Imposter Syndrome

Do you want to stop feeling like a fraud in your career?

“I have written eleven books, but each time I think, uh-oh, they’re going to find me out now.”

Maya Angelou.

If you feel like you are going to be found out that you are not good enough, you are not alone! It is estimated that 70% of us either have, will, or currently are struggling with the Imposter Syndrome. The term was first coined in 1978 by two psychologists, Dr Pauline Clance and Dr Suzanne Imes, when they found that high performing women, no matter their accomplishments, still remained convinced they didn’t deserve their success or accolades and that they were, in fact, a fraud. These successful, amazing women dismissed their successes as luck or some kind of deception on their part in convincing someone they were better than they actually are. It’s not unique to women however, men are just as likely to experience imposter syndrome – it’s a human thing. 

Feelings of being an imposter can ebb and flow over time – with some periods of your life where you feel very much like an imposter, and other times you will have the inner confidence in your abilities. You can also experience feeling like an imposter in one area of your life, for example, your career, but feel totally confident in another, for example, your relationships.

If you are interested in learning more about this phenomenon, would like to learn some simple strategies that can help you overcome these feelings, as well as deepen your own self-awareness* (a key element in supporting you to feel more confident), this event is for you! The event is an interactive workshop where you will be given lots of ideas and insights so you can show up fully, and excel in, the career you love! 

This event and associated webinar will be led by Maddison Coaching’s life and executive coach Lindsey Hood who specialises in working with those suffering from Imposter Syndrome.
*At an extra cost an Everything DiSC psychometric profile can be conducted for you. You will need to complete it online and your individual results will be debriefed one to one at a time to be arranged. Further details of this option will be provided once you register your expression of interest.
