Have you ever avoided applying for a job because you didn’t feel qualified? Or submitted a project while sure the feedback would be horrible? Imposter syndrome is typically defined as feelings of fraud and self-doubt, and most of us have experienced it at some point.

In this session, we’ll look at types and examples of imposter syndrome, how it hinders and helps us, and techniques for managing it. By understanding how imposter syndrome works against us and learning how to make it work for us, we can deal with these feelings, be more productive, and feel confident in our accomplishments.

Chris is also giving a workshop at TCUK18: The Build-a-Workshop Workshop.
