Study Plus Inclusive Careers: Imposter Syndrome by Sal Pearman, 12:30-15:00, Online

As much as we want to stay optimistic, focussed, and productive, it can be very easy to slip into negative patterns of thinking. To ask, “Am I good enough?”, “Can I do this?”, “Am I a fake?”. With the huge impact of a more digital and global community it’s easy to feel less capable, less confident, and perhaps less worthy than our peers.

This half-day workshop will demystify the truth behind Imposter Syndrome and will provide practical tools and techniques to accurately understand, communicate and celebrate our abilities.

Over the half-day workshop, we will cover:

· What is Imposter Syndrome (is it a real thing?)

· How we might experience Imposter Syndrome and how it can impact us

· How to accurately label our skills and experiences

· Challenging negative self-talk and self-doubt

· Mental reprogramming: thinking differently and thinking positively

It covers:

· The link between behaviours at work and perceptions of performance

· The dos and don’ts of phones and social media in work

· The practical, often unspoken, rules, from time keeping, to what to wear (even more confusing in our new hybrid world!) to what is expected in 1:1s

· Office politics, reading team dynamics and resolving conflict in teams

· The session shares some practical exercises that help attendees to understand how to approach new situations and tips on how to build good relationships with teams.

Practice Group Assessment Centre Exercises, 13:00-14:00, Cornwallis East CESR2, Canterbury Campus

Assessment Centres are a common part of the graduate recruitment process, with group exercises being a key task. This is an interactive workshop, where you will practice a selection of group exercises and receive group feedback, to give you practical experience. Exercises will be common to assessment centres across different sectors so will focus on the skills element rather than industry specific knowledge.

This session is an on-campus only event.
