How to Manage Anxiety and Imposter Syndrome During a Job Transition

How to Manage Anxiety and Imposter Syndrome During a Job Transition

Anxiety and imposter syndrome impact many people, but they can be especially challenging during a job loss or transition. Thanks to advances in neuroscience and recent understandings of evolutionary biology, trauma, neuroplasticity, and the autonomic nervous system, we now have a better understanding of WHY anxiety and imposter syndrome occur – as well as the solutions to manage them.

During this program, Dr. Castellanos Hansley will explain the biology of stress, how it is supposed to operate, and how human beings get stuck in fight, flight, and freeze – thereby creating chronic anxiety, imposter syndrome, and eventually burnout. She will offer clear, simple, and practical solutions for how to interrupt these stress patterns and how to create surroundings needed to thrive and succeed. By understanding the biology of stress, attendees will be better equipped to develop effective solutions to reduce anxiety and imposter syndrome so they can focus and thrive during their job transitions and job search journeys.

You will:

  • Understand the biology of stress and imposter syndrome during job transition.
  • Gain clear and simple practical exercises to interrupt stress patterns that create anxiety.
  • Learn to create environments to thrive and succeed in.

Please join us on May 1st. Registration is required to attend (it’s free!) and space is limited so sign up today!

In that same year, she discovered that many of her challenging life and work experiences were caused by undiagnosed childhood trauma, and learned she had chronic anxiety and had been experiencing imposter syndrome.
