Overcoming Imposter Syndrome

A presentation at Redgate UX Meetup by Imran Afzal

We all want to be successful in our lives, both personally and professionally. However, sometimes it can feel overwhelming as we strive towards our goals. Success can put us in the spotlight, whether that’s starting a new job or getting promoted. It’s during these moments that we can start to question our ability to meet expectations. It can feel like we’ve stumbled through to our achievements, and sooner or later, we’ll get found out. These are signs of Imposter Syndrome. Surprisingly, these are also signs of high achieving individuals. Imposter Syndrome is a very real, but difficult topic to discuss. During this talk, Imran will discuss the root causes of Imposter Syndrome and the impact it can have on our lives. The talk will explore many aspects of imposter Syndrome, while also providing guidance on overcoming it and developing self-confidence.
