- 1 day Instructor-led workshop
If you are experiencing feelings of inadequacy and self-doubt, you’ll be surprised that Imposter Syndrome is typically associated with high achievers. Some 70% of people experience this at some time in their lives. As we become more specialised in a particular subject, we become more aware we become of the gaps in our knowledge which can bring on feelings of being “not quite good enough.”.
The course examines the Imposter Syndrome, where it stems from and offers tips and techniques and strategies to overcome it. Through these you will be able to confirm and acknowledge your capabilities.
Who is this course for?
Anyone who feels like they are a fraud and does not believe in their own achievements, or who criticises his/her rights to manifesting good things for themselves and others. It will also help managers who are dealing with this syndrome in any of their staff.
This course is designed to explore the Imposter Syndrome, to recognise its presentations and debilitations for the psyche and in day to day life and offers thinking techniques for you to handle it constructively.
