Workshop

How can it be that so many clever, competent and capable people can feel they are one step away from being exposed as a complete fraud? It’s called impostor syndrome, and it’s a lot more common than we think. Impostor feelings can develop over time, affecting what you do and how you think about yourself.


The workshop will explain in detail why high performing people often doubt their abilities and find it hard to enjoy their successes. It will also show the links to perfectionism and strategies such as procrastination, avoidance and over-commitment.


Explore how we get ourselves into this mindset

- Understand the impostor cycle

- Straighten out your thinking.

- Be brave and take action


Discover and acknowledge the everyday symptoms

- Separating feelings from facts

- Identifying self-sabotage

- Overcome feelings of insecurity


Understand your communication style

- Evaluate yourself and your communication style

- Embrace and develop your strengths

- Understand the behaviours of others


Walk away with tools to create a positive mindset

- Analyse your strengths and weaknesses

- Develop imposter busting strategies

- Build confidence to help others
