In this Lunch and Learn, Adrian Ashton shares the findings of research he’s undertaken into various studies and academic papers on this topic that have been published over the last century – and which reveal that feelings of self-doubt might not be something you want to banish after all, but if cherished, could actually act as a superpower in your business.

Adrian is an award-winning enterprise adviser, working with organisations of all types, across multiple sectors. His research into impostor syndrome and subsequently self-publishing a book based on it that’s become a global best-seller came about by accident.

Key takeaways from this session:

  • Discover how harnessing feelings of ‘impostorism’ can act as a superpower in your business

  • Find out why listening to your ‘inner impostor’ is the best thing you can do

  • Learn why everyone feels self-doubt differently and what this means when you approach it
