Dealing with Imposter Syndrome

by Dr John Shepherd Lim

04 Jan 2023, Wed | 10.30am – 12noon | Livestream


About the seminar:

What is imposter syndrome? Perfectionists, workaholism, the need to be perceived as the “expert” that knows everything, and the perception that asking for help is a sign of weakness or incompetence are some common mindsets that underlie imposter syndrome. Imposter syndrome involves feelings of self-doubt and personal incompetence usually due to overthinking which you will tend to evaluate the tasks you are entrusted with and the support given to you. You tend to doubt your abilities at your work which affect your mental and emotional wellbeing. The session will introduce ways to cope with imposter syndrome by performing a reality check, questions to ask yourself and checking blindspots, develop self-compassion and to develop a growth mindset.
