Success: what lies behind the mask?

An exploration of the imposter syndrome and the impact of remote working


Do you experience a nagging doubt that you could be ‘found out’ or perhaps you put your success down to luck or timing?

Have you ever noticed a need to be perfect and avoid making mistakes because they ‘prove’ you are not up to the job?

Would you like to feel more confident, and put yourself forward for new projects, opportunities or even promotion?


Many people have a voice inside that says they could do so much more, at work, in their community or at home.  The internal chatter is sometimes accompanied by a lack of confidence which can prevent you reaching your potential.

Success also comes with its own trials.  Many high achievers have an internal voice asking: “did they really mean to promote me?”, “am I really good enough?”, “what if they find me out?”… and it can be really stressful!  This could be “imposter” chatter, and the irony is that the real frauds don’t tend to experience these thoughts at all.

This online event will give you with the opportunities to discuss your experiences with your colleagues and also provide you with some key tips on how to spot the imposter chatter and overcome it, in yourselves and support others.



Call or email Kate to discuss this for your team or organisation.
