The radical changes in the external environment might make you feel more afraid of not having answers, wondering if you are doing enough, anxious about being exposed as a fraud (and then being rejected or isolated as a result) and insecure about your work and accomplishments.

This is not uncommon (even in senior leadership positions) and is known as ‘Imposter Syndrome’.

First identified more than 40 years ago by psychologists Pauline Rose Clance and Suzanne Imes, this phenomenon is characterised by the feeling that our successes can be attributed to mere luck, rather than our own skills, leadership abilities or qualifications.

What if this weren’t true in reality?  What might be possible for you if you knew you were absolutely able to do what you needed, or wanted, to do?

During this Masterclass you will better understand:

  • What self-doubt (Imposter Syndrome) is all about, why it affects leaders and why it may feel more challenging than ever before.
  • Different ways leaders can feel like “imposters” and how to recognise these.
  • Understanding more about your own “script/story” that underlies your self-doubt.
  • A practical process for engaging with your Imposter Syndrome.

This Masterclass is suitable for any individual interested in learning more about how self-doubt impacts their work and leadership abilities.
