Tackling Imposter Syndrome

Masterclass date: Thursday 1st February 2024

It’s likely that most high-achieving leaders have experienced imposter syndrome at one time or another. The feeling of inadequacy is experienced by most people, from university students to famous artists and CEOs of global corporations.

Research tells us it is especially common in high-achieving women. It shows up as feelings of being out of depth, not being skilled enough, experienced enough or equal enough to others.

Unfortunately, Imposter syndrome can constrain the potential to progress by preventing people from pursuing new opportunities for growth at work, in relationships, or in communities. This is bad news for leaders, businesses and the people themselves.

In this 2.5 hour informative and interactive session Danielle reveals that there more to the phenomenon than we think and what leaders and individuals can do to tackle it.

We will cover:

Why societal structures have provided fertile ground for perfectionism and Imposter Syndrome
How to understand where you sit on the Self Doubt to Imposter Syndrome spectrum
The first key step to tackling it
One important tool you can implement straight away
What you can do to support others to navigate through so they can grow and thrive

You will receive practical takeaways – ideas strategies and tools – you can use immediately, day to day, to support and empower yourself and support and connect with the experiences of other professionals in the WiBF community.

Date: Thursday 1st February 2024
Time: 9:00am to 11:30am AEDT
Location: Zoom Meeting

Prepare to do some reflecting and some planning because this session will have an activity or two to help you take some important steps to help you to identify what’s wrong, focus on what’s strong and use it for what’s next.
