Overcoming the Impostor Syndrome
It is staggering how many people experience imposter syndrome. Did you know that Meryl Streep, Albert Einstein and Maya Angelou all suffered from this condition? It can have negative effects on our work and the way that we view ourselves in the workplace.
The Imposter Syndrome is the feeling where we feel that we don’t deserve the position of responsibility that we have. Often find it difficult to take pride in our achievements and have the feeling that we are a ‘fraud’.
At the Civil Service College, we tailor our courses to each attendee’s role and organisations, ensuring that each delegate gets the most out of the training. Our courses and trainers are continuously updated and evaluated to ensure that we are always delivering the best service possible.
Participants will gain a clear understanding of what Imposter Syndrome is and will have the opportunity to start thinking
through its impact on their behaviour. Participants will also be provided with the tools needed to become more effective and confident individuals through practical means. This course provides an environment to discuss issues in a small classroom environment.
