Why do capable people feel like imposters and what can we do about it?

Millions of people — CEOs and entry-level professionals, first year college students and PhDs, artists and programmers — secretly worry they're not as smart or talented as other people 'think' they are.

This is imposter syndrome and it impacts both individuals and organisations. 

Left unchecked, it can lead to costly consequences not only for individuals but for their organisations as well. Fortunately, there is a solution.

What you will learn in this 40-minute session:

  • What impostor syndrome is
  • Who is most susceptible. 
  • Three practical, immediately usable tools to put in place to help yourself and/or the people you lead, manage, mentor, teach, or parent.
