Event description
Dr. Lisa Orbé-Austin talks us through the Imposter Syndrome: how to overcome it and address the issues standing in the way of the success.

About this Event

Imposter syndrome is a phenomenon where people find it difficult to internalise their accomplishments, skills and experiences, and overwork to compensate for their own perceived lack of ability. 

Modern work cultures are often engineered purposely to inspire productivity and high performance in ways that incite insatiable desire for approval and a sense of imposter syndrome. 

The paradox of a person with imposter syndrome is that they are not a fraud that they perceive themselves to be; in fact, they are often high achievers who are extremely competent and able to really excel. So, how do you overcome imposter syndrome and unlock your true potential? 

Lisa Orbe-Austin is a licensed psychologist, executive coach, and organizational consultant whose book, “𝐎𝐰𝐧 𝐘𝐨𝐮𝐫 𝐆𝐫𝐞𝐚𝐭𝐧𝐞𝐬𝐬: 𝐎𝐯𝐞𝐫𝐜𝐨𝐦𝐞 𝐈𝐦𝐩𝐨𝐬𝐭𝐞𝐫 𝐒𝐲𝐧𝐝𝐫𝐨𝐦𝐞, 𝐁𝐞𝐚𝐭 𝐒𝐞𝐥𝐟-𝐃𝐨𝐮𝐛𝐭, 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐒𝐮𝐜𝐜𝐞𝐞𝐝 𝐢𝐧 𝐋𝐢𝐟𝐞, answers exactly that. 

Lisa joins us onstage to train us to identify the root causes of imposter syndrome, recognize our natural skills and strengths, and gain the confidence to lead or simply speak up for yourself.
