About the Workshop

You’re smart, accomplished, and have a pretty impressive resume. Yet some days you still feel like you’re “faking it.” While these feelings are common and very normal, they can sabotage your confidence and impede your productivity.

As a result of this workshop, participants will be able to:

  • Understand the experience of Impostor Syndrome
  • Recognize the sources/causes of Impostor feelings
  • Develop strategies to successfully work through thoughts of self-doubt
