Finding the Superhero Within: Overcoming the Imposter Syndrome
August 24, 2019
8:30 a.m. - 12:00 p.m.
School leadership is sometimes referred to as an "accidental profession." We are often tapped on the shoulder, while others are pushed or pulled into leadership. As an aspiring leader, we are often the last to recognize our own leadership potential, let alone believe in it. It is not uncommon for one to feel like an imposter as they enter a new leadership role. This presentation will explore our inner critic and how to overcome the Imposter Syndrome to unleash your inner superhero through vulnerability and authenticity.
