- February 24 – Reframing Imposter Syndrome (Guest Speaker Bigibi Haile, Owner, Speakeasy)
A 1985 definition of Impostor syndrome describes it as an “internal experience of intellectual phoniness” (…) in individuals who are highly successful but unable to internalize their success”
This workshop exists because every time I describe imposter syndrome, rooms full of women (and men) raise their hand in recognition. By some accounts 70% of all adults will experience impostor syndrome in their career at some point. A 2019 study showed 82% of solo business owners “experienced Imposter Syndrome regularly or daily”.
The ubiquity of this syndrome is really surprising and concerning, yet few addresses it in depth.
This conversation hopes to provide you with an understanding of what it Imposter Syndrome is and tools to put you fully in the driver’s seat.
About our guest speaker:
Bibigi Haile is the founder of Speakeasy.work, a career management and personal branding consultancy. She works with women in middle and senior management roles helping them make bold moves in their lives and careers as they discover the possibilities that come with finding and owning their unique voice
Prior to her coaching days, Bibigi spent 15+ years as an organizational development and change management consultant supporting senior leaders and executives to design and execute major change projects. She often found herself becoming a trusted advisor to her female clients, and quickly realized that in middle management roles, women could feel very lonely when it came to discussing their professional challenges. The realization of her client’s struggles led her to pivot her consultancy towards one focused on individual transformation and change.
Bibigi is also and especially the mother of a wise 5-year-old, a third culture kid, a podcast and book nerd and a running enthusiast.
