On today’s weekly Q&A I discuss imposter syndrome – what it is and some tips to overcome it.
It’s something I’ve experienced myself and while I didn’t recognise it at the time, looking back it’s really clear it was something I come up against regularly in my corporate career.
So much so, I remember one of a select hand full of high potential senior leaders invited to have lunch with the board members. Rather than being excited by the opportunity, I got really stressed the night before wondering why they picked me and that I’d be found out as not being as good as the other leaders there. I completely failed to see this for the opportunity it was and I was just as worthy of being there as my peers. What a huge amount of stress and suffering I put on myself.
So, if imposture syndrome or the feeling of ‘I’m not good enough’ is something you experience, watch the video below here for some strategies to overcome it.
