Safety for the imposter

Imposter syndrome is the belief that one’s success was not deserved based on their skills or the effort they put forth, but only occurred because of happenstance or luck.

 

In this talk we will discuss the different ways imposter syndrome shows up and how we can create a safe environment for ourselves when we experience it and for others when we notice they are experiencing it.
