Have you ever wonder if you’ll be ‘found out’? Have you just been ‘lucky’ to get to where you are today? Then you are like most people – you have experienced ‘the imposter syndrome’. This one day programme is for those who sometimes feel like imposters, or who might want to help others who feel the same. We will look at the nature of the imposter syndrome and, to discover ways of overcoming the feeling, we will explore the psychology and neuroscience behind it. In addition to understanding the imposter syndrome, most of the day will be devoted to practical ways of addressing it, overcoming it, and finally embracing the authentic and capable person you really are!
