How to overcome your imposter syndrome

  • Webinar

This webinar is part of IPSE’s New Year, New Knowledge webinar series. Other webinars include: Self Assessment tax return: All you need to know, Building brand me, IR35: How to prepare of the April 2021 changes and The blueprint to winning more work, more often as better rates.

The imposter syndrome describes a condition where we feel that we don’t deserve the position or responsibility that we have. We find it difficult to take pride in our achievements and have the feeling that we are a ‘fraud’.

It is staggering how many people suffer from the imposter syndrome. Did you know that Meryl Streep, Albert Einstein and Maya Angelou all suffered from this condition? It can have a negative effect on your work and the way that you view yourself in the workplace. It can certainly stop talented people from progressing at work and getting the roles that they are capable of.

People who suffer with Imposter Syndrome may often also suffer from some perfectionism and a fear of failure, but they often forget to think about all the things that they do achieve and all the skills and qualities that they do have.

This webinar will cover:

  • What is the imposter syndrome & how does it affect us?
  • Is the imposter syndrome affecting your work and the success of your business?
  • The best ways to tackle the imposter syndrome
  • Reminding yourself about your skillset
  • How to get support on the journey

The webinar is interactive, even though it’s online. There will be plenty of time for questions and you can even submit your question in advance to [email protected] with the subject ‘Questions for the imposter syndrome webinar’.
