Does it feel like your colleagues are about to discover that you have no idea (for certain at least) what the heck you are doing? Do you believe you can handle your job? Welcome to project management. Actually, welcome to life! Everyone, to some degree, feels self-doubt. Women and minorities are especially susceptible to developing imposter syndrome. In this presentation, Tammara Buckey will go over what imposter syndrome is; how it can show up in your life as a project manager; how it can affect the people around you; useful tips and techniques for how to overcome moments of imposter syndrome situationally in the short-term; and ways to embrace imposter syndrome and use it to your advantage in the long-term. Audience members with imposter syndrome will walk away feeling hopeful and understood with actionable tools they can implement in their lives. Audience members without imposter syndrome will walk away with a general understanding of it, along with methods to detect and address it when they see others struggling with it.
