Explore how impostor syndrome may be holding you back and how to empower yourself in this insightful workshop with life coach Fiona Buckland.
There’s a curious psychological phenomenon common among high achievers: many of them don’t own their accomplishments and accolades. Reportedly, 70% of outwardly successful people have at one time or another experienced the “impostor syndrome”. They fear being exposed as a fraud and being rejected by others if they show pride in their achievements.
Affecting both men and women in every walk of life, regardless of their industry, this can lead to anxiety, self-sabotage, burnout and depression. In this experiential masterclass, life coach Fiona Buckland will help you discover not only how to get a handle on “feeling like a fraud”, but how to use these feelings to increase your personal power.
You will learn:
- What is impostor syndrome?
- Its psychological, social and cultural origins
- How it affects us negatively and why that matters
- Famous sufferers
- What can help – including interactive exercises
