Programme outline

Do you ever feel you may be ‘found out’ for not being good enough? Despite being outwardly successful? This is known as ‘imposter syndrome’ and Peter will explain how it has damaged careers and businesses, show you how to overcome it, and so avoid the same traps.

In this presentation, Peter will …

  • Reveal the surprising factors – including COVID and hybrid working, that cause imposter syndrome.
  • Share real-life examples of how it has self-sabotaged high flying careers, paralysed decision making, brought healthy businesses to their knees, and even destroyed marriages.
  • Provide proven ways to spot it in yourself and others, and share trusted techniques to take control to systematically remove it from your life – or anyone else you know who maybe suffering.
  • Show you the hidden financial costs of imposter syndrome, and other self-limiting beliefs at all levels in your organisation based upon research that found 40% of employees have suffered from it.
  • Explain what leaders can do to create an empowering culture that frees a workforce from these constraining beliefs, allowing them to make better decisions, faster, and get more done in less time.
  • Share additional resources to help you and your employees thrive within a blended office / home-working world, where spotting and dealing with unhelpful beliefs remotely is more important than ever before.

In addition …

Peter will give all attendees a special VIP code for free access to the VIC system.

The learning outcomes from Peter’s presentation include:

  • How to spot if you, or someone you know, is suffering from imposter syndrome.
  • Why it’s vital that you fix it – for you and your business.
  • How to fix imposter syndrome.

Who will benefit?
