Overcoming Imposter Syndrome

Have you ever felt like a professional fraud? Are you afraid that your colleagues would laugh if they found out how little you actually know?

Do you obsess over mistakes; certain they show the world that you're incompetent? Do you shudder when someone calls you an expert? If so, you have experienced Imposter Syndrome. And you are not alone - research says more than 70 percent of people have felt it at some time. We will explore this phenomenon and discover ways to silence your inner imposter.

Through this workshop, participants will:

  • Diagnose types of Imposter
  • Determine the cause of imposter feelings
  • Develop strategies to stop imposter feelings when they start
