Webinar: The Impostor Syndrome. Why successful people often feel like frauds

17. 10. 2023 | 09.00 Uhr - 11.00 Uhr

How can it be that so many clever, competent and capable people can feel that they are just one step away from being exposed as a complete fraud? Despite evidence that they are performing well they can still have that lurking fear that at any moment someone is going to tap them on the shoulder and say "We need to have a chat". The session will explain why high performing people often doubt their abilities and find it hard to enjoy their successes. It will also show the links to perfectionism and self-handicapping strategies such as procrastination, avoidance and overcommitment.

This webinar is organized as part of the Mental Health Awareness Week at Helmholtz Munich and open to external doctoral researchers and postdocs.
