Break Free From Imposter Syndrome: Embrace Your Competent, Capable Self

Event Description

Why do so many individuals fear being exposed as a fraud?  Why the self-doubt and self-devaluation?  In this seminar, you will learn:


·        What neuroscience and psychology tell us about the prevalence of “imposter syndrome” and why is it more prevalent in high achievers.

·        The costs of imposter syndrome on individuals and organizations.

·        The relationship between competence and confidence and why are both needed to achieve full potential.

·        Practical strategies can organizations implement and individuals use to break out of “imposter syndrome.”
