THE CONCEPT  

Do you ever feel like you're going to be 'found out' at work? Of course you do. We all do. In fact, studies show that over 70% of workers feel like that sometimes. This is especially true for employees, managers and leaders in companies that are fast-paced and growing. The downside is that this narrative can seriously harm teamwork, productivity and overall moral. 
 

THE WORKSHOP

In this 60-minute workshop, we'll work together to label the feelings of imposter syndrome and do an exercise that allows for everyone in the room to anonymously share the last time they felt like a fraud at work. This forms a baseline for an open dialogue about this workplace challenge.

By the end of this session, attendees will... 

  • Understand that feelings of imposter syndrome are normal 
  • Practice strategies to identify imposter syndrome 
  • Gain tools to address imposter syndrome at work 
  • Understand how to better support colleagues
