Imposter Syndrome

Keynotes & Workshops 

Recent studies suggest that up to 70% of people will experience Imposter Syndrome in their lives. For some people, the feelings of being an imposter are short-lived but for others, feelings of incompetence can last for many years.  This can cause people to feel self-doubt, anxiety and worry leading to cycles of procrastination or over-preparation.

Using The Chimp Model, we can work with you or people within your organisation to break these cycles. Allowing people to fulfil their potential and live happier, more successful lives.

What is Imposter Syndrome?

Imposter Syndrome is when a person has intense feelings that their achievements are undeserved causing worry or anxiety that they may be exposed as a fraud. Feeling like an imposter can happen to anyone across a range of occupations or other life events.

 Some common feelings you may experience with Imposter Syndrome are:

  • I don’t deserve the success I have.
  • My achievements are based on luck, not skill. 
  • People are going to find out that I am a fraud. 
  • I am incapable of the task at hand. 

Using The Chimp Model, you can learn to manage these unwanted thoughts and behaviours. Our team of Psychological Skills Mentors can help you to do this, either on a one-to-one basis or a part of group workshop or bespoke programme.  


Outcome Objectives

Helping you gain insight into the neuroscience behind imposter syndrome, will enable you to have a better understanding of it and acquire the skills to be able to be more effective and successful in managing your stress.

The intention of our workshops is to be information giving, highly practical, and engaging. All of our workshops will firstly introduce the cornerstones of the Chimp Paradox model.

This workshop on effective stress management, in addition to the above, will include topics such as:

  • Explore what imposter syndrome is and why it happens  
  • Share examples and experiences of imposter syndrome
  • Give ideas and suggestions for managing imposter syndrome 
  • Have a better understanding of imposter syndrome and what it means to you
  • Practical ways to better manage self-critical thoughts and doubts about competencies

What were your key takeaways from this event?

Realising that imposter syndrome was stopping me from talking to mentors. Realising how wholly positive the chimp management strategies are. Re-invigorating my whole approach to the chimp work. Finding my development time massively more productive. So enthused by this event, and feeling ready to love my life ( after 59 years) Having a very fun, interesting and inclusive experience, which has kept me ridiculously buoyant and enthusiastic.

“Chimp Management delivered to our group with a passion and understanding of our specific requirements. Multinational, multi-cultural, different ages, experiences and objectives were no issue and all participants took away a great deal from the workshop..”

About Chimp Management

We are a unique company with a small number of specialist mentors all selected personally by our CEO, Professor Steve Peters. Everything we teach and facilitate is based on neuroscience and the findings of Prof Peters’ many years of work into the functioning and management of the mind.

My Hidden Chimp is an educational book for primary school-aged children to work through with an adult or by themselves.

The book offers parents, teachers and carers some ideas and thoughts on how to help children to develop healthy habits for life.

It can be used in conjunction with our Primary School programmes, allowing pupils to continue developing their Chimp Management skills independently.
