Imposter Syndrome - How to Handle It

I’m not sure I can do this - have I taken on too much? Sound familiar? Learn how to overcome “impostor syndrome” and navigate those nagging feelings of fear and self-doubt to achieve your full potential.

Description

In this session we’ll look at what imposter syndrome is and why it affects so many people, as we come to understand the impacts of fear of failure, perfectionism and our people-pleasing tendencies. We’ll dive deeply into the subject and work on practical tips to help build self-efficacy, resilience and develop strategies to deal with those feelings of fear and inadequacy that you can take away and apply to your life.

By the end of the session, you’ll be able to:
• Define imposter syndrome
• Implement strategies to build self-efficacy and navigate feelings of inadequacy
• Examine what’s holding you back and implement practices to stop these habits from becoming your undoing
• Recognise the brain’s negativity bias and discover how to rewire neural pathways
• Build resilience and see why it helps with the syndrome
