Imposter syndrome is loosely defined as doubting your abilities and feeling like a fraud. It disproportionately affects high-achieving people, who find it difficult to accept their accomplishments.
Also called perceived fraudulence, it involves feelings of self-doubt and personal incompetence that persist despite your education, experience, and accomplishments. To counter these feelings, sufferers might end up working harder and holding themselves to ever higher standards.
Listen to Dr. Tara Swart, neuroscientist, leadership coach, award-winning author and medical doctor as she breaks down imposter syndrome and explains how to overcome it.
