Feel like a fraud? Hello Imposter Syndrome

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.

We cover:

  • 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.
