2024 Intensive: Tackling Imposter Syndrome

The 2024 Intensive Conference: Tackling Imposter Syndrome

The Imposter Syndrome is an experience whereby professionals doubt their abilities and fear they are not as competent as others perceive them to be. This experience affects many professionals across various stages of their careers impacting them both personally and professionally.  In this session, Lucy Chapple draws from her recent research into imposter syndrome and her experience as a lawyer to explain the characteristics and drivers of impostor syndrome, shedding light on the common thought patterns and behaviours that contribute to its manifestation. This presentation will provide practical strategies and coping mechanisms to help individuals recognise and manage feelings of self-doubt, fostering a more resilient and confident mindset both individually and in an organisational context.
