"What Is Imposter Syndrome, and How Can You Overcome It?"

Have you ever been plagued by doubts in a professional context? Perhaps you’ve wondered if you have the right skills to continue with your current role.

You may be surprised to realize that these self-doubts are extremely common. Imposter syndrome can be a genuine problem in the workforce, because it can prevent people from having the confidence to aim high, even when they have the right skills and competencies to progress in their careers.

Coined by psychologists Suzanna Imes and Pauline Rose Clance over 50 years ago, the term ‘imposter syndrome’ describes a phenomenon whereby you feel incompetent in your job role.

You may feel that you are a fraud and you’re waiting for someone to discover that you do not have the right skills for the job. Imposter syndrome is a combination of false beliefs, self-doubt, low confidence and feelings of inadequacy.
