Imposter Syndrome: Embrace Your Competent, Capable Self

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”
