“I’m not as smart as everyone thinks I am.”

Have you ever said this to yourself? Maybe, despite a long list of accomplishments and accolades, you still struggle with feeling like you don’t measure up.
You feel like a fake, and you fear being discovered.
You suffer from “The Impostor Syndrome”. It’s a cognitive distortion where your confidence does not match your competence.

Maureen Zappala has been there and can show you the way back to confidence.

Check out a recent interview by Microsoft at the CodeMash 2016 conference:

As a female motivational speaker, Maureen challenges audiences to shift their thinking to align their confidence to their competence. Imagine being free from the pressure to perform, or to over-prepare. Imagine being released from the fear of failure (or the fear of success!) Imagine being more confident in your skills so you can contribute more of your greatness to your organization.

Imagine a level of personal growth you never thought possible.

A former NASA aeronautics propulsion engineer, Maureen spent almost 14 years at the NASA Lewis (now NASA Glenn) Research Center outside Cleveland Ohio. If anyone has ever said to you “What are you, a rocket scientist?” Maureen can honestly say “Why yes, I am.” However, while at NASA, despite being the first female and youngest facility manager of the Propulsion Systems Laboratory, she was plagued with the inner voice of condemnation that whispered “I’m not as smart as they think I am.” Now, as a motivational speaker, she inspires and entertains audiences, while leading them to greater personal growth. Let Maureen help you and your organization today.
