There is a good and a bad kind of doubt. A little bit of good doubt motivates us to test things out and forces us to expose ourselves to alternatives that can help us be better. But strong feelings of self-doubt and personal incompetence can be in our way to do our work, feel happy, etc. Despite our education, experience, and accomplishments, we can doubt our abilities. To counter these feelings, some might end up working harder or hold themselves to ever higher standards.
Is imposter syndrome familiar to you? Do you sometimes experience it yourself? Or do you see your team members, stakeholders or others experiencing it when you facilitate collective work? This workshop will give you new ways to overcome your impostor syndrome when you are in a leading role, as well as tools to support your audience in accessing their inner power and using their voice for the collective’s greater good. The workshop is for professionals who have a responsibility of ensuring that all individuals are able to contribute while helping organisations deliver great work with positive impact. Typically, profiles like team leaders, workshop facilitators, service designers, design strategists, UX designers, etc. hold such responsibilities.
This workshop will take place live via Zoom.
This workshop is worth 2 SDC study points.
