How Jenny Willscheid Empowers Female Leaders To Tackle Imposter Syndrome And Create More Career Success

Jenny Willscheid is a certified confidence and mindset coach and founder of justjenny.co coaching, a company dedicated to empowering ambitious women in the corporate world.

Jenny started her own corporate career journey straight after university. She worked in several different countries and cities, leading large teams and regions for a global company, progressing to senior director level. “I always loved my job and found a lot of purpose in my role. I especially enjoyed developing my team”.

After over a decade with her company, Jenny decided to set up her own coaching business. “Coaching, mentoring and people development has always been my passion. I love mindset work and helping people overcome their self- limiting beliefs, set and achieve their goals and really transform their life. It’s a privilege to do the work I love while having a huge positive impact.” 

“I feel so many women are held back in their career due to imposter syndrome. I have seen and experienced it myself, with friends, colleagues, clients. It can really hinder and limit career success and progression.”

According to research 70% of people feel like fakes at some point which is one of the main indicators of imposter syndrome.

It seems high achieving women are more affected by it than men. Even extremely successful women like Lady Gaga or Sheryl Sandberg, COO of Facebook, openly speak about imposter syndrome. 

“From my own experience, I can say that it definitely got worse the higher I got in my career. In the early stages of my career it didn’t really affect me, but the more I progressed, the more I felt like I somehow got there by chance or luck rather than my skills, talent and experience.

It was quite bizarre as despite any evidence to the contrary, I struggled to internalize success and celebrate my accomplishments. I can definitely relate to imposter syndrome, feeling exhausted and burned out.” 

“I’ve seen many women (and also men) struggle with the same, however not many speak about it or even realize that they’re not the only ones. Imposter syndrome can really hinder and limit career success and progression. Unfortunately it often also leads to burn out.

My mission is to empower women to be as successful as they want to be and to create more impact and balance in their career. There need to be more female leaders. I can really relate to my clients and help them overcome these feelings. “

With everything Jenny has learned in the corporate world, her own experiences and her coaching training and qualifications she now works with women in management, leadership and corporate jobs who are ready to level up, master their mindset and overcome self-limiting beliefs.

Using a mix of coaching tools, NLP (Neuro- Linguistic- Programming) and energy techniques, Jenny Willscheid helps female leaders to overcome self doubt and create the successful life and career they deserve. Her coaching not only focuses on subconscious mindset and energy work to create lasting transformation but also balance and self care.

“If your energy is always running on empty and you don’t intervene early on, you will sooner or later feel burned out. A big part of self-love and self-care is to protect your time, your energy and your mental health. Learn to set necessary boundaries and prioritize yourself and your own well-being. It is so important in order to show up as your best self every day but is very easily neglected. Over time it will wear anyone down and the goal is to prevent it”

Besides 1:1 coaching, Jenny also offers group coaching programs and “career clarity days”. Jenny says that especially after/during Covid, a lot of people are re-evaluating their life and career choices and are wondering whether they are in the right job or company. “In career clarity days we focus intensely on the clients values, passions and goals. Many people do not know what their values are or what goals to set for themselves and where to go. It can all be very confusing. Clarity exercises and coaching really help clients get the clarity they need to move forward”.  Jenny is also developing tools and methods to prevent burnout and to create more awareness.
