want in the immediate future but will serve your long-term growth
  • Identifying and removing your limiting beliefs AND the self-sabotaging thoughts and behaviors that prevent you from being in alignment with your true self

Sound intriguing…like I am hitting upon some thoughts and feelings that are fairly consistent in your head?

Do you need support in setting and achieving your goals?

No One Will Hype You Up or Tear You Down As Much As Yourself!

You might think combatting mental performance blocks, like imposter syndrome, is easy or obvious. 

Well…it is, and it isn’t.

First, using the word “combat” sounds like a hand-to-hand battle where someone wins and someone loses. This is not the case. Mental performance hurdles are constant and sometime pervasive throughout our lives. This is a war of attrition – meaning that winning looks like developing the mindset and mental fitness tools to “harness” the negative impact of imposterism when it creeps up.

It is like how we can exercise, eat relatively well, reduce stress, etc. to mitigate the effects of a seasonal cold. Colds will always impact our health BUT how well we prepare in advance helps determine how we ward-off the barrage of virus bombarding our immune system.

This is where coaching comes in. And like all relationships, it takes two to make a thing go right. (it even takes two to make it outta sight).

Here’s the Truth: YOU have the potential to become unstoppable. The first step is coming to coaching with an open mind and the drive to grow. 

You might think you’re lost or not good enough or that others have what you don’t.

But what about…

The people that look up to you AND how far you’ve already come?

Your boss and teammates who express their appreciation for your contributions? The courses and certifications already under your belt? (remember, you were hired for a reason and NOT just because you’re the last warm body in the room…trust that those who hired and work with you – know what they are doing!)

You’ve convince yourself these things don’t matter – but they do. 

If you’re constantly comparing yourself to others or the vision you have for yourself – let’s put a stop to that. 

Signing up for coaching is you saying that you are ready to show your mental performance blocks (i.e., imposterism, the YIPS, etc.) that It’s time to make room for your new guests – growth and fulfillment.

Myth vs. Truth

Myth: Imposter syndrome is an excuse for not improving yourself.

Truth: Imposter syndrome affects people of all ages, genders, ethnicities, and backgrounds. 

Even the most driven people struggle with imposter syndrome because of how intensely they care about their own success and contributions. Fun Fact: imposterism strikes those who are high achievers, driven, risk-takers.

Myth: The most successful people in the world never struggle with imposter syndrome.

Truth: Everyone struggles with self-doubt and feels imposter syndrome from time to time. 

The most successful individuals feel it, BUT they’ve learned how to manage it. 

They’ve figured out which voice to listen to and when so they can still move forward and succeed.

You can too.

Myth: Imposter syndrome can’t manifest in ways that affect your success. 

Truth: It’s common for individuals who experience frequent imposter syndrome to:

  • Hold themselves back from attempting tasks or applying for positions they imagine as beyond their skill level or knowledge.
  • Engage in self-sabotaging behaviors if they’re convinced they don’t deserve success. 
  • Go with the flow, even if they feel their voice isn’t heard, or their values represented. They don’t believe they deserve a say. 

Imposter syndrome is an inevitable part of your drive and ambition. But just because it’s inevitable doesn’t mean it has to stop you in your tracks. 

It can be a parasite, or you can turn it into a weapon of mass success. You get to choose.
