Overcome imposter syndrome and win the game
As women, do we play to win or are we hard-wired to try not to lose? Clearly, the two are not the same. Trying not to lose is reactionary. It’s prevention. The mindset is about playing it safe over playing your best. This alone prevents us from winning. Imposter syndrome is one of the root causes for playing to not lose. Imposter syndrome is characterized by self-deprecating thoughts such as “Am I good enough for my role”, “Will others find out that I don’t belong here?”. As a result, we end up playing to not lose and do not present our best winning, confident self.  This interactive panel discussion provides tools and techniques for audience members to overcome imposter syndrome and win in their professional and personal lives.
