We would be delighted if you would join us for an interactive talk on The Imposter Syndrome by Caroline Holt.
Essential to know
Even though you’re successful, do you sometimes feel like an imposter? The Imposter Syndrome is now recognised as a common experience amongst talented people in business. They attribute their success to luck, discount their capabilities and fear being exposed as a fraud. They constantly strive for better results and are generally the high achievers as a result. However, this striving can lead to burn-out from an overly driven need to succeed, or fear of failure and being revealed as a fraud can stop them from leaning in to more senior positions.
Sheryl Sandberg (COO of Facebook and author of Lean In: Women, Work, and the Will to Lead) says that, to lean in fully, women need to get comfortable with their success. When we really own and appreciate who we are, then we can denounce the demands and accusations of our internal imposter and realise all of our leadership potential.
For members of WiBF, this event is free of charge, for other guests there will be a fee of £8.00.
Refreshments and canapés will be served.
Spaces are limited for this event; we therefore invite your prompt response to avoid disappointment.
