What is Imposter Syndrome?

Have you ever:

  • thought that you don’t deserve your success?
  • worried that people will find out that you don’t really know how to do your job?
  • thought that someone else would be better at your job than you?
  • been grateful that luck got you that new promotion or pay rise, rather than your own skills?
  • wondered when someone will wake up and realize that you are just getting by?

Congratulations! You are part of the silent majority of people who suffer from Imposter Syndrome.

Imposter Syndrome is that sinking feeling you get when you are not convinced that you know what you are doing. It is not a real medical syndrome, but it is a convenient label for that lack of self-confidence we all get from time to time, when you feel as if one day your boss will realize that you just don’t have a handle on your work.

I’ve spoken to rooms of people about Imposter Syndrome and when I ask who has ever felt like that, nearly every hand goes up, every time.

You don’t have to feel out of your depth at work.

Overcoming Imposter Syndrome: Ten Strategies to Stop Feeling Like a Fraud at Work is a new ebook that sets out (you guessed it) 10 ways to stop feeling as if you don’t know what you are doing.
