Stop Believing the Lie: The Self-Talk of Impostor Syndrome

Keynote | Workshop | Virtual

Ever felt out of place? 
Ever felt like you don’t belong? 
Are you certain everyone is going to discover you aren’t qualified for the leadership position you hold?

Yeah, Dan has too. And he’s ready to talk about it!

It turns out you and Dan aren’t alone. In a recent study, more than 70% of Americans reported these same feelings. This phenomenon is known as Impostor Syndrome and, while it impacts most of us, we have a hard time admitting it to others, much less ourselves.

That’s where this program comes in; Dan Faill works to engage audiences on the issue of Impostor Syndrome but also its underlying causes. He believes that we need to address the lies we tell ourselves and replace them with positive self-talk in order to become better students, leaders, and human beings.
