I have been speaking to a lot of organizations lately, and whenever I have a speaking engagement, I always ask the leaders of the organization about the kinds of dynamics they are experiencing or problems they might be encountering.

One phrase that continues to come up over and over is "imposter syndrome". This is a psychological phenomenon that particularly affects people who have achieved some kind of success in their field, who then doubt their accomplishments and have a persistent fear of being exposed as a fraud. Individuals with imposter syndrome may feel like they're not worthy of their achievements or that they've simply been lucky, or that they've fooled other people into thinking that they're more capable or more knowledgeable than they actually are.

On today's episode, we discuss a few sources of imposter syndrome and how to tackle them.
