Despite evidence of accomplishments and abilities, millions of people at all levels and across all industries secretly worry they are not as smart or talented or qualified as others “think” they are. It’s called impostor syndrome.  Fortunately, there is a solution. In this highly practical webinar, you’ll learn from the leading impostor syndrome expert what impostor syndrome is, where it comes from, and how impostor feelings translate into behaviors which, left unchecked, it can lead to costly consequences not only for individuals but for their organizations as well. In addition an accomplished panel of attorneys will share their experience and advice. Together you’ll walk away with practical, immediately usable strategies to help yourself and/or the people you lead, manage, mentor, or parent to overcome this common and needless form of self-doubt.  In the second half of the seminar, our panelists and doctors will discuss Fear and how it affects behavior and attitudes in the workplace.
