Imposter Syndrome – Friend & Foe?
Organised by PrimeTime Business and Professional Women’s Association
May 9th Thursday
Have you ever thought: ”What gives me the right to be here in this role?” or “I just got lucky this time”?
If so, you may have been experiencing Imposter Syndrome – the feeling you get when you think you are an ‘imposter’ in your role, or other life and work situations.
Impostor syndrome refers to an internal experience of believing that you are not as competent as others perceive you to be. While this definition is usually narrowly applied to intelligence and achievement, it has links to perfectionism and the social context.
If this sounds familiar, you are not alone. Imposter Syndrome is common and yet it can be debilitating. It leads to a loss of confidence and this can lead to us being less impactful at work. However, it could also be a sign of growth and an opportunity to learn and change.
In this session Jean Balfour will provide practical tools that would help participants to:
- Understand the psychological aspects of imposter syndrome and self-confidence
- See confidence as an area they can invest in, develop and improve
- Know how to challenge their own negativity and learn from challenges
- Develop and maintain healthy self-confidence
