Motivated women are everywhere. But many female leaders often don’t give themselves permission to strive for the very top. In October 2022, KPMG polled 750 high-performing executive women who are one or two career steps away from the C-suite and found that 75% have experienced imposter syndrome in their careers. Facebook COO Sheryl Sandberg, actress Natalie Portman, revered author Maya Angelou, former first lady Michelle Obama, and many others, have all reported suffering from impostor syndrome.
This session will dive into the common characteristics of ambitious women and share tried-and-true habits you can implement to cultivate success. We’ll help you overcome imposter syndrome and offer pragmatic tools to be a powerful voice in the C-Suite and boardroom.
