Partner Power Hour with Micha Goebig: Overcoming Impostor Syndrome
October 26 @ 12:15 pm - 1:00 pmFree
Have you ever felt like you’re only winging it and that it is only a matter of time until people find out that you are not as competent as they may think? Are you sometimes convinced that your successes are just down to blind luck or being in the right place at the right time? If so, you may be struggling with impostor syndrome. Many of us do, also—and especially—people who are hard-working, well educated, and successful.
The good news is that, with some guidance and practice, we can change our thoughts and learn to take a more realistic—and more positive—view on our lives, careers, and accomplishments.
In this workshop, we will talk about what the impostor syndrome is, the different ways in which it manifests in people’s lives, and what we can do to overcome it. You will leave with an actionable list of strategies and tools that can help you make positive changes and strengthen your confidence and courage.
This workshop is for everybody who …
… is ready to take an important step toward overcoming self-doubt, negative self-talk, or a feeling of inadequacy.
… wants to feel more comfortable in their professional environment and their role.
… feels they need some positive motivation to seek out and explore new opportunities.
