Challenging Impostor Syndrome

For women and people from underrepresented groups, Impostor Syndrome really is a ‘thing’. They are aware of a creeping self-doubt which challenges their right to the positions and roles that they find themselves in. Often this phenomenon will prevent them from comfortably aspiring to, and achieving, more senior or more challenging roles. It can certainly limit personal achievements by limiting what individuals believe they deserve or are capable of.

This workshop looks at the societal precursors and building blocks to impostor syndrome. When we have picked it apart, we then share stories and tools for confidence building and break down some of the mythology about impostor syndrome being totally the fault of the holder. Delegates will be equipped with a toolset to help them recognise when their personal confidence is being erroded.
