Kick Imposter Syndrome to the Curb

Imposter syndrome — the persistent belief that one is undeserving of her successes and will be discovered as a “fraud” — is a hot topic in the professional community, particularly for women. As we lean into 2021, it’s time to banish this invisible adversary, and we’re creating an open space for professional women to do just that.

The NC Chamber invites you to participate in a complimentary Imposter Syndrome Working Group, with the next session taking place on September 29, 2021. This initiative brings together professional women across North Carolina on a regular basis to share their experiences and strategies for conquering feelings of professional insecurity. One-hour virtual meetings include time for candid sharing, guest speakers, and tailored presentations — all aimed at giving you a modern toolkit for embracing your worth and kicking imposter syndrome to the curb.

1:10 pmPresentation: Redefining Success and Worth at Work

Traditional business and career success is defined by financial and growth terms. Your P&L, your title, your salary. Your span of control. Your follower count, your number of clients, your web traffic.

These traditional definitions of success imply we are always searching for more.  And the pandemic has shaken free a desire to re-examine our lives and careers and truly define what success means for us.

In this talk, we will discuss what would be possible in our lives if we claimed different measures of worth and success. You will leave with new ways to define success and maintain relationship to your own worth.
