About This Workshop

The more we know, the less we think we know; this is a common phenomenon experienced by those acquiring new skills. Imposter Syndrome is the phenomenon of behaviour stemming from the belief that, despite proof otherwise, we are vocational imposters and frauds, and that we have been duped by our own rationalised thoughts into believing that we overstate skills that we don’t actually possess. By using Inquiry to dissolve these false thoughts and their underlying beliefs leading to the discovery and proof of truth, we can live fully and authentically in the freedom to embrace our passion and enthusiastically present to the world our fully-qualified professional selves.

This will be a 1-hour workshop led by an expert speaker, along with some networking opportunities after the workshop concludes.

Takeaways

Learn to identify and define Imposter Syndrome, distinguish between the social self and the essential self, and assess the physical and emotional response to fraudulent thoughts through confirmation of truth.
