Research shows that over 70% of adults may experience imposter syndrome at least once in their lifetime. Even high achievers, in spite of their objective success, can fail to internalise their accomplishments and usually attribute them to luck.
Imposter syndrome can be a cause of significant anxiety and low self-esteem, and to keep this from happening, people develop a range of unhelpful coping strategies such as perfectionism and procrastination.
But how can you overcome your imposter syndrome?
The Women in Sustainability Herts Hub is delighted to host an evening workshop during which we will look at what imposter syndrome is, how it manifests and how you can bust it so that you start enjoying your achievements, lower your anxiety and give yourself the credit you deserve.
We will also explore how you can show up, increase your visibility and make an impact, once (or even before!) you have conquered your imposter syndrome.
What’s more, you’ll be able to connect and network meaningfully with other women in sustainability that, like you, want to make a difference.
We are delighted to be guided in this process by two amazing experts, Emma Gosling and Amy Burnett.
Emma Gosling is a Transformation Hypnotherapist and Mindset Mentor who guides high-achieving women to live life on their terms and increase their impact, income and fulfillment. Layers of childhood, cultural and societal trauma and conditioning may have created their many limiting beliefs about their worth and feelings of shame or guilt around having money and success.
Emma works to transform the silent struggles of high-achieving female founders and executives to stop over-giving their money, energy and time, have firmer boundaries and secure their financial future.
Amy Burnett is the Founder and Director of video production company Visible Impact.
Amy works with ambitious women to create video that communicates with impact and influence. She helps them increase their visibility, amplify their voice and make them memorable in an authentic and human way. She is an advocate of more diversity at the top level, not least regarding gender. With 15 years behind a lens, what Amy does best is video, and she wants to fill the online world with videos of amazing women, sharing their thoughts, ideas and passions, so they can inspire others and be a part of the change we need.
