"I have spent my years since Princeton, while at law school and in my various professional jobs, not feeling completely a part of the worlds I inhabit. I am always looking over my shoulder wondering if I measure up." ~Sonia Sotomayor, First Hispanic Supreme Court Justice
Imposter syndrome can have several negative effects on individuals at work and on an organization as a whole. A person who suffers from this syndrome feels as though they don’t deserve the success they have achieved, despite all evidence pointing to the contrary. They feel like a fraud and think that they are never really good enough.
While impostor syndrome is not an official diagnosis, it is a real psychological phenomenon, which can cause a great deal of stress. Negative effects of this syndrome on individuals at work and on their careers can include:
- Stress and anxiety
- Low self-esteem
- Missing opportunities (for example, because they might feel they are not good enough to apply for a job for which they are, in fact, qualified)
- Burnout (as they always work too hard, so they can prove themselves)
- In extreme cases, depression
During this session, participants will learn about imposter syndrome and its impact on individuals and organizations.
By the end of this session, participants should be able to:
- Identify what imposter syndrome is.
- Identify the causes of imposter syndrome and its effects on individuals and organizations.
- Employ methods to reduce or eliminate imposter syndrome.
