I’m very excited to announce we’ve rescheduled our guest speaker for our HarvardWIT meeting, and we have a beautiful room within Andover Hall on the Divinity School campus.
I attended a session Kim Meninger led at a Boston WITI event about two years ago on the topic of Impostor Syndrome (see below), and I reached out to her to bring a similar interactive discussion to us here at Harvard.
Date: Monday, April 23
Location: Sperry Room in Andover Hall (Harvard Divinity School campus), 45 Francis Avenue
Topic: Greater Confidence, Greater Career Success
Speaker: Kim Meninger, executive coach and founder of Executive Career Success, LLC
All are welcome!
There’s no attendance fee, but we need to manage the number of people in the room, so we’re requiring individual pre-registration through Harvard Training Portal – here’s the link:
If you can’t get into the Training Portal (may not be available to students/contractors and those external to Harvard), please send me an email with your name and affiliation to firstname.lastname@example.org so we have accurate attendance numbers and know when we’ve reached capacity.
Topic Description: Greater Confidence, Greater Career Success
At one time or another, virtually every professional will experience challenges with confidence. You may doubt your ability to perform a specific role or function, question the value of a comment you’d like to share, or hesitate to connect with another colleague or leader. While confidence gaps are normal, if not managed effectively, they can prevent you from reaching your professional goals. Perhaps you struggle with Impostor Syndrome, a term for the feelings of self-doubt and inadequacy many professionals face, particularly as they reach higher levels of success. This interactive discussion will help you to identify common triggers of low confidence and develop key strategies for overcoming your feelings of self-doubt, to more quickly and easily achieve your goals.
