RGU Knowledge Bites for Business

From Imposter to Superhero!

This video will examine the reasons why imposter syndrome can take hold. Participants will be encouraged to explore ways to overcome imposter syndrome both within themselves and within the teams and/or organisations that they lead.

Do you ever feel that you are winging it? Just getting by? Are you scared of being ‘found out’, to be somehow less competent than everyone seems to think you are? You may be suffering from imposter syndrome; but look around….two out of three of us are having these exact same feelings of self-doubt, usually in the face of very clear evidence to the contrary.

This session will focus on silencing your inner imposter by surfacing the super powers within us all. Pull on your cape and join us to explore ways of emerging from the pandemic with a new confidence in yourself and your career – whatever stage that may be at.
