It isn’t uncommon to see statistics quoting that imposter syndrome affects as many as 82% of people.
Psychologists Suzanne Imes and Pauline Rose Clance developed the term ‘imposter phenomenon’ in 1978, and the conversation has continued to circle around the core belief that we aren’t as good as we ‘pretend’ to be. Interestingly enough, it is some of the highest skilled, high performers that believe they have fooled onlookers despite their significant accomplishments!
In this courageous and thought-provoking webinar, we will ask whether the language, thinking and labelling of imposter syndrome creates a self-fulfilling prophecy?
Together we will explore –
- The science of the pygmalion effect and self-fulfilling prophecy and how it may relate to our experiences
- The latest research into how language contributes to our feelings and beliefs
- How labels like ‘imposter syndrome’ can help or hinder our thinking
- The role of mindset and strategies we can use to flip or disrupt our thinking
- How individuals, teams and organisations can help contribute to a reduction in imposter thinking
