About this course

At some point in our careers, many of us will suffer from Imposter Syndrome. It’s that feeling of self-doubt you get when you look around and think that everyone is more talented, qualified or capable than you – and you fear that one day you’ll get found out. 

Ironically these feelings can be more pronounced the more senior and successful you get.  

Join Tanya Livesey, Global MD, Creative, at The Talent Business, in this Micro-Masterclass as she talks about how this common issue can affect even the most seemingly confident of us, especially in the competitive creative industry, and provides strategies and activities to help.

This is a practical and engaging session for ambitious creatives or creative leaders, which will help you spot Imposter Syndrome in yourself and others – giving you tips and strategies to make sure it doesn’t hold you or your team back.

This Micro-Masterclass should take around 1-hour to complete.
