    Impostor Syndrome

    You aren’t smart enough or good enough. You are a fake and phony and someone is going to uncover the truth at any moment. Do these thoughts sound familiar to you? You are definitely not alone, but it’s time that you stop letting these thoughts sabotage your possibilities in work and your personal life. This feeling of being found out as a fraud is a well-documented phenomenon amongst many high-achieving individuals and it has a name and it’s called Impostor Syndrome and it is a heavy load to bear. Learn how to see it and squash it for good. 

    Note- Please be aware that we follow CDC recommendations and we will ask everyone to wear their masks during the event (vaccinated or not) when not actively eating. We will also limit the guest capacity to 50% and space out our seating properly to maintain social distancing.

    The Everyday Leader: 14 Marine Corps Leadership Traits to Unlock Your Leadership DNA

    Leadership is much broader than a title, level or role. It's about how each and every one of us shows up daily for our family, friends and colleagues. Regardless of where you may be at on your journey, it’s important to have a solid and clear understanding of the many ways to unlock your own leadership style in a meaningful way.

    This session is designed to help create a cohesive picture of who you are as a leader, both at work and in your personal lives. During this interactive discussion, Hema and Michael will provide insight into the 14 Marine Corps Leadership Traits and how they apply to each one of us. They will provide actionable insight on how to create a leadership statement specific to you and tips on how to apply your own leadership style into everyday life.

    Attendees will walk away with:

    -A better understanding of how to show up as a leader in every interaction.

    -Insight into the 14 Marine Corps Leadership Traits and how they can be applied to business.

    -A personalized, thoughtful, and meaningful leadership statement. 

    -Actionable tips on how to put the leadership traits into practice daily.

    Michael and Hema will also be giving away a few copies of their new book, The Everyday Leader.

    Guest Speakers:

    Hema Crockett is a former HR executive turned entrepreneur. She is the co-founder of Gig Talent, a modern talent collective connecting fully vetted high-caliber HR consultants and leadership coaches with forward-thinking organizations who want the best talent the gig economy has to offer. Michael Crockett spent nearly 23 years in the United States Marine Corps. Upon retiring, he led operations for a San Diego defense contractor before joining Gig Talent to head up leadership development and operations. Together, Hema and Michael have woven their business and military leadership experiences to bring them to life in The Everyday Leader: 14 Marine Corps Leadership Traits to Unlock Your Leadership DNA.
