Imposter Syndrome Essentials Training

Imposter Syndrome - and the burnout it is now proven to create - are two of the biggest issues facing organisations with their teams. But how big is the problem, really?

Knowing How To Spot & Prevent Imposter Syndrome Is An Essential Leadership Skill

Whether you're looking to improve the performance, wellbeing and retention of your team members, or looking to get clients better results, the hidden impact of Imposter Syndrome is unignorable.

But how do you move beyond 'tea and sympathy' and passing on yet more coping strategies?

Fist, you need to know how to spot the warning signs, because people work hard to hide them.

Then you need to know how to raise the conversation, without people hiding round corners to avoid you for the rest of time.

But then what do you say?

Imposter Syndrome 101 gives you the foundations you need to feel confident in leading that conversation, and tools to be able to give people back hope that there are things they can do to set themselves free from Imposter Syndrome, as well as options for how to signpost them to the deeper help they might need.

When a team member comes to me to talk about Imposter Syndrome, I can get so far, but then I don't know what to say or what to do to help them, besides offering sympathy and pep talks.
