Do you hesitate to speak up because you worry that you’ll sound foolish? 
Do you question whether you have what it takes to successfully perform your role? 
Do you worry that the people around you are so much better qualified than you are?
If so, you likely struggle with impostor syndrome, a term for the feelings of self-doubt and inadequacy many professionals face, particularly as we advance our careers. Although approximately 70% of the population will experience impostor syndrome at some point in their lives, most who struggle with this issue do so in silence, depriving them of the resources and support needed to effectively manage it. In this deep-dive workshop, you will:
  • Understand the effects of impostor syndrome on individuals, teams, and organizations
  • Examine common triggers of impostor syndrome, including why you're more likely to experience impostor syndrome in certain fields and industries 
  • Learn actionable strategies to build your confidence and manage self-doubt so that you can effectively achieve your professional goals.
