Date: Tuesday 12th October 2021

CamAWiSE are delighted to welcome Kate Atkin, an inspirational speaker, training consultant and facilitator.  With over 20 years of experience as a speaker, Kate has worked with many clients on business, management and communication issues.

Approximately 70% of people will at some point feel like a fraud, as if they don’t belong and wonder when they will be found out not to be good enough.

This masterclass will explore what the imposter syndrome is (tip: it’s really a phenomenon), why people might experience it, and help you to start to think about yourself and your successes differently – which is the starting point for overcoming the imposter chatter.

Blog – Negotiation & Conflict Resolution

The second workshop in CamAWiSE’s Navigating Workplace Dynamics series was a Negotiation and Conflict resolution session. This was run by Martina Peskoller-Fuchs, an official investigator and conflict resolver – an “Ombudsperson” for the European Molecular Biology Laboratory in Germany.

Martina begun the session by defining conflict as a situation where people disagree strongly and asked us how interpersonal conflict makes us feel. Amongst the audience, we were unanimous in sharing that conflict evoked feelings of discomfort, fear and anxiety. However, Martina reassured us that as humans, these uncomfortable feelings are normal!

Blog – Success: what lies behind the mask? An exploration of the ‘Imposter Syndrome’

Even the title was a fraud. Not a real imposter and not a syndrome – it turns out.

As the kick-off to the Navigating Workplace Dynamics CamAWiSE series, Kate Atkin, inspirational speaker, facilitator, and consultant advised us to jot down ideas in quadrants labelled ‘stop’, ‘start’, ‘think about’, and ‘carry on’. We started with Kate’s personal journey – from childhood labels to the fourth year of her PhD research investigating imposter phenomenon feelings in the workplace. In an open and engaging session Kate explained what imposter phenomenon is, where it may originate, and what we might do about it.
