Moving Beyond Imposter Syndrome

In the workplace, in our economy and across society … women’s voices, experiences and energy contribute to real change. Yet progress on equity seems frustratingly elusive.

One of the many barriers to women’s leadership is self-limiting beliefs, or the concept of Imposter Syndrome which is this feeling of not ‘deserving’ your accomplishments, that you’re not good enough at your job, or you don’t belong.

In this video, we are joined by three LV alumni from our Women’s Leadership programs who share their firsthand experience of Imposter Syndrome and their tips for moving beyond it.


If you are looking to gain a deeper understanding and to enhance your own leadership skills, we have two women’s leadership programs, depending on where you are at in your leadership journey:

Our upcoming three-day Women’s Leadership Program retreat (in May) is for mid-to-senior leaders looking to enhance their skills, confidence and build on their network to be a change-maker in their organisation or community.

Or for emerging women leaders looking to increase self-awareness, understand their own leadership strengths and places for growth, Women Leading Now is a two-day and one-evening virtually-delivered program, offering the chance to learn, share and reset (with a program commencing in July and another in November).
