LESI Women in Licensing Alliance (WILA) & LESI Young Members Congress (YMC) "Imposter syndrome – is it getting in the way?"


Imposter syndrome, identified in 1978 by social psychologists at Georgia State University, is the phenomenon of believing oneself to be undeserving of their achievements, awards and accomplishments. The self‐doubt and fear of being exposed can undermine even the most capable of us, but imposter syndrome does not have to hold us back in life or work. This workshop looks at how to build your confidence as you work through your career successes and failures, realising that confidence is a journey. Daniel Goleman describes healthy confidence being a high sense of self‐awareness with a true understanding of what you are good at so we will focus on that!

LESI WILA’s 3rd Webinar in the 2021‐2022 Speakers Series (co‐hosted by LESI YMC) workshop will share tips and techniques on how to beat Imposter Syndrome by combining interaction, developing self‐awareness and specific actionable steps along with understanding what this phenomenon is.
