Speaker: Dr Hayley Lewis, Chartered Occupational Psychologist, Managing Director, Halo Psychology
Summary: Many of us who support the development of others, as coaches, managers or mentors, are highly likely to come across Impostor Phenomenon (often referred to as syndrome). In this session, Dr Hayley Lewis will take us on an exploration of what IP is (and what it isn’t), the things that might trigger it, what the evidence tells us about it, and some case studies of techniques that have helped clients overcome it.
