Let's talk about impostor syndrome, When: Tuesday 10th November @ 7.30 till 8.45 BST
Yes, this primarily affects mostly women, and relates to feelings of being an imposter (especially in the work environment) where you feel like you don't belong and don’t actually deserve your job and accomplishments? The idea that you’ve only succeeded due to luck, and not because of your talent or qualifications—was first identified in 1978 by psychologists Pauline Rose Clance and Suzanne Imes. In their paper, they theorized that women were uniquely affected by impostor syndrome. We look at how we can get rid of that feeling once and for all. We will also be joined by guest teacher, JoBee Project, voice coach and former contestant of The Voice in Poland. She featured on The Slowdown podcast on the topic Dissecting your confidence and words to enlighten. Jo will be showing us empowering techniques to build confidence in how we project ourselves.
Vulnerability as a power, When: Tuesday 8th December @ 7.30 till 8.45 BST
Who would have thought vulnerability would be empowering? It is only since Dr Brené Brown, a research professor who got the world to notice this feeling more in one of the most-watched TED talks of all time. She has spent the past two decades studying courage, vulnerability, shame, and empathy. For this last session in the series, we dissect vulnerability and explore how this feeling can empower us more. We will be joined by guest teacher Laura Lawton, jazz singer and burlesque dance teacher who will be showing us some subtle confidence moves with our clothes on!
