At this month's London Tech Ladies, we're joined by Peter Soer who will be telling us more about impostor syndrome, how to recognise if you have it and how you can overcome it. Don't miss this event!
Work harder than the rest to be sure things will go well, including over-preparing for meetings
Expect every aspect of your work to be exemplary
Hold back your talent and opinions
Procrastinate, such that work is last minute or not finished
If you recognise one of these, you might be experiencing Impostor feelings.
Leaders experience fear of being found out in a variety of situations, for example
Women in senior leadership roles, often in male majority environments
Taking on stretching roles in accelerated leadership paths
Times of transition – new role, project, team, place to live, career change
In these types of situation, feelings of impostor syndrome can break through, affect our ability to succeed and enjoy the very success we crave! These moments are important to the individual and to the organisation giving the opportunity.
In this interactive session, you will explore:
What is Impostor Syndrome, and why it happens
How the behaviours ‘reward’ and limit us
Practical steps you can take to beat the feelings, increase your confidence, and so enjoy and increase your success
Note - LondonTechLadies events are open to anyone - men & women from any industry or background are welcome.
