Approximately 70% of people will at some point feel like a fraud, as if they don’t belong and wonder when they will be found out not to be good enough.

This masterclass will explore what the imposter syndrome is (tip: it’s really a phenomenon), why people might experience it, and help you to start to think about yourself and your successes differently – which is the starting point for overcoming the imposter chatter.

  • Discussed what the imposter syndrome is and isn’t.
  • Understand some of the triggers for these feelings.
  • Identify at least three ways to start to combat their own imposter chatter.
  • How to start to support others.
