“Am I just a fraud who is pretending that I know what I’m doing?”
“Is everything I’ve accomplished just an outcome of pure luck?”
If you’re a woman in the workplace, chances are that you’ve caught yourself asking questions like these before. Research has found that a majority of highly accomplished women in the workplace experience feelings of inadequacy and self-doubt which can lead them to question their own achievements - a phenomenon commonly known as “imposter syndrome.”
The outcome? Many women suffer in silence and worse, pass up or miss out on career-changing opportunities.
In honor of Women’s History Month, Executive Coach and Hone Facilitator Ianna Raim will lead a session on how to manage your imposter syndrome and embrace your successes and accomplishments.
You’ll leave with a greater understanding of:
Why you feel like an imposter at work and what fears might be driving your behavior
How to shift your focus from shortcomings and failures to accomplishments and opportunities
How to use self-compassion and other tools to tame the imposter experience
