If so, you likely struggle with Impostor Syndrome, a term for the feelings of self-doubt and inadequacy many professionals face, particularly as we advance our careers.

This is why Impostor Syndrome is so pervasive among women in traditionally male-dominated fields. You’ll also learn strategies to build your confidence and manage these disruptive feelings so that you can effectively achieve your professional goals.
