Breaking Down ‘Imposter Syndrome’

22nd February 2021 @ 7:30 pm - 8:45 pm

22 & 23 Feb 2021

19:30 – 20:45 GMT

‘Breaking Down “Imposter Syndrome”‘ with Dr Sabina Strachan of how2glu

About this Event

If you often attribute your success to luck and discount the significance of your successes then these beliefs could be described as the ‘Imposter Phenomenon’. This workshop will provide some context / a brief overview of the phenomenon, common beliefs and behaviours that can characterise it, and discuss reasons why we might feel this way in different circumstances, particularly in the context of undertaking a PhD.

Through small group work using glucard™ tools you will have the opportunity to identify your own values and success measures for your research and your existing ‘soft’ skill strengths. We will look at how you can harness skills and develop strategies – such as sharing experiences and gathering and reflecting on evidence and feedback – that can challenge Imposter Phenomenon.

You will also begin to map out small, practical and achievable actions to begin to diminish the potentially limiting effects of the phenomenon on your future PhD experience. You will be guided through the glucard™ activities by Sabina who will share her own experiences of the phenomenon, graphically illustrate concepts and signpost further resources.

This course is run over two evenings (22 & 23 February) from 19:30-20:45 each night.
