Reviews

"Relying on insightful prose, moving case studies, and thoughtful exercises, Drs. Lisa and Richard Orbé-Austin have crafted an invaluable guide for anyone seeking a rich, fulfilling career. With kind-heartedness and care, they expertly highlight the pitfalls of work culture we need to be mindful of as we move toward the greatness we all deserve. A must-read." --Clarence A. Haynes " author of The Legacy of Jim Crow, co-author of Nubia: The Awakening"

In Your Unstoppable Greatness, Lisa and Richard Orbe-Austin brilliantly use their clinical insights as licensed psychologists, combined with years of working with companies, associations, and universities, to provide an accessible book aimed at helping individuals combat their impostor feelings to reach their highest potential. Grounded in sound psychological principles and insights (e.g., the impact of family codependency dynamics, the importance of self-care) and using the 3 A's model (agency, assessment, and actualization), the book provides an easy-to-follow, step-by-step guide for achieving one's dreams by learning how to identify systems, organizations and toxic work environments that serve to reinforce feelings of impostorism. The case studies and the exercises in the book are among the most helpful that I've encountered. Perhaps the best compliment I can give is that I found the exercises to be personally and professionally beneficial! I wish this book had been available during my previous talks because I would have recommended it as a must-have resource. Suffice it to say that I will now be strongly recommending this book to anyone struggling to overcome their impostor feelings! --Kevin Cokley, Ph.D. University Diversity and Social Transformation Professor, University of Michigan, and Editor of Making Black Lives Matter: Confronting Anti-Black Racism

Your Unstoppable Greatness is the "Green Book" to master the career journey challenges of these times. Imposter syndrome is our modern-day endemic that in the words of James Baldwin impacts those of us who are systematically, "marginalized." This is the book you carry with you throughout your career. YUG is the guide and ride full of sharp wit, heartfelt wisdom, real-world exercises and innovative strategies that "honors your greatness and dreams." I will be purchasing copies for my loved ones. Buckle up! --Allen McFarlane, Assistant Vice President for Outreach & Engagement, NYU

Applause for Drs. Lisa and Richard Orbe-Austin's latest work, Your Unstoppable Greatness: Break Free from Imposter Syndrome, Cultivate Your Agency, and Achieve Your Ultimate Career Goals! The volume is a very readable treasure trove of wisdom which guides the reader in applying psychological truth - taken from the authors' professional practice and expertise - to address stumbling blocks to career success. Unlike many volumes which do not offer the "how to" in achieving the reader's goals, Your Unstoppable Greatness acts as both commentary and a workbook that uses practical techniques and tools - case studies, reflection exercises, and a wide range of helpful tips and key takeaways - to assist the reader in understanding Imposter Syndrome's impact and the workplace dynamics that trigger it. Your Unstoppable Greatness is the right resource at the right time (now!) when so many are searching for the keys to personal and professional satisfaction. It will help you to recognize and address the beliefs and behaviors that may be blocking the success that you desire and deserve - add it to your library today! --Dr. Corlisse Thomas, Senior Vice Chancellor at Rutgers University

With Your Unstoppable Greatness, Lisa and Richard Orbe Austin have created an essential toolkit to help confront and ultimately, overcome imposter syndrome. They draw from data, research and their own experience coaching clients to help readers identify toxic cultures, understand how patterns in their own interpersonal relationships play out at work, and address those patterns so they can strengthen their relationships with their colleagues and with themselves.--Jessi Hempel, Host of Hello Monday "LinkedIn"
