Imposter Phenomenon: Deeper Dive
Course Description:

This session will explore how IP behaviours and thought patterns could become entrenched in an 'imposter cycle' (Clance, 1985). The session offers attendees to examine what that might mean for them as individuals, academics and leaders/supervisors of others.

A key underpinning is to explore how to 'unpick' the platform 'stories' on which the Imposter phenomenon thrives.

After attending the 1-hour introduction on this topic, re-join Dr Terri Simpkin, who will guide you to explore the ways in which IP behaviours and thought patterns can become entrenched in an 'imposter cycle'

The session enables attendees to examine what that might mean for them as individuals, academics and leaders/supervisors of others. Exploring how to 'unpick' the platform 'stories' on which imposter phenomenon thrives is a key underpinning aim of the session.

This session will cover:

  1. The imposter phenomenon: what is is, what it isn't, and where it comes from
  2. The IP cycle in more depth, reflecting how it might impact you personally and/or in your relationships with others in study, research of HE support/leadership roles
  3. How latent potential can be diminished
  4. Ways to pre-empt your own personal behaviours/thoughts and actions to diminish the impact of IP over time

The session will include opportunities to break out into smaller groups for discussion.


Objectives:

By the end of the course, you will be able to:

  1. Clearly identify your own thoughts, feelings and behaviours associated with the imposter phenomenon
  2. Recognise personal cyclical responses and explore relevant, personally resonant 'interventions'
  3. Determine the situations in which IP might emerge for you and consider responses to them
  4. Examine how workplace structures might exacerbate the IP experience in the self and others
  5. Generate an awareness of how IP may be impacting the work and behaviours of others
  6. Explore personally resonant responses to diminish IP over the longer term
