Event description

Description

You’ve got the position you went for. It’s exciting and stretches you in ways you know will help you grow in your career. Your boss constantly praises your work, your peers really enjoy working with you and your direct reports (should you have them) really love working for you.


The problem is, you have this constant feeling that you are a fraud. That any moment, your boss and the people you work with are going to find out that you are not capable, and you are going to get fired. That you do not deserve the success you have achieved, and that everything that you have accomplished to date is just luck, timing or tricking others into believing that you are more intelligent and competent than you believe yourself to be.


No, you are not the only one. This persistent thought process is called Imposter Syndrome, and it usually shows up as these responses:

  • Perfectionism
  • Overworking
  • Undermining one’s own achievements
  • Fear of failure
  • Discounting praise


In this month’s Women in Tech Coaching Circle, we are going to explore what this feeling is all about: where it comes from and what triggers it, and what you can do to fight these feelings, and take control of this “fraud” response when it shows up. Our intention is to have you walk away with a clear understanding of what triggers you, what you can do to interrupt the voice in your head, and how can you build your resilient masterful self.

MORE ABOUT OUR COACHING SERIES

This is an extension of the Girl Geeks Toronto presentation given by Mic Berman and Tara Rhodes, gd | Grossman Dorland, on Tuesday, November 4, 2017. There wasn't enough time to dive deep into the topic, so we wanted to offer you an opportunity to join a small group of us for a more hands on version of the talk.
