Imposter Phenomenon: Introduction
Course Description:
The notion of being not good enough and the stress of feeling like you’re just about to get found out can be damaging and draining.  This session aims to identify what the impostor phenomenon actually is, where it comes from and why it’s so difficult to diminish.

The sense that at some point you're going to be exposed as a faker can be crippling to achievement and can cause anxiety and overwork. For those who experience this often, it can lead to depression and disengagement.

This session will cover:

  • What the impostor phenomenon is (and what it is not!)
  • Where it comes from and how it’s experienced
  • What actions you could take to support you


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

  • Understand if and how the imposter phenomenon affects you personally
  • Learn practical ways to deal with this phenomenon
  • Listen to others’ experiences who may be dealing with similar challenges
