1. Written/ audio/ video information


There are so many written sources of information about career confidence/ Imposter Syndrome coaching, from printed books to ebooks to academic articles to blogs on fora such as Medium, to my own blogs (see here).


When you add in podcasts, Clubhouse chats, Facebook groups, and YouTube videos, there is a plethora of free or very low cost material out there.

Some of these will be lengthy, some shorter; some might include exercises or worksheets for you to do.

Pros:

  • Easy to dip into

  • A good way to discover different schools of thought/ approaches

  • Low commitment

  • Can easily fit into work/ life

  • Low cost.


Cons:

  • Not personalised at all, so lower chance of transformation

  • No accountability, so lower chance of implementation

  • No group support.


Cost:


Very low cost, from free to c £15.


2. Online training course


Online training can range from a series of short videos, to a longer course with videos and worksheets supported by eg a Facebook group.


You might get access to all the videos at the same time; or they might be drip-fed over a period of time.


Pros:

  • More in-depth and focussed than the above

  • Usually have more concrete exercises/ actions for you to take

  • The possibility of some personalised feedback via a group communication (eg a Facebook group)

  • Usually short chunks of learning you can fit into your life easily

  • Fairly low cost.


Cons:

  • Still a one-size fits all approach

  • Very little opportunity for personalised coaching

  • Usually no accountability.


Cost:

Can be fairly low cost: can range (depending on expert) from c£27 to c£497+.




3. Group coaching

Group coaching is different to an online course in that the key delivery mechanism of the coaching will be live, rather than through recorded videos.


It will usually be scheduled for a particular frequency (so weekly/ fortnightly/ monthly calls, for 3 months/ 6 months/ 1 year).


Some forms of group coaching are also combined with online materials.


They may include short periods of time focussed specifically on you (such as the “hot seat” format in a Mastermind, where each member gets a short period of time just on them each week/ fortnight/ month).


Pros:

  • You do get live interaction with the expert

  • Some (limited) personalisation

  • Accountability from the coach

  • You are more likely to be committed to do it if you are scheduled to turn up at specific times

  • Group support and bonding with your peers
