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

Intended Audience: General 

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 you are?  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.  The vast majority of professionals secretly lack confidence at work and identify with one or more Impostor Syndrome ‘competence types’—and they are hungry for strategies on how to understand and overcome their own limiting beliefs.  Imposter Syndrome holds high performing, intelligent and creative people back from achieving their potential and can wreak havoc on team dynamics.  Those touched by the impostor wand withhold their best ideas, shy away from promotions, delay taking action, burn themselves out and compromise the team.  This workshop provides effective methods to build confidence and manage Impostor Syndrome so together we can overcome roadblocks that prevent us from reaching our goals.

Attendees will leave with:

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

  • The ability to identify various Impostor Syndrome ‘competence types’

  • Strategies to improve their own mindset and behaviors

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

Build Your Personal Board of Directors: How to Advance at Work Through Allies and Advocates

Intended Audience: General 

The relationships you forge along the road to success can have a tremendous impact on your professional growth.  Research shows that men are more likely to build sponsor and mentor relationships to help them navigate tricky political situations at work and position themselves for promotions.  All too often women are told “they should find a mentor or sponsor’ but aren’t sure where to begin or how to do this in an authentic way.  The result is that women are ‘slipping’ on the proverbial “broken rung” and not promoted at the same rate as their male colleagues.

 

This valuable and actionable workshop makes it easy for women to map out a plan of who can help them on their professional journey and how to build those win-win relationships.  Attendees will identify the critical role sponsors, mentors, peer thought partners, allies, and protégées play in supporting their careers.  Participants recognize their personal career growth needs, learn the value that each member of a personal board can provide, and build a network of trusted partners who will share a vested interest in their future.   

Attendees will leave with:

  • An understanding of how a personal Board of Directors can help them meet their career goals

  • A clear view of their top developmental priorities and the ‘gifts they have to give’ to mentor others

  • A roadmap of how to identify each type of board member and the role he/she plays

  • Strategies to help them approach potential advocates and win their support
