For many of us, we are our own worst critic. Our inner doubts and fears can diminish our ability to fully flourish as our authentic selves. In this two-part workshop, we will explore feelings of imposter syndrome and how we can move towards self-acceptance as “humble realists.” In order to stop feeling like an imposter, we need to stop thinking like one.

Learning Objectives

  1. Gain clarity about the reality of imposter phenomenon through a healthy and constructive lens
  2. Learn how to recognize the feelings and coping mechanisms of your inner critic
  3. Discuss how you can reframe these feelings towards a more compassionate view of your own self-competence.
