Imposter syndrome: overcoming your inner critic (morning session)


02/08/2019 09:30






About this event

Michelle Obama shared last year that "I still have a little [bit of] impostor syndrome, it never goes away, that you're actually listening to me. It doesn't go away, that feeling that you shouldn't take me that seriously. What do I know? I share that with you because we all have doubts in our abilities, about our power and what that power is".

This resonated across the globe, as more people shared their own experiences in self-doubt and feeling that they didn't deserve to be where they are, whether in their jobs, their families or their wider accomplishments.

Imposter syndrome is described as 'a psychological term referring to a pattern of behaviour where people doubt their accomplishments and have a persistent, often internalised fear of being exposed as a fraud'.

Children in Scotland are delighted to announce that Sophie Montagne will deliver this workshop to help you learn about imposter syndrome and ways to overcome it.

The session will involve Sophie sharing some of her own inspirational story, before exploring the challenges of imposter syndrome and sharing practical strategies and exercises for harnessing and overcoming your own self-doubts.

Please note that this session will be repeated in the afternoon of 2 August 2019 (13.30-16.30). Click here if you wish to attend the afternoon session instead.
