Fortunately, there is a solution.

In this surprisingly upbeat session you’ll discover what impostor syndrome is and where it comes from. As importantly, you’ll walk away with practical, immediately usable tools you can use to help yourself – or those you lead, manage, mentor, teach, or parent – to finally feel as bright and capable as they really are.
