Impostor Syndrome Unmasked

Tuesday 8 January 2019

Whether you call it impostor syndrome, feeling fake or just annoying – the chances are that as a human you will have experienced the irrational kind of self-doubt that has you feeling like a fraud despite all the evidence to the contrary!


Whilst the feelings are not confined to women there are parts of our brain wiring and elements of culture that will affect the lived experience of women in business and influence the knock-on effects.


This session was full of insights and tactics – the interactive format encourages sharing. Getting ‘forensic’ with feelings and sharing insights are the core tactics when it comes to managing this joy-leeching feeling.


We all walked away with:

  • an understanding of the core elements of impostor syndrome
  • how these elements will be showing up in you and others
  • the cycle and the triggers of impostor syndrome applied to the business context
  • how you can re-frame and interrupt the thinking
  • a reminder to own your achievements and individuality
  • a general sense of positivity and motivation
