Imposter Syndrome in the Workplace


Impostor syndrome is doubting our talents, knowledge or skills, despite often being qualified and experienced professionals. This can prevent us from achieving our full potential and from thinking, feeling and being our best in the workplace. This course aims to tackle this growing issue and promote a positive wellbeing culture in the workplace. It is suitable for staff at all levels.

  • Understand what we mean by imposter syndrome and how it can affect the individual, the team and the organisation as a whole
  • Identify symptoms and triggers of imposter syndrome
  • Learn practical strategies to deal with imposter syndrome in our day to day life
  • Develop psychological safety as a workplace practice
  • Grow confident in planning for the future, accentuating strengths in ourselves and others 
Delivery method

Learners will have access to our learning platform where they can refer to the materials, watch extra resources such as videos and interactive activities and access links to organisations, for those that want to take their learning further. 

A full day is recommended for staff with little or no previous experience. For those with prior knowledge, a half day is recommended as a condensed session with post course materials.
