Salon May 2017: Imposter Syndrome
Event on 2017-05-10 17:30:00
LIghts, camera, action…………………..freeze!!! What am I doing here! It’s a feeling most women experience, whether in a meeting, giving a presentation, chatting at an event, at a posh dinner, in a gym class…………………do we need to go on?! Basically the situation is going on and you suddenly feel like a fraud. That's imposter syndrome. First coined in 1978 by clinical psychologists Pauline Clance and Suzanne Imes, it was identified as a syndrome where people are convinced that they are frauds and do not deserve the success they have achieved, despite external evidence of their competence. Putting success down to luck, timing or the ability to deceive others, it is thought to be particularly common in high-achieving women. So let’s explore it, Salon Members, let's discuss the causes and have a good old debate around this syndrome! All with some wine and nibbles. What’s not to like! And if that hasn’t grabbed you yet how about the best bit………….the opportunity to spend time with two fantastic actors, Joy Sanders and Karen Traynor who will bring elements to life using drama and in addition will give us some amazing and entertaining insights into their world of acting and performing. Exit stage left, scared already………
