Resilience and the Imposter Syndrome

It was a pleasure to work with you in Duxford and I hope that you found our discussions useful. If there are any issues or questions you would like to discuss please do get in touch. You can reach me at kate@kateatkin.com or 07779 646976.

On this webpage you will find some extra information based on my own research and that of other experts relating to the Imposter Phenomenon and resilience.

We are still at an early stage in understanding the impact of the Imposter Phenomenon, my interest is in understanding the most effective ways of managing those imposter feelings and passing on this information to others. As I mentioned, I am now 18 months into my PhD research on this topic, so still early days. If you are interested in keeping up to date with my research findings and musings, do sign up to receive my newsletter.
