I’m a little over a month in to my new role and feel like I keep choking on external calls I have. Thankfully my manager is on them and can jump in and I’m trying to learn and apply it next time but it’s killing my confidence. I also have this fear that I just don’t have the skills to have these conversations and will get fired. Any tips/thoughts/encouragement?

Research imposter syndrome and how to fight it

It takes time to get up to speed. Don’t discount yourself too early on. The more exposure you have, the quicker you’ll ramp up. Have you tried notating any questions or barriers you face in external conversations? You can use this info and debrief with your manager after each interaction. Also, don’t be afraid to bring this up to your manager in your 1:1s! They may just need to provide a bit more enablement/training so you’re comfortable taking point.
