Do you sometimes feel like a fraud?
Do you worry that there's been a huge mistake and you're not really fit for your role?
Are you afraid that people are going to find out you don't have what it takes to do your job?
If you answered yes to any of these questions, you are one of the many women who struggle with Impostor Syndrome. The good news is you are not alone! Research shows that roughly 70% of the population will experience Impostor Syndrome at one time or another, including many high-profile figures.
What is Impostor Syndrome?
Impostor Syndrome is a term used to describe feelings of self-doubt, inadequacy an incompetence despite external evidence to the contrary. Impostor Syndrome often strikes during times of transition as you take on new responsibilities and step outside of your comfort zone. It can wreak havoc on your confidence, leaving you in a persistent state of anxiety.
Impostor Syndrome is also triggered when we feel different from the dominant culture around us. This is why so many women in traditionally male-dominated workplaces struggle with feelings of self-doubt. When you're one of a few, or an "only," you're much more likely to see yourself as an impostor.
Impostor Syndrome is normal. It's only natural that, at one time or another, you will doubt your ability to do something, question the value of your ideas, or hesitate to connect with others because you doubt yourself. What is most important is that you manage this experience. Without proper management, Impostor Syndrome can keep you in a chronic state of anxiety and keep you from reaching your full potential.
What can I do about Impostor Syndrome?
There are countless books and articles on Impostor Syndrome but a passive approach is ineffective. What you need is an active experience that empowers you to understand the roots of your self-doubt, embrace your strengths and develop an actionable strategy to boost your confidence.
