Impostor syndrome

A 45 minute Case Study by:

About this Case Study

Did you ever feel like a fraud at work?

Have the feeling that at some point, someone is going to find out that you really don't belong where you are? That you are not as smart as other people think?

You are not alone with this; many high-achieving people suffer from the imposter syndrome. But what is it? And why do we suffer from it?

Even when we know we suffer from it, and we have proof of that, we are still impaired by having it. It stops us from following our dreams.

In this session I will try to explore it and suggest ways to fight it.

About the Speaker

Gitte Klitgaard is an agile coach, hugger, friend and much more. She lives and loves agile. She took the oath of non-allegiance. Why fight over methods when we can use that energy to help people?

Gitte wants to change the world by helping people make the right product, by doing it right and most importantly: to have fun doing it. She has a great interest in how people function, how the brain works, what motivates us, how we can feel better about ourselves, how to be perfect in all our imperfections.

She is a geek and passionate about a lot :).
