Evict the Impostor: How to Overcome Imposter Syndrome and Improve Confidence

Intended Audience: General audience

Have you ever thought of yourself as a fraud or a fake, waiting for others to ‘find out’ that you aren’t really as smart or talented as everyone thinks?  If you haven’t personally felt this way, your team members probably have.  Impostor Syndrome affects the majority of women at work, but men also struggle with it too.  In a 2018 study, two-thirds of women suffered from feelings of Impostor Syndrome (along with almost half of men surveyed).  It can hold you back from achieving your potential and wreak havoc on your team dynamic and business.  A lack of confidence and self-worth is a major barrier to professional growth. Those touched by the impostor wand shy away from promotions, delay taking action, burn themselves out and compromise the team.  This keynote provides effective methods to build confidence and manage Impostor Syndrome to help you overcome roadblocks that prevent you from reaching your goals.

Attendees will leave with:

  • An understanding of how pervasive Impostor Syndrome is and why it matters

  • The ability to identify the five Impostor Syndrome types 

  • Strategies to improve their own mindset and behaviors

  • Methods for managing team members who suffer from low self-confidence or Impostor Syndrome
