Session 2 | Overcome Imposter Syndrome: Own It & Move Forward
Do you chalk up your success to ‘luck’? Do you walk into a room and feel like the least qualified person in there? We often assume that people who appear to “have it together,” or who have achieved a certain level of success always feel like they deserve it. Yet, women business leaders at every level, academics and even celebrities on the world stage have all said they’ve felt like a “fraud.”
You don’t have to let imposter syndrome prevent you from exploring new opportunities and from taking credit for your own success!
In this powerful session you’ll have the opportunity to share ideas with peers and listen to women entrepreneurs discussing their real-life experiences. You will begin to examine imposter syndrome in a safe and supportive space. Whether you’ve experienced imposter feelings yourself or are simply curious about the topic, this session will ensure that you keep moving forward with confidence.
By the end of this session, you will be able to:
- Identify risk factors, causes, predictors and negative outcomes of imposter syndrome.
- Outline three strategies for minimizing the feelings that can cause imposter syndrome.
- Work the steps to minimize feelings of being an imposter.
