Mental Health & Well-being Webinar: Perfectionism & Imposter Syndrome
When: Wed, 28.09.2022 9:30 AM until 10:30 AM
After last year's successful webinar series on Mental Health & Well-being topics, we want to continue this series and offer a new webinar series for you!
Together with Desiree Dickerson we created a super exciting series of three webinars that will run on September, 28, October, 27, and November, 28.
These webinars are targeted for all status groups. Please do not hesitate and register today!
All webinars will start with a 45-minute formal presentation with slides followed by a 15-minute Q&A session. There will be a handout / summary sheet for distribution after each webinar.
This webinar will focus on the topic of Perfectionism & Imposter Syndrome. We argue that our perfectionism drives us to great heights, to excel, and to maintain our edge. We rarely stop to see the costs it carries. Imposter syndrome distorts the way we see ourselves, our performance, and our capabilities. Both reflect our doubts and fears – fear of being judged, fear of failing, fear of not being good enough, fear of not belonging. They are the product of distorted thinking patterns that we can change.
In this webinar we explore:
- the true costs of these doubts and fears, and the extent to which they impact on our productivity, mental clarity, and our joy for what we do.
- simple ways to notice when our perfectionism or imposter syndrome is tripping us up.
- simple ways to reshape our inner critic to be more objective and more compassionate, so that we can thrive thanks to the voice in our head rather than in spite of it.
