Coaching to Promote Self-Worth & Overcoming Impostor Syndrome

Expand your coaching knowledge

Impostor Syndrome is the experience that many high-achieving people have of feeling a fraud, of not deserving their success, a fear of being 'found out', of not being as competent as other people think they are.

It is characterised by chronic self-doubt, feeling phoney, attributing success to luck or other external factors, feeling unable to live up to expectations, etc. This interactive workshop will demonstrate strategies for coaching clients to overcome Impostor Syndrome and replace it with a solid understanding of their own self-worth.
