 Overcoming 
 imposter 
 syndrome 

Imposter Syndrome: Unpacking how we all feel. The imposter syndrome is the inability to own your successes. Have you ever felt like you don’t belong, that you’re not good enough? Do you worry that you’ve fooled people and you’ll be exposed as an imposter or fraud? Imposters tend to deflect praise and minimize their accomplishments. They attribute their successes to external sources like “being lucky”. It’s been argued that women who feel like imposters lack confidence. But perhaps women’s confidence is chipped away at by unconscious gender & racial biases, toxic workplaces and childhood experiences.

 

Are you frustrated that women’s confidence is often perceived as arrogance?  Do you find it exasperating that we live in a world of double-standards where the burden of proof for women’s competence is so much higher? If so then this is the workshop for you! Join Professor Maja in this energizing and information-jammed session to explore why the imposter syndrome affects so many of us and how to effectively manage it.

LEARNING OBJECTIVES

Understand the common fears behind the imposter syndrome and identify how it shows up in your life​.

Discuss how our confidence & communication styles are influenced by unconscious gender & racial biases.

Learn the latest research on confidence coming out of Prof Maja’s 5-year global study.

On behalf of Insurance Business, it has been an absolute privilege to partner with Professor Maja as our keynote in the 6-city fall Women in Insurance Virtual Conference Series. From our audience in London to Chicago to Toronto, Professor Maja quickly demonstrated her unique way of both relating to attendees, while also challenging them to be better with tangible steps to grow as a leader. Her powerful talk on Forget the Apologies, and Learn to Lead with Confidence set the tone for the day and is one of the best topics not only seen at the WII conference, but across our many verticals. Thank you, Professor Maja, for partnering with IB Magazine to empower and encourage women globally!
