Imposter Syndrome Essentials
Do you feel as good as they think you are?
This secret fear that we’re not really good enough is surprisingly widespread. Some will say they feel like an imposter, others that they feel a fraud or not quite good enough.
In the face of tangible evidence of their success, many women, some men, people who are genuine high-achievers, are often wracked by self doubt and the fear of being found out.
We begin with Imposter Syndrome Essentials
During the workshop “Imposters” explored:
- What Imposter Syndrome is…
- Who is likely to experience Imposter feelings and why
- Unconscious bias in the workplace
- How to deal with Imposter feelings
You might recognise Imposter Syndrome feelings or simply admit there are times when you just don’t feel good enough.
The resources on this page complement the content delivered during the Zoom workshop.
Outsmart your Imposter!
When you realise:
- you don’t put yourself forward because you fear you’ll fail
- you don’t contribute in meetings because you don’t want to look a fool
- you’ve done pretty well so far but feel you’ve been really lucky
- other people doing similar jobs seem to be more “grown up” than you feel…
If not addressed Imposter Syndrome feelings can cause individuals to experience significant stress, anxiety and fear. It can drive them to burnout or inhibit them from achieving their full potential, prevent them from making valuable contributions to projects or meetings and deprive an organisation from seeing the very best that their staff can give.
Thank you for watching. I do hope you found the content helpful.
