Uncovering Imposter Syndrome for EDN
Client: EDN

Since the return to office working, there has been more debate in trade titles and national papers about organisational issues than ever before.

While the merits and drawbacks of home working are discussed on a weekly basis, The Executive Development Network (EDN) needed to find a way to cut through the noise and raise awareness of its management and leadership courses.

We honed in on the issue of imposter syndrome, as a recognisable and yet under discussed issue within the workplace – perhaps due to its very nature. Who wants to admit they don’t feel good enough for their job?

Well, it turns out, a lot of us share that same feeling of dread when faced with a big presentation, unexpected promotion or stressful work situation. But the research we commissioned for EDN also revealed a more concerning issue – that women and non-binary people were being more impacted by the condition than their male counterparts.

With the help of behavioural psychologist, Jo Hemmings, we created an insightful list of potential warning signs that your employees might be suffering and guidance on how to support them – accompanied with eye catching infographics to create a stop and look moment for readers.
