About this Event

We’re sorry, we’ve made a mistake…

… you’re not the right person for the job. If you regularly imagine someone tapping you on the shoulder and telling you this, then you may well be experiencing the Impostor Phenomenon (IP).

Individuals at all levels of organisations experience the IP and one of the most helpful things for us to understand is that it is definitely ‘a thing’. Identifying it and bringing it out in the open, often through coaching, enables us to do something about it. The Impostor Phenomenon doesn’t just affect women. There are, however, a number of reasons why it tends to be more prevalent in women.

So, how can you recognise the IP and its impact on your work and career? And what can you do about it?

In this session, you will

  • Gain insight into the possible causes of the IP
  • Learn how to spot symptoms of the IP
  • Experiment with some techniques to address specific symptoms of the IP/li>
  • Take away your own action plan for getting control of the IP and other habits that may be holding you back
