Webinar | Confidence and Imposter Syndrome

Does fear of failure hold you back from pursuing your dreams? Have you ever felt like you didn’t belong, or weren’t worthy? Are you overly negative or critical of yourself, and worry about what others think?

If you feel stressed, anxious or stuck, you’re not alone! But did you know that your own mind may be holding you back? Discover how managing your mind can transform your performance and career.

Join us for a free webinar with Dean Coomer of Chimp Management, which helps people working in all walks of life get the best out of themselves and others, using ‘The Chimp Model’.

During this webinar you’ll learn:

  • What are the characteristics of low confidence and imposter syndrome?
  • What role does the mind – and your inner ‘Chimp’ and ‘Human’ – play in your performance?
  • How can you learn to manage your mind to be your best self?
