Ever feel like you don't know what you're doing? That you're fooling everyone around you?
You're not alone !! Around 70% population identify with these feelings of self-doubt and incompetence: hello Imposter Syndrome.
In this episode, I am joined by Dr. Sanne Feenstra (University of Groningen) to discuss this widespread phenomenon.
- the relationship between imposter syndrome and gender
- how the pandemic has intensified imposter syndrome
- the myth that imposter syndrome goes away with success
Finally, rather than putting the onus on the individual to change their mindset, we discuss why organisations have a responsibility to PREVENT imposter syndrome, and how they can start.
